Daniel Bryan is a phenomenal character
Literally the guy was the most over superstar on Smackdown even before he came back to the ring last year. I mean the guy could get the crowds of Lafayette & Corpus Christi to cheer, along with his Yes chant he was definitely the loudest pop on the Main roster.
Fast forward 3-4 months and the guy is easily one of the most hated performers on TV from a crowd reaction standpoint, and he can come out and get boos every week now as soon as his music hits, and he’s getting nuclear heat with a gimmick as basic as being a tree-hugger.
Even as one of the smallest, most unappealing bodies on the WWE roster, he consistently gets crowd reactions and can play both a heel and face to a tee. I think we underappreciate this man’s ability at times.
