WWE: Daniel Bryan Should Have Been in the Elimination Chamber Match

For Gail Kim's sake, Daniel Bryan should be able to provide more than a minute of entertainment.

That was the approximate amount of time that R-Truth was given in the Elimination Chamber match last night.

John Cena, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus and John Morrison all did a good job in the match. Each guy, especially Morrison, produced some very highly entertaining spots, and they all worked hard to produce a good match.

That sixth spot should have gone to Bryan.

The United States Heavyweight Champion has lost some momentum since his program with the Miz. Being in a high profile match like the Elimination Chamber would have done wonders for his momentum heading into Wrestlemania.

With Bryan in the match, the backstage agents would have had plenty of options. They could have revisited his program with Sheamus. They also could have teased the Internet wrestling community dream match against Punk like they did at the Royal Rumble.

The Internet wrestling community would also get a kick out of seeing Bryan working a match against Cena again (the two worked a match when Cena was still very new to WWE).

While he did get a meaningless win over Ted DiBiase, it was fairly obvious that Bryan was relegated to dark match status on pay-per-view where he should have been a main event performer.
