As Daniel Bryan was medically cleared to compete in matches, it is confirmed that WWE will include him in this biggest Rumble match, ever. This should turn out to be the biggest attraction of the night in Saudi. Fans are over-excited after hearing that he is the favorite to win the match, as well.
As per reports from Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the leader of the YES movement has the biggest chance to win this contest and this will make the crowd happy to get over the fact that Daniel Bryan has never won a Royal Rumble match before. Check out the updates from SportsKeeda.com, regarding this,
“Meltzer also weighed in on Bryan being one of the favorites to win the Royal Rumble Match which took place in January of this year. Meltzer noted that the betting odds led to rumors of WWE clearing Bryan to make his in-ring return, however, there is no truth to said rumors as they had nothing to do with people being aware of him wrestling again.”
During promotion for the event, the former Smackdown general manager expressed his desire to participate in the Greatest Royal Rumble. According to him, there’s potential that this should turn out to be historically more significant than WrestleMania. Later, an official update was provided that he would be included in the mix.
