• Bray Wyatt Comments On The Fiend vs. Daniel Bryan Match At Royal Rumble 2020

As seen on Friday’s episode of SmackDown, Daniel Bryan defeated The Miz and King Corbin in a triple threat match to become the #1 contender for the Universal Championship.

He will now face The Fiend for the Title at Royal Rumble 2020.

Bray Wyatt issued the following statement regarding this match on Instagram:

“In 2014 I had one of my favorite bouts of my career against Daniel Bryan at The Royal Rumble. Bryan was red hot, it was his time. He went on to main event WrestleMania and become the champ. Deservedly so, Bryan is without a doubt the best I’ve ever been in the ring with.

Fast forward to 2020…… The Fiend vs Daniel Bryan at The Royal Rumble. Bryan is like myself in the fact that no one said, ‘This is a guy we should build our companie’s future around!’, the first time we walked in the door.

WE had to scratch and claw, outwork, out talk, out perform everyone on the pedestal in front of us. Daniel Bryan is one of the greatest of all time. But this is not his time, it’s mine.

This is when my name becomes synonymous with the industry I have given my life to. I want to thank you Bryan for the blood we’ve spilled together over the years. But understand, for me, this is my war worth dying for. The choice isn’t mine to make. Good luck.”
