Daniel Bryan is a man of action. One week ago WWE United States champion Dolph Ziggler walked out on the blue brand and left his belt in the ring.
To solve his occupancy issue, Bryan opened tonight’s (Dec. 26) SmackDown with a huge news. With Ziggler not answering any of Byran’s phone calls or text messages over the past seven days, the US title has been ruled vacant.
Fear not, Daniel Bryan realizes most pro wrestling problems can be solved with a handy dandy tournament bracket. Bryan would go on to announce in order to crown the next US champion a tournament will be held.
