View Full Version : Daniel Bryan "nerd gimmick"

Something really rubs me the wrong way about the whole Daniel Bryan nerd gimmick and corny entrance music gimmick. It seems like Vince McMahon is subconsciously setting Bryan up for failure. Sometimes it seems like Vince only wants to turn the oiled up He-man types into top stars. I know that he is the US champion now, but I would hate to see such a talented wrestler go down the same path as Santino Marella. If you recall he started out as IC champ and is basically just comic relief now.

Do not misunderstand me because I give Vince all the credit in the world for being the mastermind of sports entertainment. He has forgotten more about the wrestling business than ham and eggers like us will ever know, but I do not understand why he buries some of these smaller stature wrestlers like Daniel Bryan, John Morrison, and Kofi Kingston just to name a few.

Yeah the "nerd" gimmick is a wtf moment. But Ride Of The Valkyries is the perfect theme for him. It's far from corny

His entrance music is awesome. Also, a roster full of rock-stars and cool guys is beyond boring, so I don't really see anything wrong at all with his character.

Same thing happened with Bret Hart and Shawn Micheals surprisingly. They were deemed too small to win the title, but when the trial happened, he wanted champions who weren't big in size, and thus they got their shot and became history.

And seeing the reaction Danielson gets, I can see big things for him.

HURR DURR AMERICAN DRAGON BEIN BURRYD BY WWE MANAGMENTS HERP DE DERP

Christ, do we really need this thread every single week?
^This. (again)

I also feel quite saddened that people would find Wagner's music "corny". He may have been an anti-semite and an utter bastard, but his compositions are formidable works of art and deserve some respect.

I can oddly relate to Daniel Bryans "NERD!" gimmick. An his theme is totally amazing. It is about as close to his Final Countdown theme that he used to have (from what I have heard) before he joined the WWE. An then add to the fact that Vince Mcmahon is behind everything Daniel Bryan-related just shows you how important this guy is to the WWE. Vince realizes that Daniel Bryan is the real deal. This gimmick sets him apart from the other guys who are either egotistical Championship hunger freaks, Psycho's, Monsters, and Super Heros. It is really refreshing to me. <3

My only problem with it is Michel Cole. He has spent his whole career being a dweeb and a nerd. Why have him not act like that only when Bryan is on screen and then go back to normal when The Dragon leaves.

Cole is still very much a dweeb and a nerd when his chastising Bryan for the very same things, which is why it's funny.

Agreed, but most fans don't know Danielson like we do or had never heard of him. They need to do something to get them to notice and care about him. Is it the best idea? God no, but at least they're doing something.

Yeah I have thought that a few times. My one big problem with the whole deal is they have no faith in his mic abilities. The last time he even said anything was when he came out to challenge Ziggler like 3 weeks ago. Let the people get to know his personality more, not just whatever Cole happens to be yelling about. He can def cut a promo, at lest let him show off a little toughness like when he was going after Cole on NXT, how bad ass was some of that stuff. I also agree that despite their best efforts to have him not be over, the crowd always loves underdogs. Also side note how sweet could if be if he went heel with Regal and used elbows as finisher.

I thought they nailed it when Bryan was in NXT and was delivering those shoot style promos. Those sent chills down my spine and his character had all the potential of a new Austin: a rebellious guy out to prove a point, not caring who he upsets along the way.

I also loved how he spat on John Cena, yelling "you are not better than me". That also had so much potential as a character out to prove he is the best and who resents the WWE's top star for being on top.

Ever since the Attitude Era, WWE have had a real problem putting over serious and competetive characters. It's as if they set out to write a comedy show and whenever it gets too intense they change direction to make it frivolous and, dare I say, more effeminate.

Yea they did made bryan say that stuff to cena which was awesome, but then on bryan's return at summerslam it was none other than cena inviting him in to fight nexus.
