Initially, Daniel Bryan was going to face AJ Styles at WWE Crown Jewel for the WWE Championship. But due to Bryan refusing to go to Saudi Arabia, the match took place on Smackdown Live. Bryan would fail to capture the title as he was made to submit by AJ Styles.

On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez gave the grave news that the situation for Daniel Bryan might be worse than fans expect. This is what he had to say:

“I was told that the finish on SmackDown last night was the Crown Jewel finish. So it looks like no big plans for Daniel Bryan throughout the rest of the year. He had just won a tournament for a championship match at Crown Jewel and he didn’t want to go to Crown Jewel so they had their match on SmackDown and they had a finish and everyone else moves on.”

With Samoa Joe returning and being in the title picture, it seems Bryan won’t be challenging for the title again anytime soon. We hope he gets something to do eventually. Else it would be a waste.
