Daniel Bryan at Elimination Chamber 2021
Daniel Bryan entered this year's SmackDown Elimination Chamber match at the very beginning with Cesaro. After an iron-man performance, Daniel Bryan finally eliminated Jey Uso last to win the match.
The winner of the match was supposed to face Universal Champion Roman Reigns on the same night and The Tribal Chief left no stones unturned to get the maximum possible advantage by immediately appearing and starting the Universal Championship match against an exhausted opponent.
Daniel Bryan, however, surprised everyone with a quick submission counter and for a moment Roman Reigns looked to be in massive trouble. However, the Universal Champion overpowered Bryan and locked in the Guillotine submission hold to pick up a rather easy victory at WWE Elimination Chamber 2021. Following that, the 2021 men's Royal Rumble winner Edge attacked Roman Reigns, making his intentions clear to challenge the Universal Champion at WrestleMania 37.
