WWE Booking: Why Daniel Bryan Is the Most Original Heel in Years
Ever since he cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Big Show, the WWE Universe has been enamored with Daniel Bryan.
His turn from baby face to heel was done slowly, and he got to a point where he was one of the most hated heels in the company, especially due to his treatment of AJ.
Bryan turned his celebration following his win over Big Show into an entire gimmick, and it has worked beautifully.
The word "yes" may not seem like much of a catchphrase, but not since the word "what" has a one syllable word meant so much to a wrestler.
The "yes" chants, shirts and signs are now commonplace in WWE, and it is all thanks to a guy who no one ever expected to make it to the top of WWE, Bryan Danielson.
Daniel Bryan is undeniably talented, but it is his unexpectedly awesome promos and mic work which have made him into one of the most unique and interesting heels in the industry.
As World Champion, he proved that he could be in a match with someone who eats about Bryan's weight in food each day and not look like the underdog.
When you are as small as Bryan, you tend to get lumped into a group with the likes of Rey Mysterio and Evan Bourne, a group which is always looked at as the underdog.
Bryan used his immense skill as a wrestler to show that little guys don't have to leap off the top rope every few seconds to get the crowd on their feet, although he can leap from the ropes whenever he chooses.
In many ways he is like Dean Malenko, another smaller competitor who shattered preconceptions by being one of the best technicians in the business, but the big difference between the two is Bryan's mic skills.
He started in WWE with little more than a standard promo ability, but once he turned heel, he turned things up a few notches and really took off as a heel the fans actually liked to cheer for.
It is not too often we see someone berate a 95 pound girl only to get one of the biggest pops when he comes out for a match. That indicates that whatever he is doing is working better than expected.
His matches with CM Punk have raised the bar in WWE the same way Randy Savage and Ricky Steamboat did at WrestleMania 3.
The current storyline with AJ, Punk and Bryan has created some of the more entertaining and enthralling moments in WWE over the past several months, and after Monday night when AJ sent both men through a table, I have the feeling that this is just the beginning.
Bryan will get another chance to take the belt from Punk when Money in the Bank rolls around. WWE may end up finally pulling the trigger on making Bryan the top dog in WWE and having him hold the WWE title.
