The latest rumors indicate that Daniel Bryan could face other superstars in the 205 Live division in the coming weeks. WWE will have had this idea, regardless of what happens on Sunday at TLC, where Daniel Bryan will defend the WWE title against AJ Styles.
This week, Daniel Bryan fought against Mustafa Ali on SmackDown Live, a match that was previously announced on the company’s website and social networks a few hours before the episode began. The WWE champion appeared during the show and was interrupted by Mustafa Ali. Daniel Bryan managed to win by submission via the Yes Lock in what was the first match for Ali on SmackDown.
WWE management will have welcomed the public’s follow-up of this match and will have decided to give new opportunities to the 205 Live superstars. For that reason, a poll has been published asking what fighter, coming from the roster of 205 Live, wants the WWE Universe for Daniel Bryan as the next rival. At the time of this publication, Buddy Murphy wins the poll with 31% of votes in his favor, followed by Cedric Alexander with 23% of the votes, Hideo Itami with 19%, The Brian Kendrick with 13%, Drew Gulak and Jack Gallagher with 5%, and Akira Tozawa with 4%.
The WWE Cruiserweight Championship will also be defended this Sunday, at the WWE TLC to be held from the SAP Center in San Jose, California. Buddy Murphy will defend the belt against Cedric Alexander in what will be the rematch of Super Show-Down.
