5 Reasons why The Fiend vs Daniel Bryan is best for business
Two weeks ago, 'The Fiend' attacked Bryan with his signature Mandible Claw. The following week we saw Bray Wyatt mock Bryan’s ‘Yes!’ chants during the latter’s appearance on the Miz TV. The reigning Universal champion clearly has a bone to pick a bone with Bryan and he is trying everything he can to get under his skin.
Interestingly, both these Superstars represent instability inside the ring. They are similar in so many ways and yet possess notable differences in their respective personas. This rivalry between Bryan and Wyatt for the Universal championship could turn into a memorable feud if the WWE Creatives play their cards right.
In this article, we take a look at five reasons why the budding feud between Daniel Bryan and Bray Wyatt’s alter-ego, ‘The Fiend’ is best for WWE’s overall business.
#5 Puts Adam Cole in a balanced fight
Ever since The Fiend defeated Seth Rollins at WWE Crown Jewel to become the Universal Champion, speculations about a triple-threat match between Brock Lesnar, The Fiend, and Adam Cole started doing rounds.
However, WWE had other plans. It was announced that Lesnar will defend his WWE Championship against Rey Mysterio and The Fiend will defend his Universal Championship against Daniel Bryan.
The WWE Universe saw NXT Champion Adam Cole successfully defend his title on both SmackDown and RAW. That booking certainly allowed the leader of the Undisputed Era to stand tall and enjoy his moment in the invasion storyline heading into Survivor Series. But that wouldn’t happen again if he was to share the ring with Lesnar and The Fiend at the upcoming PPV.
Now that both Lesnar and The Fiend are defending their titles against other challengers, it allows the creatives to put Cole in a much more balanced fight. He will now face the winner of a triple threat match between Pete Dunne, Killian Dain, and Damian Priest scheduled to take place at Takeover: WarGames to determine the No. 1 contender for Cole’s gold.
