As seen on SmackDown this week, Daniel Bryan lost the Money in the Bank qualifying match against Samoa Joe and Big Cass in a 3-way match.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE didn’t book Bryan for the Money in the Bank Ladder Match is because it would increase his chances for injuries.
“Joe won a three-way over Daniel Bryan and Big Cass (whose second knee injury was not legit, and was just playing off a storyline at the London tapings) to take the final spot. It’s just as well that Bryan isn’t in that match because ladder matches increase both the chances for neck injuries and for concussions.”
With Bryan not in the ladder match, it’s very possible WWE announces Bryan vs. Cass for the event because it appears that is the match they are building to. If they don’t announce the match for the show, it will probably take place at the next pay-per-view event.
