The new Daniel Bryan


They say that some men are destined for greatness, but there is an argument to be made that Daniel Bryan is one of the few who was literally chosen for it.
Chosen not by the WWE decision-makers who hired him off the recommendation of Bryan’s mentors, Shawn Michaels and William Regal, or even by the mass-marketing machine that has helped elevate stars into Superstars since the dawn of sports-entertainment. No, Daniel Bryan was quite literally chosen by the people.
It was the WWE Universe who saw something special in the 5-foot-10 bearded bulldog, powering him from a one-and-done NXT Rookie to a scrappy United States Champion, a Money in the Bank winner-turned cocky World Heavyweight Champion and one-half of the dysfunctional Team Hell No alongside Kane. It was the WWE Universe who took Bryan’s signature “YES!” chant — initially an ironic display of unearned arrogance — and transformed it into a rallying cry, screaming it in unison every time they sensed Bryan was being passed over for someone less deserving.
And it was the WWE Universe who propelled the world-traveled independent veteran to the greatest upset in WrestleMania history when Bryan, after nearly a year of battling the powers that be, defeated Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista in the same night to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

BEFORE AND AFTER | Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre


If there was any lesson to be learned from The Shield’s breakup a few years ago, it’s that the greatest threat to the group usually lies from within. So while The Hounds of Justice might withstand an outside threat like Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre — key word being might, but we’re a few weeks away from testing that — there’s something to be said for The Monster Among Men’s newest tactic of stirring up some latent discord by targeting Dean Ambrose.

MICAWRESTLING | BALOR



eet Finn Bálor: Athletic, charismatic, occasionally demonic, and a bona fide worldwide sensation.
The WWE Universe may know Bálor for being the first-ever Universal Champion, but the mysterious Irishman’s legend spanned across countries and continents long before he ever stepped onto the WWE stage. After competing in his first match at 18 and achieving success in his homeland, Bálor relocated to Japan to hone his skills in the notorious dojo system of the Far East. Unsurprisingly, he thrived, winning multiple championships and marshalling several foot soldiers to support him (some even called him a prince). He soon relocated to America to ply his trade in NXT, where he achieved a record-setting run with the NXT Championship, among other accolades.
