I will use a tried and tested excuse but it is true..... Blame creative. If d-bry had his choice he would not be doing this sh*t but he got over on his own... HOW DARE HE. Now he is a joke and even though he is THE tag team champions he is a joke figure, his moves in the ring have been reduced to just kicking and he is jobbing just as much if not MORE than ziggles. D-Bry deserves soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much more than to be a santino type novelty act

If the acting isn't cheesy and over-the-top, then there's a problem.

Wrestling's supposed to be stupid and ridiculous. That's what they are missing today. Guys like Zigglar have gimmicks that can be exeragerated and played off of more, but they prefer him to be generic heel #1693.

We used to have Mr.Ass. Now we have "Michael Mcgillicutty".

Bryan enjoys this gimmick himself...which is why it has been so great because he likes to do it and puts effort into it.

As much as I'm entertained by the angle, it's not enough to justify watching 3 hours of tv every week. It's got to the stage where I can't even be bothered to download Raw now.

He's a pretty terrible actor to be fair lol. It always looks like he's trying not to laugh or break out in a smile during his segments. Having said that though, he's just about the only guy I can let something like this fly with. When he stomped down the hall on Raw like that it made me laugh lol. I actually think it suits him tbh. Now, if it were a serious promo where he needed to sell something properly, then yeah, it would become a problem. But for these types of skits I think it's adds to them. I like it.

Yep, his acting has been horrible lately, I don't know what happened. Maybe he thinks that it's funnier that way.
I still like him, but it looks like he's overreacting and too childish.

It's camp. Grandiosity and fantastical probably aren't the most applicable terms in this particular case with Bryan's tag team-based comedy role (even though there are elements of that you mentioned, of course, as that's the business by its very nature). Those words would better be utilised when talking about a main eventer or main even segment that is meant to have a more serious catch. This is more a case of goofy shenanigans and being generally light-hearted for the moment.

Also keep in mind that Bryan is still an abrasive, hot-headed, geekish weasel, although he's lost that entirely-heelish demeanour. He isn't very likeable for most casuals outside of poking the preverbal ants nest and watching him explode.

I have hated this tag team with Kane since its second day. They completely jumped the shark when they had Kane explain his life's story. After that, it was pretty evident they'd never top that. Didn't expect things to get THIS bad, though. My God, they've been fighting over who the SINGULAR TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS are for almost 2 months. At first it was like "ah, I get it. They never get along." The second time the joke began to wear extremely thing. Now, we're at about 8 weeks of this shit. It was never funny, and stopped being tolerable the second day they did it.
When you say they jumped the shark I'm guessing you think they undermined the integrity of the business by doing such. Perhaps they did momentarily do so by definition, but why is it a bad thing in this case of comedic value? It's just a character in a self-aware comedy role that's to the stylings of many things done in the past, like those Austin Power movies. A little sad I actually remember those movies, but whatevs).

This isn't a bad case of anything in particular (except perhaps comedy in many people's eyes), but things that were bad included those infamous Million Dollar Mania giveaways. That was a terrible instance of abandoning company values for profit. I'm sure you're aware that company has rarely been fixated with logic in the past and certainly won't do so in the future with things like Kane's character consistency.

Quote:
But of course, Bryan marks refuse to see it for how bad it really is. If Santino were doing this, Wrestling Forum would have unanimously declared this the worst gimmick of the year weeks ago. Its only because Bryan is involved that they become willfully blind-if goat face is involved, it must be good! Wrong. Bad is bad.
Santino's schtick is widely panned because it's been done to death. Most people will turn on Bryan as well if he's going to run with this thing for three or four years (which may indeed happen judging by its current popularity).

Despite my willingness to remain impartial, it may come as a surprise when I say I don't care for Bryan's current character or this tag team, outside of the company revitalising another division for those that are interested. However, I don't know what you hope to achieve when you say something like "this is bad because it's bad." You can't be impartial on that stuff because that's indisputably playing up to many people's tastes such as yours. Why is it bad and based on what? What do you consider 'good' in today's WWE?

also lol people. His acting isn't horrible, his goofy acting is the whole point of his gimmick.

Aside wrestling skills, I'm quite sure that the over-the-top acting + little smirking is THE reason why Daniel Bryan is so over. Maybe that's "bad acting" to someone who don't like his character. To me it just gives a feeling that Danielson is a great guy who is enjoying what he is doing and is not scared to make fun with his character.

It's not like Bryan can't ever again be booked as a more serious fellow since he is doing comedy now. If this happens, we will then see how good he fits to that role.

I, for one, have high hopes. Danielson seems to be humble guy but also a veteran in business with certain aura of self-conficence.
