Comparing Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan's Global Popularity on Social Media.


Roman Reigns -

Daniel Bryan-

As you can see, Roman Reigns has already surpassed Bryan, despite the fact Bryan was the one who has received one of the major WWE pushes in recent years with over 10 months of RAW built around him and also main-evented Wrestlemania.

This, without a doubt proves, how crowd reactions in this current era of WWE is not to be trusted, to indicate someone's true overness or potential. At first look to an average viewer, Bryan might look like the most popular star but when you consider the facts when comparing his stardom and name worth to other big names, the real story comes to light. Bryan as a ratings draw did not perform well in 2013, RAW rating average for 2013 is less than of 2012 average. Bryan's PPV buys through much of 2013 including summerslam with Cena were all disappointing. Wrestlemania business itself was deemed average by wrestling critics. When he got hurt and left, it didn't even matter financially to WWE, he was quickly replaced and business moved on despite the fact he had just main evented Mania, wrestling in two matches and going over three of the biggest stars.

It seems crowd reactions are the only thing where Bryan even matters, and those are highly misleading for WWE. If Bryan was indeed the most popular star as the crowds would tell you then how come Roman Reigns, the guy who gets mixed reactions, has already surpassed him in global popularity? When you consider all this, why shouldn't Vince Mcmahon choose to push Roman Reigns instead of Bryan this Wrestlemania?

And before you dismiss social media as not worthy of consideration, I'd like to point out why Cena is the face of WWE....




And why The Rock headlined 3 wrestlemanias over someone like Punk....




These are valid indicators of how big of a star a WWE wrestler has become.
