I CAN WAIT for Daniel Bryan to be champion!

I've been visiting this site about a year. This is my first blog post, I guess what I saw at the Rumble was kind of the thing that has motivated me to write about the sad state of affairs. If you are here you probably have had someone say to you "Why do you watch wrestling, it's fake" My reply is easy, it isn't about the results for me, my favorite thing about it is the story lines. The greatest story lines in wrestling I could talk about with other fans for decades. Second thing they keeps me coming back is the athleticism of some of these superstars. I watch guys like Dolph Ziggler, D Bryan, CM Punk going what looks to me like 110% reckless abandonment of there body to give the audience what they came from. So I love wrestling, I'm not always happy with the direction some stories are going but I've started to relax and try to enjoy the show more than criticize it. Which is what I want to talk about, the WWE universe, especially my fellow attitude era members, have become ridiculously impatient.
Daniel Bryan is obviously the man right now. Deservedly so, he took that 18 second loss to Sheamus and let it light a fire under him. He blamed AJ, he got us to hate him, then he got pushed into the Hell No tag team and they entertained the mess out of us, now he's back to singles and he has been putting on 4.5-5star match after another. It's been a long time since I've seen some one so over inside the WWE and outside. So does he deserve the WWE title and a great run. Yes! for sure, but the WWE creative have been a genius about this. I always say the best stories are those that make you wait. Week after week the universe is going crazy trying to make the WWE pay attention to him, and the funny thing is I'm pretty sure they already have. You can't ignore when entire buildings when they are chanting for one guy and completely stopping a segment from continuing on. They know he is the guy but if they gave the WWE universe everything they wanted then he'd already be champion and then what? It probably be over, D Bryan would have reached the goal and the anxiousness would be over. He'd be the next Zack Ryder, remember him, man that dude was fucking over! He struck gold with that internet show and you could tell he was working hard to be relevant. But then what, he got a little bit of tv time, people didn't like the story line and people were over him, I bet creative wish they would have never done the story line now, because I'm sure he's shirts were flying off the shelves before they gave in to the universe and now I doubt he sells half what he was selling before he got on tv.
On to what's ridiculous though. The treatment of the other superstars because they weren't Daniel Bryan was pretty sickening. I'm not the biggest fan of John Cena or Randy Orton but, I've got respect for them because they show up and try to put on a great show. I didn't love there Survivor series match or which ever one it was that Randy cuffed Cena to the ring, but that match at the Rumble wasn't that bad. Sure, they brought in all the signatures moves but I saw them doing stuff that isn't normally in their repertoire. Yet, from the get go the fans were disrespecting them, that crowd had written them off before it got started which is so detrimental because crowd has a huge sway as to how people watching from home believe the match is going. Don't believe me, watch a pay per view without sound first, then watch it with the crowd. Second rumble moment I could not believe is all the boos when Rey was the 30th person in the rumble. Now I know it wasn't directed at Rey but still. I'm sure he felt ready to go give his all after that.
So, I just wanted to throw those observations out there. Like it or leave it no problem. Seriously though, I'm not sure I want to see D Bryan get the belt because he has been so entertaining watching him overcome each obstacle, it will be sad when the WWE sees him like old hat. Kind of like they see Cena and Orton now, which side note, some blogger pointed out that neither guy held the belt for quite some time (like 2011) before these recent title runs. Hard work always pays off, the belt will always come back around. That's it for tonight. One day soon I'm gonna rant about the hatred for part timers. Hope you guys enjoyed!
