Daniel Bryan is the new WWE World Heavyweight champion, and it seems as if the WWE Universe could not possibly be any happier about that fact.
However, it seems like this will not be a blissful or easy reign for the champion as there is no shortage of possible opponents for him.
At the moment, three men have stepped to the forefront. Randy Orton, Batista and Triple H are all legitimate threats to Bryan’s titles and could strike at a moment’s notice.
And in keeping with the incredibly difficult circumstances that have come along with opposing The Authority, Bryan may soon find himself squaring off against one, two or even all three of these men at the same time. And though stacked odds have never truly derailed the leader of the Yes Movement thus far, there is always a first time for everything.
And while it seems as if The Authority will do absolutely anything to ensure that Bryan’s reign as WWE World Heavyweight champion is brief, the group's current problems with the Shield led to “The Hounds of Justice” standing strong with the new champion at the end of Raw.
The numbers game has always been an important part of what Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are all about.
And if they are not able to use stacked odds in their favor, they have always relied upon other simple intimidation tactics.
But how do they expect to gain an advantage over a united front that equals their numbers and has no fear of them?
