According to the latest reports, WWE doesn’t want to feature Daniel Bryan in yet another WrestleMania main event. No matter how much the fans cheer for Bryan, the officials are not sold on the idea to put him in the main event or title picture. They just don’t see him as the next face of the company.
Reports came out earlier this week that the officials are going with their original plan from last year, which was Bryan-Sheamus III at WrestleMania, but they were nixed due to CM Punk walking out on WWE. Officials wanted Sheamus to return as a heel and start his program with Bryan for WrestleMania 31 and apparently, that storyline has been dropped yet again. Instead of that, there are now talks of doing Dolph Ziggler vs. Daniel Bryan for WrestleMania. And since officials don’t want Bryan in a main event, that match is being discussed to be the opening bout at Mania.
Apparently, the seeds for Ziggler-Bryan have been planted, as they exchanged words about a match at WrestleMania, on twitter.
In Ziggler’s last 5 WrestleMania matches, he was never involved in a singles match. At WrestleMania 26, he took part in the Money in the Bank ladder match, but couldn’t win. At WrestleMania 27, he was involved in a 6 person mixed tag team match where he teamed up with Michelle McCool & Layla (together known as LayCool) to take on the team of John Morrison, Nicole Polizzi & Trish Startus, where his team lost. At WrestleMania 28, he was a part of the winning team of a 12 man tag team match. At WrestleMania 29, he and Big E teamed up to take on Team Hell No in a Tag Team Title match, but failed to capture the titles. Last year at WrestleMania 30, he was a part of the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, which was won by Cesaro. So Ziggler hasn’t stolen any WrestleMania show till now, but he will definitely try to do it this time!
