DAN-IEL BRY-AN! DAN-IEL BRY-AN! DAN-IEL BRY-AN!
Yes, the most over in-arena wrestler in the entire industry was felled by demonic cult leader Bray Wyatt tonight (Sun., Jan. 26, 2014) at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV) at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Despite Bryan saying he wanted the match at this event because it meant he would get Bray alone, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper came out alongside their leader. They were tossed shortly into the match but it's the little things, folks.
The psychology of the match centered around Bray working Bryan over with an emphasis on focusing on the "apparent" concussion Bryan suffered two weeks ago on Monday Night Raw. Wyatt got in a ton of offense, and did all his signature spots. Because they were given a ton of time -- over 20 minutes, actually -- Bryan got his spots in too, including a sick DDT off the apron.
Ultimately, Wyatt bit his way out of the YES! Lock and they went into a spot that saw Bray reverse a suicide dive into Sister Abigail into the ringside barricade.
That was what got the pinfall.
