Hey guys hope all is well, Knox here. I'm really interested in the current direction of Daniel Bryan, I definitely enjoy what's going on here. Wrestling has been around for over 50 years so ofcourse stories will be rehashed so its safe to say its no surprise that we are in the midst of Cm Punk's Straight Edge Society but this time with Daniel Bryan's Vegan gimmick.
Let's talk about some similarities between the two because they are there and I feel like the WWE does this on purpose with guys with such a huge following like Daniel Bryan & Cm Punk.
Cm Punk & Daniel Bryan Similarities:
- Wrestled for ROH, TNA & WWE
- Very small frame guys
- Beloved by the internet
- Won the World Championship in short stages
- Cult like following
Straight Edge Society vs Vegan Society:
Now lets break this down. They both are stressing something that actually is important yet the WWE makes them preach their true words as heels. This is something I noticed.
Cm Punk's Scapegoats: Jeff Hardy & R-Truth
Cm Punk was bashing the Universe for smoking, drinking and relying on drugs to get them through the day. He had two scapegoats which were R-Truth & Jeff Hardy. Hardy was the drug user whom Punk referred to and they used his history of drugs as an angle to put Punk over. They also used R-Truth's real life addiction to cigarettes.
Daniel Bryan's Scapegoats: The Big Show & Mark Henry
Daniel Bryan also has two scapegoats. His scapegoats are/was Mark Henry & The Big Show. He uses them by pointing out the fact that they do indulge in alot of meat and dairy products and say's that's the reason they are so heavy.
Cm Punk's Henchmen: Luke Gallows & Serena
These were the two naive people that the WWE booked to have Punk's back. They booked this as if Punk was their savior and if you ask me it was pure gold.
Daniel Bryan's Henchman: A.J.
A.J. is the sweet naive female that's booked to think Daniel Bryan actually loves her. As Cole said, "she would dive in front of a bus for Bryan". Every cult leader has that following and atleast one member that will sacrifice all to show love to her master.
Similarities in Daniel Bryan & Cm Punk's career paths:
They both debuted as these huge popular underdogs. They were given that same tough guy little guy gimmick in which they were small but they backed down to no fight. They were already very famous so they came in with a huge buzz and everyone seemed to love them.
They both won the MITB Ladder match. They way to push guys this small is to give them the MITB briefcase. It shows the pure underdog in each of them. Its basically saying the only way they'll ever get a title shot is by winning this match. They would never be randomly booked in a one on one match for the title.
They both won the World Heavyweight Championship at a young stage in their career. They both used this title to enhance their Straight Vegan & Straight Edge society.
They are also both pushing for the fans to actually do something that will benefit you but being booked as the bad guys. Eating too much meat does indeed clog arteries. Smoking is bad for you. Simple as that.
Basically I wanna see what's next for Bryan. I'm loving this run. How far can it continue and how far will the WWE let it go. I hoep you all enjoyed this, please leave comments and feedback and CHECK OUT MY NEW TRACK BELOW GUYS. YOU WILL LOEV IT. Be safe guys. Until then.
