The WWE Universe's belief in the beard has finally been rewarded, mightily.
The quest for the WWE title ended for Daniel Bryan at Night of Champions, as the skillful and popular hero defeated champion Randy Orton in a somewhat controversial fashion, winning the title that he has been chasing for months.
Between his quest to win the title from John Cena and then Orton, Bryan was able to realize his dream at the pay-per-view with a little bit of help from a slightly fast count on the part of WWE official Scott Armstrong.
Will this lead to a showdown on Raw with the McMahon family, who cannot be happy that their handpicked champion was bested by a competitor they deemed completely unworthy?
Can Bryan be a performer that goes down in history as one of the greatest of all time?
Or will this reign just be another quick and disappointing one for the new champion?
