The return of Daniel Bryan from his retirement was nothing short of miraculous.

After being told he'd never wrestle in WWE again, Bryan worked hard for the company, though hinted at leaving so he could wrestle elsewhere.

Making his big in-ring return at WrestleMania, Bryan has been on fire since, though shockingly turned on the WWE Universe when he won the WWE Championship from AJ Styles in November.

Now a fully-fledged heel, fans have been left wondering who will Bryan face next in 2019, and whilst he has a rematch with the Phenomenal One at the Royal Rumble, most are expecting Bryan to once again defeat the former champion.

If he does, that does leave the question of who will be the one to beat Bryan, and finally shut the former YES! Movement leader up.

Here are five Superstars who could dethrone WWE Champion Daniel Bryan in 2019.


5: The Miz

It may be impossible to believe, but there have been rumors of a face Miz Vs. heel Daniel Bryan match for WrestleMania.

Currently teaming with Shane McMahon, 2018 was a big year for the A-Lister, who, despite having just one title reign (the Intercontinental Championship), also had a high-profile feud with the then-face Bryan.

The two clearly have history past last year though, as Bryan joined the WWE in the original NXT, as the rookie of The Miz, despite having much more experience, and even defeated the Cleveland star to win his first title in WWE, the US Championship.

That said though, a match like this would be difficult to pull off, as regardless of how much the WWE may want these two to change, they'll still be fans who'll always boo Miz and cheer Bryan.
