However, based on input from Edge the WWE selected Christian instead to be the third member of The Brood and the rest as they say is history. But one can't help but wonder how different Daniels career would've been had he stayed with the WWE and got this main roster spot. Hindsight I think the WWE made the right decision as Edge & Christian had the track record of already established chemistry to build off and they wouldn't have had to start from square one like Daniels & Edge. Now it is very known that The Brood was designed to be a springboard for Edge so I don't know if Daniels would've been given the opportunity to succeed in WWE either way.
Looking the career Daniels has put together for himself though especially his success in the tag team division, I don't think this should be looked at as anything more than another what if situation. The one thing I will point out is that honestly had Daniels remained with WWE I don't think he would've become as big a star in TNA & ROH like he has become. In reality I guess that is the blessing in a sea of "what ifs."
