As much as I'd like to put Daniel Bryan higher on the list for his amazing run in WWE thus far, it's too hard to rank him higher based on the limited time we've had to see him excel in the main event picture.
So far, he's done an excellent job remaining relevant for the title, with World or WWE title matches on every PPV since he's won the title.
The actual cash-in hurt a bit, because it made Big Show look like a transitional champion.
Bryan didn't even have to do anything to Show to pin him and win the World Heavyweight Championship.
I think Show deserved better, but Bryan deserved the title just as well.
Bryan waited for so long to get his chance in WWE, and he clawed his way up to be the first NXT rookie to win a World Championship.
The worst part is that although the reign lasted 105 days, it was ended in just 18 seconds at WrestleMania 28.
Again, Bryan (and Sheamus) deserved better than 18 seconds to put on a show—especially after getting snubbed from the PPV and put as a dark match at WrestleMania 27.
