PWW 036 -- What to do with Daniel Bryan?

hosted by Tony Schiavone and Beau Le Blanc

Tony Schiavone and Beau Le Blanc were finally back in the same podcast studio for this week's edition of PWW! They talked about Ronda Rousey's formal introduction into the UFC Hall of Fame and what it means for her WWE career and her current storyline with Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss.

They also discussed Fender "walking with Elias" and giving him a sponsorship deal, as the man has been known to go through a guitar or two. Beau had Tony smarten him up on why WCW was always keen to have sponsor logos on their ring, but WWE has traditionally shyed away from that kind of advertising. Bray Wyatt was at home nursing injuries from a car accident that Tony speculated could've been due to distracted driving which Beau has a new appreciation for, given the new hands-free law Georgia recently enacted.

Beau mentioned Jay Lethal winning the ROH World Title last weekend in Fairfax, VA since he had spoken with Ian Riccaboni about Lethal being ROH's franchise player in an interview last week. 

Tony and Beau ran through the latest on WWE Raw and Smackdown, speculating on the level of Roman Reigns fatigue on the Raw side and whether they're playing Daniel Bryan's return properly now that he's re-teaming with Kane over on Smackdown. Tony Schiavone reasoned that they're holding Daniel Bryan back a little bit on getting into the main event picture due to his history of injuries, but Beau's selfish and wants AJ Styles versus Daniel Bryan now. On next week's episode, they'll break down the full Extreme Rules card, but both are looking forward to the 30 Minute Iron Man match between Dolph Ziggler and Seth Rollins and Rusev challenging AJ Styles for the WWE Championship.
