Most people are wondering why WWE decided to have Daniel Bryan cash in this Money in the Bank contract at TLC. In my opinion, it's the best decision WWE has made since turning R-Truth heel.
Daniel Bryan says he was gonna cash in the contract at WrestleMania 28 on whoever the champion was at that time. Most likely, a new champion would've been crowned at WM28 and they would've wanted that superstar to have a longer reign. It was smart to have him win it earlier, especially with Royal Rumble coming up soon and it gives plenty of time to create a rivalry with Bryan and Big Show over the title, and maybe even add Mark Henry into the picture, especially since Henry didn't get the chance for a rematch against Big Show.
WWE has also been talking about turning Henry face once again, and when better to do it then at the start off a new year? This would also be a good way to turn Big Show back into a heel. WWE needs more heels ever since CM Punk became a tweener even though he's but mostly a good guy, and that Christian is out of action with a neck and leg injury.
I hope that Daniel Bryan has quite a long run as champion, say...maybe 3 months? Also, maybe give him a new or maybe another finishing maneuver, something he can use to pin his opponents. Especially since I cannot see him making Big Show or Mark Henry tap out to the LeBell Lock, let alone locking it in.
