It was noted a few weeks ago in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Roman Reigns’ next likely opponent will be Daniel Bryan. Bryan beat Jey Uso last night on SmackDown and Talking Smack, he hinted he’s not done with Jey Uso, but he also hinted Roman Reigns will be next after he’s done. with Uso.
Bryan said everyone was proud of Jey Uso when he hosted the Clash of Champions and the Hell in a Cell Main Event, but things changed because he stopped treating people with respect. Paul Heyman was there as Bryan addressed Uso’s new attitude.
“I’m going to say this about Paul,” Bryan said. “We all know Paul is dishonest like I said and a liar and he has a great reputation in the business, but despite all these things he’s also a genius and since I was a kid I’ve seen this man make people better. He was proud of it. He would go into the ring and you would see him next to Brock Lesnar and you would see him strong and proud and you could tell he knew he was a genius and he knew he was the best at what it was. Except for the moment he doesn’t have the same kind of confidence and it almost seems like he’s walking with his head down and it almost looks like Jey has a little self-esteem issue and is trying to find solutions. . “
Bryan then hinted that Uso’s problem was Reigns and not Heyman: “What I once thought might be Paul’s problem could be someone else’s. But that’s not what I’m here to talk about. Last night on SmackDown, I beat Jey Uso with a little bundle.
Bryan said he was not happy to win with a small package. He said, “I’m not happy with this. I said on SmackDown that there was a devil on my shoulder and that devil speaks so loud and so clearly and that’s what he reminds me of every day. Today is my wife’s birthday and my wife had to watch our two children when I could barely move. She must have watched my daughter cry while I was in the hospital. She had to take care of our baby on sleepless nights and all this stuff goes through my head and this devil speaks so loud and so clearly. Since Paul isn’t speaking, do you think I’m happy to beat Jey Uso with a little bundle? I am not a lawyer, I am not someone who will give you definitive answers. I’ll let you answer this question for yourself.
So based on what has been said on Talking Smack, it looks like we might see Bryan vs. Uso once again before Bryan moves on to a feud with Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
