According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via Cageside Seats), WWE may be considering a heel turn for Daniel Bryan as part of his ongoing feud with Shane McMahon. The report also speculated that it may be an attempt to hurt Bryan’s value if he leaves later this year.
Bryan has constantly been at odds with WWE over his desire to return to the ring. He claims that he’s been cleared by multiple doctors but not WWE’s doctor. Bryan also said that if he doesn’t wrestle by Wrestlemania, then he won’t wrestle with WWE at all.
