Will WWE be successful in tarnishing the legacy of one of their most beloved and successful superstars at WrestleMania 34, or is the company capable of doing the right thing and giving one of their top stars the send-off they deserve? While some might see these two options as non-nonsensical hyperbole, here's why things are looking bad right now.

Dave Meltzer discussed the Shane McMahon versus Daniel Bryan storyline taking place on Smackdown Live recently, and while he admitted that it was only speculation at this point in time, he did admit that he believes the feud is being used to tarnish Bryan's value in the indy scene.

With that being said and the evidence becoming more and more clear as the days count down to WrestleMania 34, here are five things that prove WWE is intentionally trying to tarnish Bryan's legacy with his storyline.

Some of these will be storyline driven and others will be rumours and innuendo, but hopefully, this will help you make an informed decision.

#5 Aligning him with heels

While this might be one of the more obvious things WWE is doing in order to turn Daniel Bryan heel and tarnishing his legacy, it is one of the weaker arguments in this discussion. A lot of that has to do with the fact that Bryan is aligning himself with Zayn and Owens in order to combat the unfairness shown by Shane McMahon, but its starting to make Bryan look bad.

With that being said and Bryan seemingly helping Zayn and Owens save their jobs multiple times despite fans begging him not to every single week, it's pretty safe to assume that Bryan is a heel for now. Whether that changes or not is anyone's guess and WWE could very well let him redeem himself at WrestleMania 34, but that's just speculation right now.
