Daniel Bryan is the best thing going today in the WWE

Dean Ambrose wasn’t the only WWE superstar to prove they are one of the best in the business right now.

If you haven’t noticed, Daniel Bryan is arguably the best thing going right now in the WWE. Forget his association with Kane and Team Hell No, which should dissolve once they lose again to The Shield at “WWE Payback” next month, Bryan is headed for singles gold again and possibly (at least I hope so) a feud with Dolph Ziggler with the World Title on the line.

Bryan was outstanding in the tag team match at Extreme Rules and in the six-man-tag match on Monday Night Raw the following night. It is the sudden burst of energy the WWE needs right now with CM Punk of the roster, Undertaker on the shelf, Triple H on the mend, and John Cena trying to decide if he can play through the pain.

Right now, however, Ziggler is out of action with a concussion, and we are not sure when his return will occur, but waiting for him upon his return is Alberto Del Rio, and then the WWE must decided where to take the champion and his title. Something also tells me a feud with “Big E” Langston is on the horizon.

While Ziggler and Bryan would make for a dynamic feud worthy of Ric Flair and Ricky Morton or Jack Brisco and Terry Funk, the WWE is in such disarray that putting together such a great combination will remain on the back burner while the creative team takes care of business that could ultimately stall the current champions push forward.

In my opinion, matches with ADR and Jack Swagger do little to help Ziggler’s career. Bryan is the way to go, where both superstars are dynamic and have sold for each other much like CM Punk and Bryan did in a series of matches over the WWE Title last year.

Upon his arrival has steadily grown as a wrestler and a performer. His shtick as a performer is top notch, playing to the crowd with his “No, No, No” routine and his ability to perfect mat wrestling and aerial moves that are a cross between Chris Benoit, Owen Hart and the Great Muta.

Bryan may not be there yet, but he is close.

Back in the day, matches with Rick Steamboat or Shawn Michaels or the late Eddie Guerrero would have filled arenas and set the WWF so far ahead of WCW and any other wrestling promotions would beg to have that kind of talent on its roster.

Bryan is a rockstar in the mold of a Randy Savage or a Bob Backlund from the 1980s. There is a presence about him people get, a connection that truly makes him great and worthy of a title shot. A title shot with Ziggler, John Cena, CM Punk or whoever the man is holding the title (he and Chris Jericho would also rock the house).

But for now, Bryan will toil in the tag team division and continue to show his skills as a wrestler. As he continues to show how great he is, he also continues to show there are few others on the current WWE roster with as much skill, talent and ability.

The WWE must finally realize what talent stands before them before they bury him as others who are less talented or less worthy get the push he rightfully deserves.
