Speculation about Bryan vs. Styles; Royal Rumble tickets Submitted by Aaron Rift on 10/10/2018 at 01:04 PM
- During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, Bully Ray commented on why WWE is doing AJ Styles vs. Daniel Bryan at WWE Crown Jewel:
“Remember when Rusev was supposed to wrestle The Undertaker [at Greatest Royal Rumble] and then Rusev got taken out of the match? Then it was going to be Jericho vs. Undertaker, and then Rusev was back in the match. You know why that happened? Because the Prince wanted Rusev in the match.”
“He was adamant, he was a Rusev fan. He said, ‘no I want Rusev vs. Undertaker.’ So, maybe he wants AJ vs. Daniel Bryan. When you’re dealing with a bought show in wrestling, you’re purchasing the show.”
“Hypothetically, [the Prince] said ‘This is the match I want’ and Vince is going to accommodate him because it’s an ungodly amount of money. So you give them the show that they want to see, you wrap it around a network special and you turn it into something. And that’s what it really is.”
