Second chances are hard to come by, but Daniel Bryan just earned his.
Bryan fell to “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt at Survivor Series in November, and he was subsequently dragged to hell and had his hair ripped out by the Universal Champion several nights later. This horrific scene left many to wonder if Wyatt had broken Bryan permanently.
Instead, quite the opposite happened: It gave Bryan new life.
Coming back with a new look and a new yet familiar attitude, Bryan reconnected with the WWE Universe, reignited the “Yes!” Movement and defeated The Miz and King Corbin in a Triple Threat Match on the December 27 edition of Friday Night SmackDown to earn the right to yet again challenge “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt for the Universal Title at Royal Rumble 2020.
After “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt attempted to attack Kane on the Jan. 17 edition of SmackDown, Bryan asked for the Universal Title to be on the line in a Strap Match at Royal Rumble, where a leather strap will be tied to the wrist of each competitor.
Who will survive when the competitors are bound by the wrists for what is sure to be a harrowing showdown? Find out when Royal Rumble 2020 streams live on the award-winning WWE Network on Sunday, Jan. 26!
