Half the people here think OP is comparing Bryan to the Rock, other half think midcard is supposed to be an insult.

Since 'working a crowd' is not something that can be measured scientifically or objectively and has many variables, I don't see how I can disagree with the OP.

Did you ever think you'd hear a WWE crowd chant hug it out?

As for the thread. Not sure if this is sarcastic. Since The Rock means 2004? I can put at least 30 wrestlers who were better in captivating an audience than Bryan. Bryan is a mid card comedy act who the crowd enjoy chanting against, he does a great version of the pitiful, crazy guy character but that's not working a crowd. He's one of the best currently, that's undoubtedly.
Actually, they started Yessing after Rock said "The Rock guaran-damn-tees this is just the beginning!", which of course is partially Rock's doing and partially Bryan's.(It's not like they would've chanted it if Bryan hadn't introduced it because it wasn't a yes/no question)

The rest of the post I sort of agree with. This current era has lowered our standards and made us forget about the past superstars. There were indeed a lot more better crowd controllers, many of which were mentioned in your second post.

The most impressive thing about Bryan is he has achieved the connection to the audience despite today's restricting programming, uninterested audiences and only a marginal push. As stated earlier in this thread, there aren't many better crowd controllers who haven't won more titles than Bryan or at least the WWE championship.

You know who else works the crowd very well?

Santino Marella yet I'm not going to start stupid conversations trying to compare him to Hulk Hogan as the GOAT.

Did u watch wrestling back then? The Rock wasn't booed because of "Winning all the time". In fact, he jobbed a lot and put over guys in his last years so clearly u don't know what you're talking about. He was booed because he was leaving wrestling to go film movies.

Bryan is great at working the crowd but I wouldn't say best since The Rock. Cena is ahead of him for sure. I would also add Kurt Angle and maybe even RVD.

I can add more if you would be more specific at what you mean by "working a crowd". Bryan is great now with the material you have on the roster currently. Like I said, he's definitely one of the best today and this is the first time that I personally enjoy his work. But let's not get carried away here.
You couldn't add 30 wrestlers and look at who you had to name to use for working a crowd better than Bryan. Those listed are legends and are some of the greatest of all time. If Bryan is getting those reactions on par to their level then what does that say for Bryan?

Status has nothing to do it with it man. No way in hell can Orton, just singling him out here, work the crowd better than Bryan. That's ridiculous, even Orton will tell you he's not a promo guy.

Cena and Punk are more debatable, they may be better promo cutters but i'm not sure they're better at getting the crowd involved.

Is Bryan the best wrestler at working the crowd since the Rock?

LOL!! LOL!! LOL! LOL! (stop it!)

I like DB a lot, and i support him. I believe that he can truly be among one of the all time greats like Angle, Benoit, Eddie etc.. but this question is absurd. Nobody could work the crowd like The Rock... nobody!

Cena durin Thuganomics days was closest to doing so, but even then he was about half as good, if not more

The Yes! phenomenon is more over than Bryan himself and it hasnt been exclusive to him for a long time now. So, I dont get how OP can claim Bryan is the best at working the crowd since the Rock.

Give me an honest answer, If Bryan quits WWE today, will the Yes/No chants stop?
