One of the ideas floating around backstage in WWE right now is to have Sheamus making his much anticipated and much promoted return during the Intercontinental Championship ladder match at Wrestlemania. He would initially do so as a baby face before getting the fans to turn on him by costing Daniel Bryan the match. A title feud between the two would then take place for the next month or so.

Reports have surfaced that he was able to convince management that it would be better for everyone is he were to wrestle against Dolph Ziggler at Wrestlemania instead of Sheamus as originally planned. The match could steal the show.

Bryan also revealed that he was initially scheduled to work against Sheamus in the middle of the card.

In a nice little swerve on Monday Night Raw, Daniel Bryan convinced WWE fans that he might be retiring as an in ring performer, thanks in part to a simple social media message, before delightfully surprising the audience with the announcement that he would be making his return at the Royal Rumble.

Considering the stature that he has reached, it is understandable that Chris Jericho has a lot of clout backstage in WWE. He often times gets to choose the opponent that he wants to work with. Bray Wyatt was a handpicked choice. During a recent interview, the former world heavyweight champion listed three more wrestlers that he wants to work with when he makes his next return. Jericho listed Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose as the three.
