I can't agree with the fans that say the WHC was worthless... Daniel started the YES chants in his WHC reign. The crowd got behind Bryan after his 18 seconds loss at WM. If that match was for the IC title, the effect wasn't gonna be the same.

Without the second world title a lot of guys will be screwed in the next 5-10 years. No matter how much you build the Intercontinental Championship it won't replace the big gold belt.

No, his Yes chants was what got him over

As you've said, Bryan started doing his Yes chants during his world title reign. He did it the first time ever when he cashed in his MITB on Big Show for the WHC. Then he'd do ridiculous things like interrupting Big Show's matches by doing the Yes chants while hopping around the ring. The Yes chants were so silly that it was good

But I do think that if he would've held the IC belt and done the same thing, he would still be over

The belt is just a piece of metal but the gimmick/work rate is what makes the crowd love a wrestler

Bryan got over because the WM28 crowd was full of people who love wrestling and felt cheated that one of the worlds' best wrestlers was, himself, cheated out of an actual match on the "grandest stage of them all".

'YES!' chants went viral after because of that.

I think 18 seconds was a breaking point.
I mean if it was a regular 15-20 mins match Bryan may not get over and wwe jobbed him in midcard.

I agree. But if it was 18 seconds for the IC or US title ... people were gonna say "well ok we'have seen way bigger sh*t in the midcard" ... But an 18 seconds match for the world championship on the greatest stage of them all...

WHC worked for some but not for others.

Mark Henry in the H.O.P. gimmick was legit and he was getting major heat/pops depending on what city he was in.

It's certainly not worthless like alot of people suggest.

I would have gave my right nut for Sandow to hold that title if he cashed in successfully.
