Told he was just a B player and hardly a main event star, Daniel Bryan defied The Authority and demanded an opportunity to vie for the WWE title at Wrestlemania. After a RAW sit-in with the Yes Movement, The Authority relented and would add Bryan into the Batista vs Randy Orton match provided Bryan defeat Triple H earlier that night.
Bryan defeated the game and in an emotional triple threat, battled the remaining members of Evolution in a grueling encounter that pushed him to his limits. Ultimately, Bryan gained the hard-earned three-count to close the 30th Wrestlemania on one of its most memorable and satisfying victories.
After surviving the Royal Rumble and an unprecedented prove it scenario where he had to battle Daniel Bryan to earn the No. 1 contender status, Roman Reigns was finally ready to conquer the unconquerable Brock Lesnar and leave the new WWE champion. Somehow managing to endure The Beast’s best shots, Reigns summoned the last of his reserves for one final rally. Amazingly, he seemed poised to win the title until Seth Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank and shocked everyone by pinning Reigns to become the new WWE champion.
The Authority finally found a way to wrest the WWE title from Roman Reigns as Triple H won the 1 vs. All Royal Rumble to become the new champion. Reigns once again battled the odds to become the new Number 1 contender. With the world watching, can Reigns master The Game?
