Re: Daniel Bryan's acting

This. He actually got the idea from an MMA fighter who does the same thing on the way to the octagon. Positive something or other. Don't remember exactly.

I don't think a lot of you exactly get DB'S character, he's SUPPOSED to be childish. He's like the modern day Pee Wee Herman, watch how over the top Paul Reubens was in that role. It made him famous as hell.

I almost think they gave DB this role to demean him, but if they did, it backfired.

We the people.

Re: Daniel Bryan's acting

Of all people to complain about, you pick Daniel Bryan? He's easily a better actor than a good 3/4ths of the roster.


^furious, projects self-image onto others^

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

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.
Are words like 'substance' really applicable for a broadened comedy role though? In WWE of all things? Methinks you're taking this call for improvement a little too far. Get too pedantic about making humour more 'smart and upmarket' and you likely suck the fun out of it for a lot of the audience who aren't looking for that. And if do you want to get technical about Bryan's catchphrase 'Yes' and its relevance, then its origins are traced back to heel Bryan's weaseling about all throughout his WHC 'survival' reign. The 'No' thing is just a continuation of this schtick while playing it up even more for those in attendance. Just like that awful 'What' chant is.

And let's be honest, a tagline like 'Ayatollah Of Rock n' Rolla' is only cool in the context of pro wrestling. Say something like that anywhere else and you'll likely get tarred and feathered. In saying that, however, it certainly does fit the bill of the Chris Jericho-Y2j character.

Re: Daniel Bryan's acting

While there may not be much of a difference between Santino and D Bryan at this point, I will say it's still entertaining at times (at some times it can be rough to watch though). I'd personally prefer it if they at least showcased some of the stuff he could do in the ring.
