One More Step Up

I am ashamed.

When I think back on all the crap I gave Justin Labar for his constant praising of Daniel Bryan, it's shameful to think about the complete 180 I've taken since then. Daniel Bryan — and even the back-and-forth between him and A.J. — is my favorite part of Smackdown right now.

He has found his element. He feels comfortable in this role. He's playing it to PERFECTION.

The fact that he's still the World Heavyweight Champion, heading into WrestleMania, is quite the development in the first place. If Vince was simply throwing him a bone back then, I can't imagine that's the case now. Surely, Vince sees the positive side of a bad Daniel Bryan like I do.

However, the attention does need to tranfer from Bryan and A.J. to Bryan and Sheamus. Quickly, too.
