#5: Daniel Bryan and Jey Uso's feud resulted in a heated match between the two stars on WWE SmackDown
Daniel Bryan is one of the best in-ring competitors in WWE today. Despite being a part of the relatively less important match on the card, his bout against Jey Uso delivered in several aspects.
Jey Uso has ambushed Daniel Bryan in the past, and their conflict has only increased ever since Uso bowed down to The Tribal Chief of WWE, Roman Reigns.
Jey Uso attacked Daniel Bryan from behind when the latter was making his entrance before their bout could even begin.
Reportedly, WWE had to re-shoot a portion of this match as Bryan was instructed to sell Uso's attack to a greater degree. The same direction became apparent in the final product, as Jey Uso's intense attitude made him look like a dangerous athlete, for the most part.
Towards the end, Bryan managed to outmaneuver his opponent with a Running Knee, which guaranteed him the victory against Uso.
This match and the resulting victory could have been a way for Daniel Bryan to step up against Roman Reigns in January, next year.
