If you’re a betting man, the early favorite to win the 2014 WWE Royal Rumble as it stands right now is none other than Daniel Bryan. With plans currently penciled in up until WrestleMania XXX, Daniel Bryan remains at the forefront of all of them and winning the big January event is currently in the WWE’s plans.
The idea behind this would be that Daniel Bryan’s dream of finally winning the WWE Title without any shenanigans (I love using that word) would culminate at WrestleMania XXX. It’d make the SummerSlam win-and-loss to a MITB-holding Randy Orton and the victory-turned-vacant-Championship win at Night of Champions all pay off.
Of course plans can change, but Bryan winning the Rumble is something I’ve heard for months. Furthermore, a potential WrestleMania XXX match that I’ve been hearing for months would be Daniel Bryan vs CM Punk.
