- AJ Styles missed another WWE live event due to the flu this week as he was replaced by John Cena at Friday's live event in Baltimore, Maryland. Cena lost to WWE Champion Daniel Bryan in a Steel Cage match. There's no word yet on when Styles will be back in action. Below is video of Bryan cutting a promo before the Steel Cage match, declaring himself The Planet's Champion instead of The People's Champion.
"You people used to revere the old Daniel Bryan," Bryan said. "You used to love the old Daniel Bryan but the old Daniel Bryan is dead. Shut up! I did not give you permission to say 'Yes!'"
Bryan continued, "I am not here to please you people. I am no longer The People's Champion, I am The Planet's Champion. I'm out here to defend the planet from you idiots, every single night, and I don't care if it's AJ Styles, I don't care if it's John Cena. Tonight, I am going to prove why I am The Planet's Champion."
