We’re counting down to the Royal Rumble: a variation of the traditional Battle Royal match, with a total of 30 competitors. Two WWE Superstars start in the ring, every 90 seconds thereafter another Superstar enters. A Superstar is eliminated when they’re thrown over the top rope and both feet touch the floor. The last remaining Superstar is guaranteed a championship opportunity at WrestleMania versus the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
WWE Superstar: Daniel Bryan
Height: 5′ 10”
Weight: 210 lbs.

Is he physically and mentally capable of out-lasting 29 other WWE Superstars? YES!
Is Daniel Bryan the hottest Superstar in the WWE today? YES!
Can Daniel Bryan be a dominant WWE World Heavyweight Champion? YES!
Seriously, Bryan has found himself interwoven in WWE’s main angles and storylines for some time now. Mistreated by The Authority – Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, Bryan has been fighting a treacherous uphill battle. All his efforts valiant, the Washington native “Yes” man will not rest until he exacts revenge while claiming the WWE World Heavyweight title.
If he enters the Royal Rumble match, expect Daniel Bryan to leave it all in the ring, scrapping tooth and nail with every entrant climbing through those ropes. Feeding off the energy from a sure-to-be raucous crowd, this could be Bryan’s chance to not only headline WrestleMania XXX and secure himself as thee star of this era, but to also settle a longstanding score fans have been clamoring to see.
