Daniel Bryan is now a 4x WWE Champion, however at what price?

To many, there are some skilled wrestlers who ought to by no means flip heel. Many put Daniel Bryan on that listing, because of his immensely widespread aura, his “Sure!” catchphrases, and former fan help that led him to the principle occasion of WrestleMania and the WWE Championship again in 2014.

But, if you happen to informed me again then that Daniel Bryan would retire, come out of retirement 4 years later, and reclaim the WWE Championship by turning heel on then-champion AJ Kinds on an episode of Smackdown in 2018, I’d’ve thought you had been loopy. However here is why the heel flip works.

Daniel Bryan has been developing brief in most of his large feuds since popping out of retirement. Other than the forgettable feud with Huge Cass in the beginning of the 12 months, he broke even with the Miz at Summerslam and Tremendous Present-down at 1-1, he misplaced the gauntlet match to grow to be #1 contender again in June after Miz cheated him out of it and Huge Cass eradicated him from the Biggest Royal Rumble in April. Many began to say that Daniel Bryan’s return was a bust.

Enter Tuesday evening.

After tapping out clear to AJ Kinds on the go-home Smackdown Stay earlier than Crown Jewel, Daniel Bryan’s demeanor had began to shift. He acquired extra hostile in the best way he handled being named co-captain of Smackdown Stay. The reminiscences of tapping to Kinds turned delicate materials to him. Bryan informed Kinds to maintain his title out of his mouth – after which he sucker-punched Kinds.

This sucker-punch appeared like the primary inkling {that a} heel flip could possibly be coming for Bryan. However to play satan’s advocate, they had been simply participating in a typical pull-apart brawl. The sudden announcement of a WWE Championship rematch, the considered seeing Daniel Bryan tackle his dream opponent in Brock Lesnar, all of it was beginning to come collectively.

After which Daniel Bryan low-blowed AJ Kinds and hit the working knee to seize the WWE Championship for a fourth time, however at what price?

Hear me out right here, Daniel Bryan is useless. As a personality, Daniel Bryan is useless, however Bryan Danielson has simply been reborn.

Daniel Bryan will nonetheless be the moniker the real-life Danielson will go beneath in WWE, however by way of in-ring model, viciousness and demeanor, Bryan Danielson will dwell on as a breath of contemporary air within the story of Daniel Bryan.

Smackdown Stay was in determined wants of a high heel, and fairly than having somebody like The Miz or Randy Orton to play the dastardly heel position, they now have Daniel Bryan. This will likely be a Daniel Bryan that we as a WWE viewers have by no means seen earlier than, however these conversant in Danielson’s position earlier than WWE in ROH within the mid 2000s will keep in mind fondly.

Gone would be the days of the Sure! chants and the smiling face, and in substitute will likely be beatdowns and tactical kicks. Cerebral assaults on opponents once they least anticipate it, and a heel that will cower but additionally can kick your head in.

The worst kind of heel is a heel that is aware of that they are higher than their opponents, and the viewers is aware of it too. Daniel Bryan will likely be a type of heels.

Throughout the ring from him will likely be a few of Smackdown’s finest, and it seems like AJ Kinds will likely be first in line as soon as Bryan is finished with Lesnar on Sunday.
