He isn't overcoming shitty booking. He's slowly withering away to purposely destructive booking. He's not as over as he used to be, because the fans are slowly catching on not to put faith in the guy, because he's just going to lose. All you have to do is contrast his booking to that of Ryback. Crowd cheers Ryback, Ryback wins. Crowd cheers louder, Ryback wins more. Crowd reacts to Bryan, Bryan loses. Crowd reacts to Bryan more, Bryan loses. Crowd realizes their actions don't matter, Bryan loses. Pavlovian conditioning is already in effect.
