Why Daniel Bryan’s Re-evaluation was moved up?

In the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer pointed out that Daniel Bryan was originally scheduled to be re-evaluated before the March 27th episode of SmackDown Live. The reason his re-evaluation was moved up was to give the WWE creative team sufficient time to work on the creative plans if Bryan wouldn’t have been cleared.


The belief was that if Bryan didn’t receive the green signal, then the creative would have written him off TV as the SmackDown Live GM ahead of his contract expiring in September.


Luckily this wasn’t the case as he was cleared and now we are looking forward to a potential Wrestlemania Tag Team match featuring Bryan & Shane taking on the notorious duo of Sami & Kevin.
