Daniel Bryan shocked the entire wrestling universe when he made a triumphant in-ring return at WrestleMania 34, where he teamed up with Shane McMahon to defeat the team of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Following his blockbuster return at WrestleMania 34, he was booked in a mediocre feud with Big Cass which derailed the momentum he had with him at that point in time.

Going into SummerSlam he was booked in a long-awaited feud with The Miz but not even that could revive his fading popularity. Daniel Bryan continued to feud with Miz for the next two months until the start of the build towards WWE Survivor Series last year. Bryan and Miz clashed in a number one contender's match at WWE Super Show-Down to determine the new challenger for the then WWE Champion AJ Styles.

Daniel Bryan emerged victorious at WWE Super Show-Down event in Melbourne and earned himself a shot at the WWE champion. Bryan cashed in his championship match opportunity on the last SmackDown Live episode before WWE Survivor Series. As expected, both AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan had a fantastic back and forth encounter which culminated with a shocking climax.

A year-long record-breaking title reign of AJ Styles came to an end with a perfectly executed heel turn from Daniel Bryan as he low blew AJ Styles in the finishing stages of the match and then hit the running knee to dethrone Styles. Bryan not only ended the title reign of AJ Styles but also altered the main event of WWE Survivor Series as he replaced AJ and went on to face Brock Lesnar in a dream Champion versus Champion match.

Currently, Daniel Bryan is in the second month of his title reign and is set to defend the WWE Championship against AJ Styles at the upcoming Royal Rumble PPV. Analyzing recent booking trends, it does seem like Daniel Bryan will manage to retain WWE Championship and move onto newer challengers after Royal Rumble PPV. In this slideshow, we are going to take a look at potential opponents for Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania 35 assuming he is still the WWE champion till the commencement of the biggest WWE PPV of the year.

#3 Daniel Bryan vs John Cena

The rematch of the main event of WWE SummerSlam 2013 is one of the probable WWE Championship matches for this year's mega event. John Cena has announced his entry into the Royal Rumble match on the latest edition of WWE Raw and will obviously be present in the list of favorites to win the annual Royal Rumble match.

Considering that Cena is on the verge of creating history by winning another World Championship, WWE might be tempted to use this as one of the major selling points for WrestleMania 35. The history between John Cena and Daniel Bryan can be the driving force for this program if it does come into fruition.
