Former WWE creative team member Brian Maxwell Mann noted on twitter that Daniel Bryan was supposed to come out as gay back in 2010. According to Mann, the USA Network wanted WWE to introduce a positive gay character. The whole Bella Twins angle with Daniel Bryan triangle was supposed to lead to Bryan coming out as gay.
That explains why the storyline fell apart at the end. For those that might not remember, the storyline was that the Bella Twins would hit on Bryan each week but he didn’t seem to like them that way. The whole thing ended with Bryan revealing that he was dating Gail Kim for 6 months and that he was a vegan.
FUN FACT: In 2010, USA wanted WWE to introduce a positive gay character. The Bryan/Bellas triangle was supposed to lead to DB coming out.
