36 hours after the Royal Rumble match, fans are still furious as to why Daniel Bryan was not added into the match. PWInsider.com is reporting that there was never a thought in the mind of WWE officials to add Bryan into the match.
Furthermore, Xavier Woods and Bad News Barrett were replaced the day of the event by JBL and El Torito.
The head agent of the match is Jamie Noble, who may be taking some blame for the lack of interesting spots. Other than Kofi Kingston, who always seems to have a big highlight in the match, backstage officials are saying that there was nothing memorable. A major reason to potentially look at is that WWE officials did not start mapping out the plan for the match until 6pm, which was only a few hours before the show went live from Pittsburgh.
