Daniel Bryan’s WrestleMania Opponent Has Finally Been Decided?
Daniel Bryan is the current WWE Champion but he defends his World Championship at Fastlane in just over two weeks time against Kofi Kingston.
The former United States Champion isn’t expected to lift the Championship on March 10th, since WWE has already started planning for Daniel Bryan’s WrestleMania opponent.
There have been a number of names thrown into the hat ahead of WrestleMania including Batista, John Cena and Sami Zayn, but according to a report by Bleacher Report, the current plan is for Kevin Owens to make his return to the company and challenge Bryan at the Show of Shows.
There is now less than two months until WrestleMania and it appears that this isn’t the only match that’s still up in the air.
Why WrestleMania Match Card Isn’t Finalized Just Yet
WrestleMania takes place on April 7th, which is less than eight weeks away and it appears that the card is still reportedly “in flux”. According to a report by Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer, this is because of the uncertainty of The Undertaker‘s role as part of the show.
Undertaker has been a main part of WrestleMania for almost three decades and with rumors now circulating that The Deadman may have retired from the business and isn’t set to make his return as part of this year’s show, WrestleMania plans have been thrown through a loop.
Meltzer also confirmed that this is the latest WWE has ever been when it comes to finalizing a WrestleMania card with just two matches confirmed and one of those is expected to change in the coming weeks.
WWE has had a number of problems with superstars asking for releases in recent weeks including Dean Ambrose, The Revival and now Tye Dillinger so it’s not that much of a surprise that the company is struggling to put a card together, since they don’t know who will still be wrestling for them at this point.
