What’s Bothering Me? (In Professional Wrestling)

#3. WWE Hyping Daniel Bryan's WM Match

At this point, who cares?

If you follow my work here on WZ, you know I'm not the biggest Daniel Bryan fan. If you're looking for one, see Justin LaBar. I understand he's a great worker, but I don't see the "it" factor like some fans do.

Call it his fault; call it Creative's fault. I'm not seeing it either way.

That said, he was one of the "Money in the Bank" winners this year and deserves better as such. What good does it do to start hyping his WrestleMania match during a time where he's losing so much?

I've heard some fans saying that it's WWE's way of creating doubt – making us think that he'll be the first MITB winner to cash in and lose. The idea being that it will mean more that way. That seems pretty backwards to me. Winning a World championship does not make you an overnight success, especially if it's after a long, horrible streak of losing.

Regardless, I honestly don't think Vince will ever allow Daniel Bryan to get "too" big. CM Punk is enough when it comes to ROH and internet darlings. The infamous debate is whether Bryan deserves to be there or not.
