This has been a rumor since the minute he didn't show up the next night.
He seemed to take charge during the attack, even more so than Barrett.
The controversial firing, was it real, was it not?
Danielson seemed very quiet after his firing. This raised speculation of whether he was attempting to "keep it cool" under these circumstances or a direct order from Vince McMahon—so the entire wreestling community would be in for a surprise when he is announced as the next GM.
He was not one of my original picks, but the more I think about it, the more it is possible. The WWE has been known to fake some things very well in order to push along a story.
It lines up with the attacks on Cena, and McMahon. It would give a large part of the crowd what they wanted, and make him more likely to last in WWE.
He was not only a great technical wrestler, he's make a great GM as well.
