Having been tossed out of the Royal Rumble match and then suffering a humiliating defeat to Roman Reigns, WWE headliner-turned-ham-and-egger Daniel Bryan has set his sights on the more attainable goal of becoming Divas champion.
Bryan, whose ascent to the top of sports entertainment at last year’s WrestleMania has been overshadowed by his rapid decline to Ryder-esque jobberdom, figures he can “probably take Nikki Bella.”
It is unclear why Bryan has forgotten how to wrestle, but some fans and pundits believe girlfriend Brie Bella is having a “Yoko Ono effect” on him, sapping him of his drive and God-given talent.
Although fans once balked at the suggestion that Bryan was a mere “B-plus player,” his recent losses, particularly to the relatively untested Roman Reigns, put Bryan squarely in D-minus range.
Bryan has challenged sister-in-law Nikki Bella to a WrestleMania title match, but she reportedly wants to defend her championship against a more credible opponent.
