In what promises to be another classic title fight at Royal Rumble, WWE Champion “The New” Daniel Bryan will once again go to war with a determined AJ Styles, who is laser-focused on reclaiming his title.

The situation seemed simple enough on SmackDown LIVE back in November when the two  highly-competitive Superstars looked to settle their issues with an impromptu WWE Championship Match just five days before Survivor Series, but The Beard threw the mother of all curveballs in the title bout.

When the referee wasn’t looking, WWE’s celebrated “Yes!” Man suddenly did the unthinkable by completely foregoing good sportsmanship and ruthlessly kicking Styles below the belt to seize the gold.

AJ Styles vs. Daniel Bryan - Campeonato WWE: SmackDown LIVE, Nov. 13, 2018

La Barba intenta acabar con el reinado de 371 de AJ Styles como Campeón WWE.

In the wake of his brutal subsequent match against Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at WWE’s Fall Classic, Bryan returned to the blue brand, casting off the WWE Universe and claiming that “The Old” Daniel Bryan” and The “Yes!” Movement were dead. The new WWE Champion also vowed that “The New” Daniel Bryan would never again give up on his dreams like he did when he announced his retirement.

Although Styles fell short in their rematch at WWE TLC, The Phenomenal One indeed showed why SmackDown LIVE is “The House that AJ Styles Built” by winning an explosive Fatal 5-Way Match on the New Year’s Day edition of the blue brand to earn the right to once again challenge Bryan at Royal Rumble.

Will Styles finally get retribution on Bryan? Or will his chances at reclaiming the WWE Title prove fickle? Find out at Royal Rumble on Sunday, Jan. 27, streaming live at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.
