It really isn't about the amount of moves you do, but rather how they are all spaced out, and how they are fitted into the match. Doing the same sequence all the time every time isn't great, but if the match is worked well enough then you really can get by with a few very simple "moves".

Wow what happened last night is in the biggest news stories of the day over here on the BBC website....

http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/25911039

I believe both Foley's letter and DBs tweets are kayfabe to further the bigger picture.

I don't think for one minute either would bite the hand that feeds them and risk being punished in some way.

Yeah he's doing small earning shit like comedy gigs in ECW style venues. He will have grown accustomed to a certain style of living through earning good money for years with E. Now he's still earning but obviously nowhere near those amounts anymore so his bank account is only going to go down and down if he wants to live life the same way he's used to without having to make cut backs.


He is inteligent enough to realise E are the only company in his industry to make money in and he's burned bridges in TNA. It will all be part of the bigger picture as fans buy into a legend of the business being outspoken and dropping an F bomb.

Huh, DB's tweet, coupled with Foley's which I had read, does sort of change things. I didn't know about Bryan's tweet. So this whole thing is still kayfabed... interesting. Looks like they pulled the wool over my eyes.

IF, that's IF, they booked Bryan out of the rumble as a storyline gimmick to piss the fans off, then that's brilliant booking, because that means they're still actively working on building Bryan up as a star.

If they did it as negligence, it's utter crap.

And I'm going to copy and paste this over in the Royal Rumble thread too.

Back on the subject of Bryan himself, I just do not get all this love for him, sure hes a great worker and a solid addition to any upper mid-card of the roster of any major wrestling promotion, but hes fairly weak on the mic, all he does is shout YES! while pointing in the air, hes small, looks like a troll and he doesn't have any superstar aura about him.

Maybe its just me but I see wrestling as being about larger than life characters who have that wow factor and whenever two of them face each other in the ring there is a big fight feel, I get that smaller technically sound guys have their place in the business but its not in the main events, unless of course they have the it factor to go with the wrestling talent.

I was happy to see Bryan ommited from the Royal Rumble match and happier still to see Batista win the match setting up several interesting possibilities for the Wrestlemania main-event.

Bryan does have the "IT" factor. You can not deny how over he is right now and it has stuck around for such a long time that "He's the flavour of the month" isn't a valid argument either. Nearly the entire crowd (not just in smark towns) stand up and chant with him when he comes out. Daniel Bryan having the "IT" factor isn't even a debate anymore. I have watched more WWE (including PPVs) almost solely of Daniel Bryan being high on the card.

On top of that he is a brilliant wrestler. Best in the company with Punk the only one that you can put an argument for. Just look at what that match did for Bray Wyatt considering how bad his inferno match was. He consistently pulls out top matches, he is as consistent as Shawn Michaels. 

I'm almost certain he was omitted for an angle. Hopefully its the authority taking another one of his opportunities away. Down the road Undertaker gives Daniel Bryan an opportunity at Wrestlemania. Think someone talked about something like that. 
All Hail Mitchell Johnson and David Warner.

Fixed.

But yeah, I agree. Like him or not he's a top tier guy. If I have to get used to the idea and accept Brock Lesnar as a top guy no matter fucking much I think he doesn't deserve it, then other's ought to be able to get used to the idea that, like him or not so is Daniel Bryan.

Pro-Wrestling is NOT about larger than life characters; WWE used to be, and that led to the steroid scandals of the 1990's. Pro-Wrestling is about pure athletic ability coupled with showmanship. Daniel Bryan is a pro-wrestler every bit as much as someone like Verne Gagne or Lou Thesz. He may not be Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, or John Cena, but he IS very likely to become the face of the twentyteens.

What a crock of shit, how do you explain Ziggler being a flop champ twice, Bryan bombing as a top guy and plunging the ratings into 1995 depths? Vast majority of fans don't care about "pure wrestlers", those are dime a dozen and expendable.   

Bryan is a fantastic hand in ring and his chant is over, does not in any way qualify him to be face of the company. His fans are the exact same people who leech PPV streams and torrents rather than pay for the events, he would bankrupt the company as their poster boy..

He was in the title picture in the most undramatic part of the year. Ratings always go down there. Plus he was headlining PPVs with the most uncharasmatic guy near the main event. The buys for Survivor Series supported that Smackdown was already dead when he was World Champion there. You can't put a black fine through his name because of those results.

Are we still using the "All his fans are 25 year old virgins" argument?......... still?
