Daniel Bryan deserves a title run with the WWE Championship.

What else can be said about this WWE Superstar? Bryan has been on a roll as of late since losing the WWE Tag Team titles to The Shield at Extreme Rules.

Since then, he made Seth Rollins tap out in a six-man tag with himself, Kane and Randy Orton. They handed The Shield their first loss as a group on the SmackDown before Payback.

During that period, Bryan claimed everyone called him the weak link of his partnership with Kane. He’s used that momentum to display some of his best work in his WWE career, and the fans have taken notice. Bryan gets one of the best reactions among the active roster.

Even WWE officials have taken notice. Numerous reports stated Bryan is being pushed throughout this summer. F4WOnline.com (via Wrestlezone) reported Bryan was originally supposed to face Cena at Money in the Bank and SummerSlam. Now those reports state Bryan is scheduled to face Cena at SummerSlam.

If the reports hold true, expect Bryan to not only face Cena for the WWE title but to also win it from Cena. Why shouldn’t he?

When SummerSlam rolls around, Cena will have held the title for five months (if he retains against Mark Henry at Money In The Bank). It would be an adequate reign for the WWE’s face of the company. If the WWE wants to build new faces for the company, look no further than Daniel Bryan.

The crowd loves him for his wrestling style and ability to excite them. He brings the crowd to his feet with a dazzling mix of high-flying moves and submission wrestling. He entertained them with Kane as one half of the tag team champions.

Bryan solidified his case further by putting on a classic with Randy Orton. He defeated Orton in a physical contest worthy of a pay-per-view encounter.

Daniel Bryan may not be the wrestler WWE wants, but he’s exactly what they need. He’s not the big man who can hold millions at the palm of his hand. He doesn’t need to be, but truth be told, he wants it. How else would you explain his backstage argument with Triple H after his match was cut short against Randy Orton on the June 17 edition of Raw?

Daniel Bryan deserves a WWE title run. It’s time for the WWE to reward Bryan for his hard work because there needs to be a payoff. Make it happen, WWE!
