This match was important for both of them.

Daniel Bryan wanted to win so he can get another chance to win the Universal Championship. The last time he had this chance was at Elimination Chamber 2021. Unfortunately, following the chamber match, Bryan was in no condition to fight Roman Reigns.

On the other hand, Jey Uso was fighting for his family, for the Reigns’ family, and his livelihood, considering most of it depends on Reigns. If he let Daniel Bryan win, he would have to face Roman Reigns’ wrath before anything else.

The match between Jey Uso and Daniel Bryan
