WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley posted the following on Facebook and Twitter respectively:
"But I think WWE needs to accept (PLEASE listen to me here, any WWE writer, exec, or power in charge) that the ability to turn the tide hinges on finding a way to make Daniel Bryan part of that main event. For me, personally, as a wrestler, a good feud was just as important as a title shot. But the WWE Universe has been on a personal journey with Daniel Bryan, and from the 1,000's of messages I've read, not a single member of that Universe will feel that their journey is complete without Daniel getting a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania. PLEASE forget about the idea of Daniel Bryan vs Triple H, or Daniel Bryan vs Kane at Mania. They are both potentially great match-ups at a later time - but not for Mania. There are times when you really do need to give the people what they want...and this is one of them."
"So @WWEDanielBryan is really out of the #Wrestlemania main event. Glad I turned down #RAW pre-show invite - wouldn't want to cry in public."
"Quite simply, I have never seen anything quite like the current response to @DaveBautista on #Raw."
