Bryan with full creative control

Codependent Poster
Oct 20, 2003



The whole Team Hell No reunion thing has been so different from most of WWE's recent stuff in that it's letting talent show actual goofy personality that I wouldn't be surprised if Bryan does have a lot of creative control now.

Like Bryan making Kane's pyro go off is so fun that it's a complete reversal of most of what they've been doing outside of Woken Matt Hardy

Yeah, the card for that Detroit show was already posted on the arena website. Given its subject to change (and I fully expect it to), but there are two main events advertised for it. I'd lean towards the six man tag being the dark main though (which they do after 205 Live to keep people from leaving early).

- AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, and Jeff Hardy vs Samoa Joe, The Miz, and Shinsuke Nakamura

- Asuka vs Carmella for the Smackdown Women's Championship

Because Bryan wants to kill himself in the ring, whereas Rey just wants to kill other people?

it's been reported that while Bryan wants to wrestle he doesn't want to do a full schedule. He wants to be at home more and also probably doesn't want injuries to come back. I think Dave has reported he's looking at around 150 dates.

El Gallinero Gros posted:

And risk Bryan really going to Indy's and New Japan? Bryan's probably not gonna demand top dollar and not demand titles. Plus the company does actually like him so I can see them giving him reduced days especially since it can use the injury side as a reason why he gets them and other talent doesn't.

Good lord even 150 is barely a "reduced schedule". That's enough for every Smackdown or Raw and every PPV and still another 85ish dates for house shows and special events on top of that. That's hardly an unreasonable ask.

There's probably ways to sent that poo poo straight into spreadsheets so you don't have to add it up, have a program do it for you. But yes please, I enjoyed the guessing game - largely because it shows how unpredictable wrestling is.

He's also supposedly asking for creative control and has been publicly making GBS threads on the company's ability to book him competently. There's no guarantee that's not gonna rankle some folks.

I'm not too surprised, I saw a clip a few years ago where they did a Hart Foundation reunion for that promotion that was running in ballparks only, and the whole promo, Jim was shaking in a way that sorta reminded me of Parkinson's. I know they're not the same thing but they do both have shaking as symptoms. Sad, though, I loved the Foundation as a kid.
