#1 Best: Daniel Bryan vs. Seth Rollins begins on WWE SmackDown
When two top stars work with one another, it is always a good thing and so, the sight of Daniel Bryan and Seth Rollins in a WWE SmackDown ring was a very positive development. Both men have come up through the independents and are two of the best workers in the entire WWE SmackDown roster, so when they work with one another, the money is guaranteed to flow.
The Seth Rollins vs. Rey Mysterio feud has been going on since forever, and it may just be the right time for both men to move on to new opponents. Yes, the whole Murphy and Dominik Mysterio storyline is far from done, judging by what we saw on this week's edition of WWE SmackDown, but the storyline is winding down and new feuds are getting set in stone. Who else is excited at the thought of a Seth Rollins vs. Daniel Bryan feud?
