Is the massive over reaction to the heel turn by Bryan really justified? This feels more akin to Shawn Michaels defeated, desperate "heel" run with JBL prior to his big time rematch with Undertaker at WM. Meaning there's still plenty of time to get somewhere good by April.
Besides that can't we acknowledge the fact that Bret dropped the strap to Yoko-freaking-Zuna and watched Hogan beat him in a minute. He recovered. CM Punk was a 2 time world champion before he was even a made man in 2011.
Meaning perceptions change and the fact that Bryan is a great worker and decent guy almost guarantees he'll get another run on top especially when you factor in injuries. He's also main evented basically every show the last few months and they gave him the last 30 minutes of Raw (which coincidentally or not drew 4 million viewers for the first time in awhile). Let's see how it places out.
Hopefully not with a pedigree…
