Daniel Bryan. When he first came to WWE all of the IWC went absolutely nuts over this guy and as I had not watched the ROH or any other kind of Florida, Ohio, or other wrestling circuit. So when I heard and read all of the articles about him being the best and should be given a title right away, I was a little, well to be honest I was, VERY skeptical about this.
After a while I got tired of hearing this and even wrote an article about my top five overrated wrestlers, with him at No.1. As expected, everybody blew up on me, and I didn't really know why.
Now why it took me this long I don't know, but only until last Friday, did I really start looking at his matches on YouTube and looking him up. Man, I felt so stupid for saying all of that stuff.
The guy is good, and although most of the IWC says he is being misused right now, I have to kind of disagree.
While he has not yet had some good matches besides PPV ones, I really don't think there is any reason to fret. Now if he was to be put in PPV matches against William Regal, sorry Shooter lol, then there would be reason to worry.
So far, he has been in the match against the Nexus, an exciting match in which he defeated the Miz for the U.S. belt, beat Morrison and The Miz in a triple threat match for his U.S. belt and I believe that is it. His next upcoming PPV is a Champion vs. Champion match against IC title holder Dolph Ziggler. So far, he is yet to lose a PPV match, and I'm not sure if this is accurate, but I believe he is also yet to lose a match period.
Last Monday, he had an awesome promo in which he completely owned Ziggler and Vikki Guerrero and got to dance with the divas. While his dancing skills are limited, he showed some good mic and wrestling skills during this.
The little things like this that have the IWC up in flames with anger about him being screwed I think is a good thing to do for him. Doing these for a while could improve all of the skills the WWE believes he lacks.
So Bleacher Community, while a month ago you would have to had put a gun to my head to get me to say this, Daniel Bryan WILL have his time to shine and will eventually be a good world champion.
