In the opening match of the main card for the WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, Daniel Bryan took on Drew Gulak. In recent weeks, Gulak has been saying that Bryan has needed to fix some weaknesses in his in-ring game. Bryan issued a challenge to face Gulak at the Chamber show in Philadelphia. Click here for backstage news on the real reason why Gulak and Bryan have been working together in recent weeks.
This was a very technical match with Gulak getting in most of the offense for a large chunk of the match. There was one scary looking German suplex from Gulak that saw Bryan landing hard on the back of his head. It’s clear that Bryan was doing everything to make Gulak look like a million bucks. Gulak was very close to winning the match with the dragon sleeper submission but Bryan reversed into the YES lock and the referee ended the match because Gulak passed out.
