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.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?
