Bryan’s return to WWE after his 2-year absence from in-ring competition due to injury has been somewhat subpar, to say the least. He was at the top when he won the WWE championship at Wrestlemania 30. But now he’s been relegated to B-grade feuds, even if it is with his long-time nemesis, The Miz.
Dave Meltzer discussed this on Wrestling Observer Radio saying that some people in WWE consider Bryan as just ”a guy”. This is what he said:
“The whole Daniel Bryan booking since WrestleMania, that actually should go down as promotional malpractice. As over as he was when he first made the comeback to where he is now. He’s still popular and they’ll chant but it’s like he’s just a guy… even guys in the company you know bring it up.”
“On the road, he’s more than ‘just a guy’ but they’ll go like: ‘Yeah, you watch the TV he’s just a guy on the roster and he should be so much more than that.’”
It’s unfortunate seeing Bryan not being in the main event scene. We hope he gets an opportunity soon enough.
