I don't care about his overacting. Wrestling at its core demands a certain amount of overacting, like when Ziggler sells a toss from Tensai like he's dead. I get that and am fine with it.

Bryan overacting isn't the issue-its the fact that he comes off as an incredibly obnoxious goblin of a man who is relegated to using the worst catchphrases and is stuck in the stupidest, most nonsensical gimmick and team in years. This is partly his acting and partly the shit he's stuck doing. Worst of all, this is supposed to be perceived as comedy.

This, for me, is what Bryan's attempt at 'comedy' is like:



Except it spans his entire screen time. Its terrible, unfunny, and insultingly stupid.

No offense, but even the biggest superstars have arguably just as dumb catchphrases. If you think that's even a problem, I don't even know what else to say. His 'catchphrase' saved his career in WWE. It literally did.

I agree, some superstars have incredibly stupid catchphrases (never got You Can't See Me, for example).

The catchphrase itself is very stupid. There's no substance behind it. Its YES or NO. What does it mean? Nothing. Its just a word, and a very nondescript word at that. Doesn't relate to his character, or push a gimmick, its just...there. Therefore, I'm not a fan. I wasn't even a big fan of What either. Didn't see the point to it.

On top of that, I don't have much respect for it. Its mind numbingly easy and there's no originality or creativity in it. Anybody, literally anybody, could make it work. Fuck, look at AJ...she even leeches off of it. Not everyone can go out there and call themselves the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla and make it work. Jericho can, which is why its unique. He can do something not everyone else can do, and the phrase itself is unique. That's why its awesome.

Tyson Kidd could have been given this Yes/No thing and he could have succeeded with it. Something that anybody can do isn't seen as being very valuable or novel.

Now people are gonna say "oh well Bryan is a genius for making it work, then, since no one else did it before." Bryan was given this character because the WWE had absolutely nothing else for him, so they gave him something shallow and devoid of much thought. Kinda like "fuck it, we can't be bothered to think of anything, just give him this." There's also a reason no one else did it before-because it was so obvious and apparent, so they tried to stay away from it. No thought is required to get this over, so the Fed went in other more original directions. Finally they threw this basically automatically successful idea to a guy they had no clue what to do with. Now he's succeeding. Yeah...real genius there. We should all kiss the ground this guy walks on because he's gotten over with an idea that was assured to get over.

So the creative is behind Bryan's success...
You mean the creative knew that if they book him to lose in 18 seconds,he will became one of the most over guys in the roster.
And still you believe that the Yes/No chant is the reason that he is popular?The Yes chant at the beginning became huge not only because it was something fun to chant(Like or hate it for some people is) but a way from the fans to say We dont like this shit that happen. We dont agree with this.We like Daniel Bryan. YES! YES! YES!

Also the YES thing came through us a way to annoy the fans.Look at the key word here "ANNOY".Not to make them angry,not to make them hate the guy just annoy.It was an element to his heel character back then like NO is an element to his character as a tweener.

His beard hides his smile. 60% of the promos and segments he is doing this smiling angry faces.

Bryan said in an interview that he started doing the YES thing by himself and that Vince McMahon only became aware of it around wrestlemania.

I didn't mind it. I thought it was funny. It reminded me of something Kurt Angle would do back in 2000.
