That and he wrestles for like 4 months or more with a separated shoulder or some form of shoulder injury IIRC, sadly it meant he had to become more of a champion who didn't lose rather than a Joe like champion who beat everyone and a few matches needlessly went longer than they needed to to cover up the limitations of Danielson which were well known to fans.
Its either that cocky asshole character or his killer badass one from around 2007 through to the Morishima feud which is my favourite from Danielson. He still holds the record unless Nigel bested him with 38 title defences which is fucking remarkable in this day and age.
Also I remember going ballistic when Gibson pinned Punk at whatever event it was to become Champion, such a shame he left like a month or so later.
