Daniel Bryan had his eye set on Sami Zayn and the Intercontinental Title. Then things changed for him with Money In The Bank came around and Sami Zayn went home. Those two things are not related.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that WWE has always wanted Daniel Bryan in the Money In The Bank match. His stint feuding with Sami Zayn was apparently going to be paused regardless of the IC Champion’s whereabouts.
Even though Zayn is IC champion and Mania seemed to start a long-term program with Bryan, Bryan was always booked to be in MITB before Zayn made the call not to attend the recent tapings
Sami Zayn didn’t want to attend the latest set of tapings. We’ll have to see if he returns to SmackDown next week. Since he has the IC Title that could present an interesting situation if the champion can’t show up to the blue brand.
What do you think WWE should do about the IC Title if Sami Zayn can’t come back? Sound off in the comments below!
