Shane McMahon & Daniel Bryan put the WrestleMania WWE Championship picture in perspective
INDIANAPOLIS — Last week’s SmackDown LIVE saw a flurry of activity where the WWE Title was concerned. First, AJ Styles won the No. 1 Contender’s Match against Luke Harper to gain entry into the WWE Title Match at The Showcase of the Immortals. Then, Randy Orton burnt down the Wyatt Family Compound and declared he was coming for the head of WWE Champion Bray Wyatt.
Because these two instances stand in direct conflict with one another, Commissioner Shane McMahon and General Manager Daniel Bryan kicked off SmackDown LIVE by explaining their decision to have The Viper take on “The Face that Runs the Place” in tonight’s main event with the winner definitively going on to face The Eater of Worlds for the most prestigious prize in WWE at The Show of Shows.
