After the smoke cleared in the Smackdown Money In The Bank match the wrestling world was shocked to see the winner was Daniel Bryan. Billed as an "internet darling" his win did make fans think that maybe the WWF (putting the F back in Wrestling) was going in a different direction. At least the direction of body builder types getting pushed despite their lack of in ring ability. Then on the Smackdown following the PPV, Bryan announced that he would cash in his MITB briefcase at the biggest WWF event of the year Wrestlemania. The idea of Daniel Bryan being on one of the main event matches at mania was a welcomed idea to a lot of wrestling fans.
What has happened to Bryan is probably the worst treatment of a supposedly top tier contender ever. There is no reason to believe that he will be a viable to challenger that will cash in his contract at Wrestlemania. Bryan has been a horrible losing run getting beat mid card players who will not be in the main event anytime soon. Not only that he has not really been on TV for any matches of consequence. His last win over Trent Barreta on Superstars could not even be seen on television in the United States and not on the US WWE website. He actually had to tweet the link out himself so people could see it.
Now don't get me wrong the creative team could spin this and he could go on a massive win streak. Right now that is hard to imagine. It seems like now he may get the Mr. Kennedy treatment and another wrestler will challenge him for the briefcase and take it. Or what I fear the WWF may do is just forget that he has ever won the Money In The Bank briefcase. Literally not acknowledge that his win has ever happened. It may sound crazy but continuity in storylines has not been a strong point for a lot wrestling companies lately and especially the WWF. Fans for the most part are kind of out of sight, out of mind and the company does not really care too much what fans post on blogs and social media anyway. Right now we will just have to see how it all plays out.
