WWE is gearing for their first pay-per-view of 2021, Royal Rumble. The storylines have already started building up to the mega event. But, the PPV is popular for their iconic Royal Rumble matches. Every year 30 WWE superstars participate in the men’s Royal Rumble match.

Wrestlers from the current roster are joined by some surprise appearances. On the latest episode of Smackdown, Daniel Bryan has announced that he will be entering the Royal Rumble match. This makes him the first confirmed WWE superstar who will be participating in the match.  

Bryan emerged victorious against Jey Uso in the Christmas special episode of the Blue brand. During a post-match interview he mentioned that winning the Royal Rumble is the next big thing that he wants to achieve in his career.

Daniel Bryan’s 10-year long career is filled with several accomplishments. But the one thing that still eludes him is a win in a Royal Rumble match. In fact, in 2015 Bryan was expected to win the Rumble. But to the shock of the WWE Universe, Bryan was eliminated within a couple of minutes.

The winner of Royal Rumble earns the right of being a challenger for any WWE title that they desire. In the previous Royal Rumble, Drew McIntyre and Charlotte Flair emerged victorious in their respective Royal Rumble matches.

Both the superstars successfully capitalized on their opportunity and became Champions. While, McIntyre became the WWE Champion, Flair earned the NXT Women’s Championship. While it is too early to speculate on the upcoming Rumble, but WWE Universe would surely love Bryan as a Champion again.
