WWE Money in the Bank 2011 Results: What Daniel Bryan's Win Means

Money in the Bank was the perfect night for the Internet Wrestling Community.

Christian walked out World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk won his first WWE Championship and Daniel Bryan became SmackDown's Mr. Money in the Bank.

It almost seems as though Vince McMahon and the WWE creative team decided to give Internet fans a night where everything they would have booked happened.

But what exactly does Bryan's Money in the Bank win mean? 

Daniel Bryan is one of the best, if not the best, wrestlers in the world today in terms of sheer in-ring ability. His mic skills are nothing special, and he could also afford to gain some points in the charisma department, but his wrestling ability has taken him very far.

Sometimes he comes out to a dead crowd, but other times he draws a huge pop, indicating that he probably isn't all that over with the non-Internet fans, especially the younger fans, who may not appreciate in-ring ability as much as they love hearing John Cena cut a promo.

WWE clearly has faith in Bryan, as it a) hired him in the first place, b) hired him soon after it fired him and c) booked him to win SmackDown's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

Bryan's win obviously means that within the next year he will get a World Heavyweight Championship Match and with that will be pushed into the main event scene. WWE can really give Internet fans something to cheer about if he cashes in on Christian and starts a feud with him, but any of that can be months away.

What this win means is that WWE is giving Bryan a shot at being a main eventer. There is always the possibility that he ends up like Jack Swagger or Wade Barrett, back in the mid card soon after a short-lived main event run, but if Bryan is able to pull off great matches at pay-per-views, polish up those mic skills and get himself over with the rest of the crowd, he will be a mainstay in the main event scene this time next year.

As always, leave a comment below with your thoughts on Bryan's Money in the Bank win.
