So for the 1st time in months I watched an NXT match and I forgot William Regal was a commentator. Daniel Bryan used the Regal stretch to cause Slater to tap out. I think Daniel Bryan will most likely start using this move since William Regals in-ring career is most likely done. Also man can William Regal please be the person to call all of Daniel Bryans matches. William Regal put him over in that match. Never once did Regal say nerd, vegan, TV, loser. Instead Regal mentioned his kick boxing background, and how he and Shawn Michaels trained him. Regal also said that was the first time he has seen somebody tap out to the Regal stretch in 8 years lol.

Here is a short WWE.com vid of the finisher since it is not on youtube.

I think that's just a tribute giving that Regal was calling the match. It would be cool if he starts using the Regal Stretch but unless he does it in SD! I wouldn't hold my breath.

This could be the start of a Daniel Bryan winning streak if he can continue to use this technique to his advantage.

Overall there needs to be more use of submission techniques, as there was recently in TNA, although that was purely for the fact of securing more points for the BFG series, but bringing more submission techniques into the WWE wouldn't be an overall bad move.

The use of submission techniques may give more leverage over people facing the dominators holding the titles.

It does seem a fitting tribute to one of his mentors during his training.
If he can nail it each time like he did then on Slater then he could go far using that technique.
And the chances of Bryan botching it up are next to none as as Regal said he always is on target.

Meh, why have William Regal commentate in all of Bryan's matches when you could just have him manage Daniel Bryan. Bryan and Regal would make a great pair, giving that they have a sort of student-teacher relationship. Also Regal's mic skills are great while Bryan is lacking a bit. Have Regal be Bryan's mouthpiece until Bryan develops more on the mic.

The more submissions the better.
:agree:

So far he has -

The LeBell Lock (Crossface)
Guilletine (Chokehold)
Regal Stretch (Stepover Toehold Facelock)

I would like to see him use the Triangle Choke and/or the Dragon Sleeper, maybe a leg submission too like the Trailer Hitch (reverse Indian Death Lock) Jamie Noble once used.

I would like to see the Danielson Special, done to smaller opponents. I know Alberto Del Rio uses the armbar but check out this move. Bryan should do as many submissions as he can even if superstars already use them.

I'd mark for Regal to come out on Smackdown and give a stirring promo lambasting Bryan for essentially ruining his greatest part of his career by becoming a colossal failure since MITB. Have him really tear into Bryan and talk about him being nothing like The Best In The World and have Bryan fire back and have this be the turning point along the losing streak angle, culminating in Regal either becoming a Paulie like manager to Bryan's Rocky or by having Regal finally hug/clap Bryan if WWE indeed gives him the title at Wrestlemania.

Alas I agree with antonio saying its most likely a tribute to Regal and due to it being on NXT which is barely covered I'd assume Bryan treated it like a dark match/house show where he could use this submission once without having to use it longterm, though it would be indeed awesome if he did.

Hopefully he also unleashes the Crossface Chickenwing into his arsenal if they insist on giving him more credible submissions, it would also lend well to targetting another part of the body to go along with the neck in the choke and the arm/neck/lower back with the lebell lock.

I think that Bryan should just become a submission specialist mixing in his kickboxing talents to weaken his oppenents down to the point where he can slip them into a submission and take a victory.

This would be a good way for Bryan's career to go in my honest opinion.

The more finishers the better. It literally makes Bryan dangerous in almost any spot in a match. I would love to see Bryan do something like the Liontamer in a match.

Bryan looks more legitimate with each submission he gains. Although winning a match on TV here and there would help. :side:
