Danielson was close to be offered a deal with WWE two years ago, but Vince McMahon and Johnny Ace put up a 6-2 height requirement and the deal was off the table. The height requirement doesn’t exist anymore as WWE has since signed wrestlers shorter than that height, Matt Sydal being a prime example as he is 5-7. However, one inside source expressed concern that the creative team wouldn’t know how to use him the best of his advantage. “He’s a hell of a mechanic and he would have gotten over fine,” one WWE source said. “I’m not sure in today’s environment.” On another note, William Regal has been high on Danielson and other ROH wrestlers for quite some time. “If Regal had any stroke, Bryan Danielson and a lot of guys would have been signed a while ago,” one WWE source said. “He’s a good mentor, though. He gives golden advice.”
