Daniel Bryan's Wrestlemania Dream Is Over: See How Star Was Eliminated From Royal Rumble 2015
Fans were left bitterly disappointed as bearded wonder took early bath from Wrestlemania main event qualifier...
Daniel Bryan's dream of challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight championship at Wrestlemania was dashed after the bearded superstar was eliminated from last night's Royal Rumble match.
The live crowd at Philadelphia's Fargo Wells Center were left bitterly disappointed, too - booing Bryan's exit after only ten minutes.
The 33-year-old was smashed off the ring apron to the ringside floor by Bray Wyatt as Bryan fought off an attack from Rusev.
Earlier this week, the super-popular star told The Sun taking on WWE World Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in the main event of Wrestlemania was his 'dream match'.
Bryan, who was the tenth entrant into the Rumble match, eliminated only one other competitor himself - Tyson Kidd.
Second favourite - behind eventual winner Roman Reigns - with the bookies to triumph in the battle royale until only hours before the show when The Rock's odds plummeted, Bryan's name could be heard being chanted by frustrated fans for the remainder of the match.
