– Former WWE writer Kevin Erck published a new blog entry where he revealed the original plans for the Daniel Bryan’s first World Title win.
In the piece, Erck explains how Bryan’s win was a fluke and was not planned ahead of time. Basically, Mark Henry was supposed to have the title, however he got injured so they called Bryan on the day of the show and told him that they were going to put the title on him. Bryan wasn’t even booked to be on the show at first and was doing an autograph session that day. Luckily, his autograph session was close to where they were running a show.
