#5 Reason why Vince McMahon got angry at Daniel Bryan in WWE
Bryan Danielson has said multiple times that he has a very good equation with Vince McMahon. However, McMahon was always very concerned about Bryan’s health.
The latter revealed during an interview with Sports Illustrated Media Podcast that the WWE Chairman had gotten very upset with him after his match against Drew Gulak in March 2020.
“I was wrestling Drew Gulak at Elimination Chamber right before the pandemic. I took a German suplex that went a little bit wrong and I landed on my head. When I got to the back, Vince was so mad at me and he was like, it wasn’t anything about the performance. After he got mad at me, I said, ‘Was the match okay?’ ‘Yeah, the match was great, but you can’t do that.’ He doesn’t want me to get hurt,” Bryan Danielson said.
He further stated that he understood how Vince’s anger came from a place of love and concern, but it is never good to get your boss upset.

WWE had Lashley, Reigns, and Big E face each other at the weekend shows in North Charleston and Augusta. According to Meltzer, the matches were so good that McMahon decided to have the three men face each other in the RAW main event with Lashley taking the pin.
”So, at noon the day of the show, he did an about-face and moved the six-man tag to basically set up this match as the main event, figuring this would be the strongest ratings possible by putting that match on television. That’s why it wasn’t advertised and that’s why it was a last-minute thing,” stated Meltzer.

While the two men were positioned as one of the most prominent tag teams a few months back, they have become enhancement talents of late – having achieved nothing of significance.
According to the report, Metalik and Dorado have been seen waiting to talk to management at tapings, given their poor booking. It isn’t clear whether or not Dorado has also asked for his release from WWE.

Bray Wyatt was released by WWE in July and is likely headed to AEW soon. Cageside seats have reported that he could be seen in AEW as soon as next week. While his non-compete clause with WWE won’t be over until next month, there is a chance that Wyatt has gotten out of his non-compete ahead of time.
AEW Dynamite and Rampage will be held in Rochester, New York next week, in the hometown of Brodie Lee. The late Brodie Lee was a former teammate of Bray Wyatt in WWE, and speculation suggests the latter could become The Dark Order’s new leader when he debuts.
“Despite it not being 90 days since his WWE release, there is a lot of speculation that Bray Wyatt will debut for AEW next week in Rochester, New York, which is Brodie Lee’s hometown.”
