Bray Wyatt has sent a warning to Daniel Bryan ahead of their rematch.
Bryan beat The Miz and Baron Corbin in a Triple Threat #1 Contender’s Match on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown in Detroit, Michigan at Little Caesars Arena on FOX.
With this win, Bryan will challenge Wyatt for the WWE Universal Championship at the upcoming Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. This is a rematch from Survivor Series where Wyatt beat Bryan.
Wyatt took to his personal Instagram account to send a statement brought up their history including their match in 2014 at the Royal Rumble.
“In 2014 I had one of my favorite bouts of my career against Daniel Bryan at The Royal Rumble. Bryan was red hot, it was his time. He went on to main event WrestleMania and become the champ. Deservedly so, Bryan is without a doubt the best I’ve ever been in the ring with. Fast forward to 2020…… The Fiend vs Daniel Bryan at The Royal Rumble. Bryan is like myself in the fact that no one said, “This is a guy we should build our companies future around!”, the first time we walked in the door.
WE had to scratch and claw, outwork, out talk, out perform everyone on the pedestal in front of us. Daniel Bryan is one of the greatest of all time. But this is not his time, it’s mine. This is when my name becomes synonymous with the industry I have given my life to. I want to thank you Bryan for the blood we’ve spilled together over the years. But understand, for me, this is my war worth dying for. The choice isn’t mine to make. Good luck.”
WWE holds the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event on Sunday, January 26, 2020 Houston, Texas at the Minute Maid Park and airs on the WWE Network.
