What the hell is Daniel Bryan talking about?

Daniel Bryan & Rowan lost the SmackDown tag team titles to The New Day at Extreme Rules in Philadelphia. They did so without reaching any of Bryan’s goals of elevating the tag team division all the way to the main event of WrestleMania.

After, he took note of that in yet another amazing promo that teased something much bigger:

“I had this dream. I had this dream that I was going to elevate the tag team division, the entire tag team division. And look what happened! I failed! I followed the dream. I followed the dream and I tried to take all these jokers, all these people swiveling their hips, I tried to take them to the main event, I tried to take them to the main event of WrestleMania, and I failed!

”But you know what? I don’t... I don’t think that it was me that failed. I think in pursuing this excellence they brought me down to mediocrity. I was trying to elevate the tag team division but they are un-elevatable. Do you hear that? Un-elevatable! If I want to change the planet, if I want to save the planet, I have to aim higher. I have to aim higher. I have to go where Daniel Bryan has not gone before. I know exactly what I have to do.”

I have no idea what any of that means, but I’m definitely sticking around to find out.
