Top WWE Superstar Not Scheduled For Royal Rumble Spot

As reported, Daniel Bryan was cleared to return from a concussion on Monday afternoon. WWE made sure not to put him in a position where he would have to take bumps on last night’s show so he could have another week to rest up before the Royal Rumble singles match against Bray Wyatt.

Many fans have been wondering if Bryan will have a spot in the 30-man Royal Rumble main event. As of Monday afternoon, Bryan was not going to be in the match. His only appearance at the Rumble is scheduled to be the match against Wyatt.

    He may not be the face of WWE that everyone wanted him to be but he is sure their prized asset for the company!

  • Prince

    So damn stupid. They’ll never learn. Batista is a lock to win now. Boring.

  • That Guy

    I think he wasn’t added so that there’s a chance he could appear near the end of the match. Perhaps not and this is WWEs way of keeping him from the belt at the time being. It does seem they’re dead set on Orton or Batista being in that scene for a while at least.

    Not sure why you all are blaming the WWE having it against him. The article states clearly that he isn’t announced in the RR yet because of his concussion. I don’t know about you guys but I much rather the WWE and Bryan be safe about it. Think about how they handled Ziggler’s. AJ’s. Fandango’s. Christian’s. Whomever else I am forgetting. Concussion’s are serious business and for a guy that flies around the ring, post to post, like he does — it is smart to err on the side of caution.

    The match with Bray Wyatt is booked to give the fans some Daniel Bryan even if he isn’t in the RR. It is much more easier to calculate and plan the match out between two people to ensure no planned spots that could be of risk.

      It’s just like how people can’t accept stone cold is done, if he takes a wrong bump he could be crippled, but some fans only care about the entertainment.

    It sucks that Batista is gonna be the main focus from up until April for Wrestlemania. I really feel like the 2014 Royal Rumble was meant for Bryan or Punk to win. The only way I could see Bryan in the Rumble is if he enters at 29 or 30 and to avoid the longevity of the match due to his concussion. And it would suck majorly if he were to further aggravate his condition. On the other hand, I think that Bray and Bryan are going to put on a hard hitting match. Idk. I just hope Punk can win the Rumble. It just sucks that guys like Lesnar and Batista just show up whenever and get automatically inserted into the title picture.
