Bryan is formulaic? So what does that make Cena, Ryback, Punk,Brodus, Del Rio , Ziggler, Sandow, Miz, Mysterio, Sin Cara, Kofi, Truth, Big Show, Mahal,Rhodes???????
If you truly dislike him, you wouldn't even find the energy to post the reasoning behind your hatred. Personally, I can't stand Cena, Ryback, and Boreton. Yet you never see me in the threads devoted to them bc I find them so bland and uninteresting....why would I devote any time to them. I even skip their segments and matches unless they are involved with someone I deem interesting. There is something about Bryan that makes you tickle, otherwise you wouldn't be so fascinated with him.
Yeah...they're all formulaic. Christ, look at Orton, he's so formulaic its insane. Powerslam, draping DDT, RKO...every...damn...match. I find this style to be really debilitating for a guy like Bryan who obviously has the prowess and technical skill to just lay waste to his opponents, but instead he just sticks with his few same moves and does them over and over. I'm much more forgiving for some people like Ziggler because his offense doesn't seem AS formulaic (and because he doesn't use kicks as 90% of his moves, like Bryan does. Seriously, THAT irritates me).
And I don't truly dislike Bryan. I just don't like how he's being used right now because I think it makes him irritating. I can think of a hundred better ways to. I threw in my 2 cents about how I feel, but unlike some who just say "well I hate Bryan, fuck him, he deserves to be midcard" I actually take the time to distinguish myself from a blind hater by saying "I'm not a fan of what he's doing right now, here's why." I do this because I myself respect people who will back up their opinions with facts and well constructed arguments. I can take something thoughtful away from the post-"oh, that's an interesting view he has, I didn't think about it like that." Its the people who drop in, say they hate something or blindly love it, and then give no reason why that bug me. "ZOMG ITS THE BEST EVER, PUSH BRYAN TO THE MOON, HE'S CARRYING THIS COMPANY." Its so asinine, I find.
Bryan has the talent, I won't argue that. Its just this YES/NO thing I've never been a big fan of, and I don't think he's been anywhere near as extraordinary in the anger management thing as others think. The whole thing doesn't really appeal to me. The only moment that I thought was truly great was Kane's recollection of his personal history. Now its always "I'M THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS." I, myself, don't see the appeal.
