Daniel Bryan is still the eco friendly WWE Champion after surviving Elimination Chamber. Wrestling fans will soon find out who Daniel Bryan’s Fastlane opponent is very quickly, but that’s just a “filler” because the WWE is actually planning something special for WrestleMania 35.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed WWE’s plans for Bryan’s Wrestlemania opponent. In spite of Kofi Kingston impressing the internet fans so much he is actually not on the cards or even on WWE’s radar for Wrestlemania as far as we know. Instead, WWE has a few names in mind to bring back instead.
“Kofi Kingston was not the plan as of this morning for either Fastlane or WrestleMania, and obviously things can change. So the WrestleMania story that I’ve heard was that it would be someone who is being brought back as opposed to somebody he’s been facing.”
“The people on the list for discussion that could be brought back Bray Wyatt, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Kurt Angle, Undertaker, John Cena, Batista — Kurt Angle has been in discussion for WrestleMania, I don’t think it’s going to be Kurt Angle though. There could be others but those are the names that I’m aware of that are available for discussion.”
We will have to wait and see who WWE decides to book against Daniel Bryan.
They still have some time to make an announcement. If the plans are to address a Fastlane opponent on smackdown tonight then we might not know about Daniel Bryan’s WrestleMania opponent is until March rolls around.
