There’s one man who’s been able to rise above it all on Smackdown. No obstacle could stand in his way. Not a seven foot tall genetic freak. Not the world’s strongest man. Not the Apex Predator. He’s escaped steel cages from giant behemoths. He’s made people realize that sooner or later everyone taps out. He’s managed to squeeze out a victory when no one thought he would be able to. He’s scraped and clawed his way. He claims that he’s a role model because he’s a vegan. He’s had a woman at his side the entire way that he appreciates greatly. He’s dedicated match after match to her. He has his critics. They say that he’s a weasel who doesn’t deserve anything that he has. They aren’t fan of the way he’s managed to win. . They say that he’s no role model. They say he’s no one special. Some would even go so far as to call him a coward. He calls himself the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION and he only has one word for his critics.
He said YES! YES! YES! And I say YES! YES! YES! For over 100 days, Daniel Bryan has been the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION. And I couldn’t be much happier about it. I had my reservations when he first took on the Big Show but since then nearly everything involving Daniel Bryan has been gold. He’s done the best with what he’s been given.
I’m surprised to see the WWE get behind Bryan in the way that they have. They usually cut the legs off of any young up and comer at the exact wrong time. I thought Bryan was finished until Orton was taken out of the Elimination Chamber. And Bryan won. He just keeps on winning.
His dynamic with AJ keeps me interested in Smackdown. It’s different. Bryan was first dedicating his matches to AJ after she was taken out by the Big Show. Then she returned and Bryan showed her his appreciation. Each week, he’s been a jerk to her, but she continues her love. He does buy her dresses and coach her matches. The promos with them have been very entertaining.
Michael Cole has slowly shown some appreciation for Bryan. He used to just run his mouth about how Bryan was a geek. He ran his mouth about Bryan’s veganism, but now even he has to admit that Bryan deserves to be WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! YES! YES! YES! YES!
And the biggest surprise of his title reign has to be his promos. Before Bryan came to the WWE, people said he didn’t stand a chance of going anywhere because he couldn’t talk. But Bryan has proven those people wrong. Very very wrong. (Start at 38:30 for promo)
But of course all good things must come to an end. Bryan has entered a program with Sheamus who is set to become the WWE’s next big thing. WWE has tried time and time again with Sheamus. He’s the Rumble winner. He rarely ever loses. And Bryan pinned him on Monday. Any wrestling fan knows that it’s curtains for Bryan’s championship reign. The Yeses will come to an end. The match will still be good. The Yesman will not disappoint. I can still appreciate all the good times that Bryan has given us. Thank you Daniel Bryan for a World Heavyweight Championship that completely absolutely DOES NOT SUCK!!
