Reason For WWE Advertising Daniel Bryan As Special Guest Referee At SmackDown Live In Chicago

Dave Meltzer discussed On the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio about Daniel Bryan being advertised as a Special Guest Referee for the WWE SmackDown Live Event on December 26th, from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois.

Meltzer says that the reason WWE is using Daniel Bryan in advertisements in the area, is due to the fact that WWE has had a hard time as of late pushing ticket sales in the markets that feature double events. Since RAW is running the night before from the same arena, ticket sales for SmackDown Live the following night may not be doing as well.

Meltzer went on to add that WWE may also be trying to capitalize on recent rumors and internet buzz surrounding Bryan, by placing him as a referee fans may speculate that he will somehow get involved in the match. However, Bryan will most likely not get involved in the match physically since he has not yet been cleared physically by WWE Doctors. Until Bryan receives clearance from WWE Doctors, which may never happen, it is said that there is a strict “hands off” policy in place.
