WWE never thought Bryan Danielson on the level of Roman Reigns

Last updated

In quite the indictment of WWE, a new report has been released mentioning that the company did not see Daniel Bryan/Bryan Danielson as being on the same level as Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Dave Meltzer confirmed as much a recent issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, claiming that WWE never saw the former Champion as a Top Guy in the company. 

“Keep in mind while they absolutely liked him and saw him as a star, even as he saved a WrestleMania and sports teams throughout the country were doing ‘Yes,’ chants, they never thought he was the top guy and that Roman Reigns was, because they know more than the fans.”


If this is the case? Then what the hell were they thinking!?

It was clear to everyone watching WWE programming that Bryan Danielson was one of the top performers of the 21st Century, and he was so massively over around WrestleMania 30 that the mainstream was beginning to take notice.

Hopefully, this is a spurious claim from the WON because there is surely no chance that WWE wouldn’t see what is directly in front of them…right?
