• Original WrestleMania 35 Plan For Daniel Bryan Revealed

According to the Wrestling Observer, the original WrestleMania 35 plan for Daniel Bryan was for him to face SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon.

WWE officials even teased it on this week’s SmackDown Live prior to Bryan’s WWE Title win over AJ Styles. However, plans for Bryan vs. Shane have now been dropped due to Bryan’s Title win.

Word going on is that Shane was scheduled to turn heel after his WWE World Cup win at WWE Crown Jewel and this would’ve then led to a match with Bryan at WrestleMania 35, but it looks like Shane’s heel turn might have been dropped after Bryan’s Title win.

We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
