WWE SmackDown: 5 reasons why Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan teamed up again
#2 To give Daniel Bryan more screen time before Crown Jewel
There is no denying that Daniel Bryan is one of the biggest WWE Superstars of this generation. The underdog defied all odds to become one of the biggest names in the industry.
During the previous Crown Jewel event, Bryan was set to take on AJ Styles for the WWE Championship. He had earned the position after defeating The Miz at WWE Super Show-Down.
However, before Crown Jewel could even take place, the two men got in a heated exchange which led to their match taking place a week early on an episode of SmackDown. This was originally done as Bryan had refused to travel to Saudi Arabia due to some controversies.
Keeping that in mind, it’s safe to assume that Bryan won’t be making the trip to Saudi Arabia once again this year as he has still not been advertised for the event, nor has he been declared as a part of any match.
Therefore, the company may be keeping that Superstar in the loop on television since SmackDown has moved to FOX and would require the top stars to continue competing so that the ratings remain up before the big event.
Last year, Bryan won the WWE Championship after Crown Jewel and just before Survivor Series in a shocking victory. WWE could be planning something similar for the Superstar either before or after PPV.Published 19 Oct 2019, 20:48 IST
