WWE Wrestlemania 2017 news: Speculations surface regarding Smackdown Women's Championship contenders; Daniel Bryan's to return?
Several names have recently surfaced regarding who will be contending for the championship title for Raw's Women's Division.
Alexa Bliss is rumored to be the top choice for the title. However, Becky Lynch and Natalya are also tough contenders for the title. Eva Marie, Sasha Banks, and Charlotte Flair are also in the running. Some are also hoping that Naomi will be returning to compete for the title.
Rumors are circulating the possibility that the Women's Division Championship may find all women in the ring at the same time, although this detail is not yet confirmed.
Nikki Bella, however, may not be in the running for the title. She and rumored boyfriend John Cena are set to have matches for the Tag Team Championship with two pairings: Ellsworth and Carmella, and The Miz and Maryse.
Meanwhile, Roman Reigns is expected to have a fight with The Undertaker, although the former is rumored to not have the heel turn that fans are expecting, staying as a babyface for the meantime.
Daniel Bryan also recently dropped a hint that his retirement is not his own choice. When The Miz mocked him on Talking Smack about his absence from the ring, he was quoted in saying "I can't or they won't let me? We'll see in a year-and-a-half, we'll see what happens," possibly hinting at his return to wrestling.
Bryan, whose last match was in April 2015, was pulled from the lineup when he experienced multiple concussions and a brain lesion. However, Wrestling Inc. reported that the fighter is training once again so that he can get back in the ring. In an interview on ESPN SportsCenter, he said that he was given clearance by concussion specialists, but he was flagged for one test, the validity of which he questioned, saying that he already "felt great."
