What made you like Daniel Bryan during his first run?

From 2013-2015 Bryan was the most over guy in the company. The question was what made you like him? What made him gravitate to you?

Re: What made you like Daniel Bryan during his first run?

this is a trick question for me cause I liked him basically since he was first in WWE but I can't really fully tell you why outside of him having this everyman charisma that I just gravitated towards him. Can't really explain it properly.

Great in the ring and a common man underdog.

He's that guy who SHOULDN'T have got where he did. It felt like us fans were winning, something we hadn't really got in a decade. I mean we got a glimpse of it with Punk, who was much better on the mic than Bryan but he never really got his BIG Wrestlemania moment and storyline like Bryan did.

Remember, we had just pretty much had a decade of dominance from John Cena - so to get this guy who was basically universally loved beat him. CLEAN. And then put into a huge Wrestlemania storyline the following year was just great fun.

Nothing, I started liking him after he won the WHC and got with AJ Lee. He was quite bland before that.

For me I always knew Daniel Bryan was a great wrestler it was his Team Hell no run which showed his charisma.

I loved him as Bryan Danielson years before, and I liked cause he is one of the best in the world at what he does. His rise to the top felt so organic and his in ring and just babyface character just makes you want to cheer for him. Amazing that today he's one of the best heels around and that he returned to the ring after having to retire early. He's one of the few guys out there who's just great at what he does.

I didn't like him until he turned Heel and developed the NO! Chants, After that I became a supporter.

Re: What made you like Daniel Bryan during his first run?

I liked his heel stuff. His babyface run after that was awful, couldn't stand the cringy yes shit, he lost some mass and looked like shit, and him beating Evolution in one night was terrible. It really began the indy/ROH takeover of WWE, which has helped in the death of the business. Looking back though, Bryan wasn't nearly as bad as some of the garbage WWE and NXT puts out now, he could work without being over reliant on high spots and false finishes, could sell and get sympathy, and played the underdog well. Unfortunely, he paved the way for guys like Cole and Gargano who will ultimately be the death of the business, at least the death of the WWE.
