Stephanie McMahon tells Daniel Bryan that the reason they didn’t put Daniel Bryan in the Royal Rumble was because he went through a lot recently, and they didn’t want to risk further injury to him by having him compete twice the Royal Rumble.

Triple H responds to this by saying they realized they stacked the deck against Bryan before, so they didn’t want to do it again at the Rumble.
