Re: Is Bryan the best wrestler at working the crowd since the Rock?
D Bryan is VERY good at what he does with the crowd, however Rock is otherwordly great in that aspect and I don't know if anybody can reduplicate that, he's the undisputed Nr.1 guy in wrestling history when it comes to getting the live audience going. At certain times during his promos it sounds as if the Rock has actual conversations with the crowd, they start chanting responses or saying anything at the palm of his hand that he wants them to say, it goes way beyond just simple catchphrases such as "yes" "no" or "...and millions" etc.
Back on topic, I do think he may be one of the top guys of this era when it comes to crowd involvement, if not the best. He gets good pops regularily and as I mentioned, has the ability to get the fans to respond to him the way he wants. Apart from that, ever since he teamed with Kane, despite them beeing two heels beeing aligned together the fans still boo the face tag teams they are facing and cheer Team Friendship simply because of the personality they show during their skits.
