Bryan’s title victory and original match-up are cut from NBC’s Wrestlemania special. The special is cut from the original three hour format to one hour. The cut is made due to Bryan’s injury leaving him off WWE television for the time being.
The NBC special isn’t for the hardcore WWE fans who already paid WWE to see it. The special is to draw in new viewers or viewers once lost. It makes no sense to showcase a guy who they might get interested in, but then turn on Monday Night RAW and can’t see.
