Over the past few months, New Day has had a huge spin on the WWE rings, with the duo of Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston first winning the duo titles together and then seeing Woods win the King’s tournament as well. of the Ring, opening a sensational feud with none other than the Tribal Chief of Friday Night Smackdown, Roman Reigns.
If the 2020 and 2021 of Woods and Kingston were great, for Big E, this two-year period has been nothing short of sensational, with the most massive of the trio first winning the Intercontinental title in single, then moving on to Money in the Bank and finally cash the briefcase on Bobby Lashley, graduating for the first time in the history of WWE and his career: WWE Champion.
Was Daniel Bryan ever considered to win the 2021 WWE Royal Rumble? It doesn’t seem like that’s the case. Many fans believed going into this year’s Royal Rumble that Daniel Bryan was in contention to win the big match and would go on to challenge Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 37.
It made sense as Bryan made it a point leading up to the event by saying that winning the Royal Rumble was the one thing in WWE that he hadn’t yet achieved.
Big E on 2022 Royal Rumble
In his latest interview with Barstool’s Rasslin ‘podcast, Big E also wanted to talk about great promises and big plans for 2022, with the classic question that also came to him, namely’ Who will win next year’s Royal Rumble in your opinion?’ To that question, WWE Champion responded quite surprisingly, saying: “Oh, that’s a great question.
I wouldn’t want to come up with pretty obvious answers, like ‘Well he’d be a New Day member, I’d say either Kofi or Woods for sure.’ So, I will tell you someone who is not part of our team. You know what, let’s give it a chance – Cesaro should win the Royal Rumble.
Dude, Cesaro is damn good at everything he does in the ring. I would like to see Cesaro in flames once again.” Even for the Swiss WWE athlete, (just like for Big E until last year), the big leap in quality is still missing, with WWE never giving him a great opportunity, neither the victory of the Rumble, nor the victory of the Money in the Bank, with the Chairman of the federation who has always considered him a great worker, but who never pushed him to the top of the company, always leaving him in mid-carding.
