Daniel Bryan is currently a WWE Superstar, and he competes on the SmackDown brand. He is one of the most successful WWE stars in recent memory. Aside from the WWE Universal Championship, he has won every men's title the company has to offer. Bryan currently has his sights set on winning the 2021 Men's Royal Rumble Match.
In an interview with Michael Morales Torres of Lucha Libre Online, Daniel Bryan spoke about WWE's upcoming pay-per-view, the Royal Rumble. Having announced his entry into the event's marquee match, Bryan discussed how the significance of winning the Rumble has changed over the years.
"I think that the role of it has changed. It's still a very prominent position to win the Royal Rumble. But as we've seen, winning the Royal Rumble doesn't guarantee you being the last match at WrestleMania the way that it used to. And it also makes it challenging because...now we have two Royal Rumbles on the Royal Rumble show. We have a Women's Royal Rumble Match and we have a Men's Royal Rumble Match."
The Royal Rumble has certainly changed a lot over the years. Previously, the battle royal automatically guaranteed the winner a main event match at WrestleMania. But with the number of titles WWE has added, it has become difficult to identify which main championship Superstars should strive to fight for.
