WWE is changing in a lot of ways. They are pushing wrestlers that you wouldn’t normally think could be on the top of the card. This could be largely thanks to current WWE Champion Daniel Bryan.
Dave Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observer Radio that Daniel Bryan lost to Kofi Kingston again on SmackDown Live. It turns out that this was likely Daniel Bryan’s idea because he is looking for people to face which is also why he apparently pulled for Mustafa Ali’s push as well.
“That’s probably [Daniel Bryan’s] idea. I’m sure that he’s got a lot of what’s the word I’m looking for? He’s got a lot of input about what’s going on. I mean, Mustafa Ali’s his guy essentially. So you know look, he’s looking to make contenders for himself. I’ll put it this way, he’s right on the border. One more time and I’ll think it’s a cliche, now it’s three. Maybe it’s one too many at this point.”
WWE didn’t book Kofi Kingston to beat Daniel Bryan clean in a singles match this week on SmackDown. It was in a six-man tag so that takes a bit of the heat off of the loss. Still, Bryan is putting guys over because he wants to face talented wrestlers. Now it seems like he has the backstage pull to get that done.
