Daniel Bryan Being Phased Out Of Main Events, Ricardo Rodriguez Returning, Cruiserweights
– Even though he is not currently being utilized on WWE television, Ricardo Rodriguez is headed to the UK for next week’s tapings. Vickie Guerrero isn’t working this weekend’s live events but is flying into the UK for next week’s TV tapings.
– WWE still has plans to use some of their smaller wrestlers on a cruiserweight type show when the WWE Network launches.
– With WWE Chairman Vince McMahon recently blaming the “attractions” at SummerSlam being responsible for the show drawing a disappointing buyrate, a good part of that blame is going on Daniel Bryan. As we’re already seeing with the Big Show vs. Randy Orton Survivor Series main event, the feeling is that Daniel Bryan is too small and too “average” – so there’s a push to feature WWE’s larger-than-life characters at the top of the card.
