After announcing that he would be entering the 2021 Royal Rumble, Cesaro took to the ring during tonight’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown to take on Daniel Bryan. In a match between two Royal Rumble hopefuls, it was Cesaro who came out on top, getting the better of Bryan late.
Late in the match against Bryan, Cesaro managed to escape a brutal Yes Lock from Bryan by getting to the ropes. Afterwards, Cesaro was able to stop Bryan from getting to the top rope, and landed a huge spinning brainbuster on him off of the top rope. With Bryan down, Cesaro then hit the Neutralizer for the win.
