Former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan reportedly had an angry confrontation with Triple H backstage in Gorilla position after The Game canceled a match mid-way. According to Mike Chioda, WWE decided to cancel the match after Bryan sustained an injury.
Daniel Bryan had a few feuds with Randy Orton between 2013 and 2015, which included that epic night at WrestleMania XXX, where Bryan defeated Orton and Batista to win the World Heavyweight Championship.
While speaking to WrestleZone, former WWE referee Mike Chioda delved into an incident that happened backstage following a match. He said that Daniel Bryan stormed out after a confrontation with Triple H at Gorilla position.
“The confrontation I remember, he got in with Triple H at the Gorilla position. Daniel Bryan got hurt and they made me call the match. I kept asking Daniel, I said, ‘Daniel, you okay, brother? You okay?’ ‘I’m good, Chioda. I can finish, I can finish.’ I said, ‘You sure?’ I say, ‘He’s alright,’ but they canceled the match when it came from up in Gorilla and I remembered he stormed out so hot.”
Chioda said that this match was to be between Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton in 2015 and that Bryan was to win the match.
