5. Daniel Bryan
Why it works: It’s Daniel f’n Bryan. The casual fans love him. The smart marks love him. The boys love him. Everyone is happy to see D-Bry as THE GUY, so if he’s healthy, you may as well let him be THE GUY.
Why it (probably) won’t happen: He’s dead, right? In Kayfabe, I mean… he’s broken forever. Rollins will likely return and regain the title before we see Bryan wrestle in a WWE ring again.
