• Former WWE Champion Possibly Turning Heel Soon
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials might be turning former WWE Champion and current SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan heel soon.
The seeds for this heel turn were kind of planted on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live when Bryan announced that AJ Styles will defend the WWE Championship in a Handicap match against Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn at Royal Rumble 2018 and this announcement wasn’t something that a babyface character would make.
Possible reason behind WWE turning Bryan heel could be to ensure less WWE fans watch Bryan on the indy scene if he plans to leave the company later this year when his contract expires.
