The fans from RAW, NXT, and SmackDown may have been complacent over the release of Bryan Danielson, but not New York.
Throughout all the five boroughs, fans united in an effort to get their voices heard. Unlike the story line between NXT and WWE, this is truly a situation of Us vs. Them.
Wrestling fans attempted to bring in signs reading “Bring back Daniel Bryan!” And “Reinstate Daniel Bryan!” Yet, WWE management made sure that these signs never made it into the arena.
If NXT can fight against WWE, so can we.
Throughout the evening, during any mention of NXT, fans chanted “Daniel Bryan!” When the Miz fought against R-Truth, the fans chanted to the former mentor, “Daniel Bryan!” And even when John Cena spoke about NXT, the fans chanted “Daniel Bryan!”
Fans even took it a step further, by jeering at Michael Cole. Some even calling him a Poor Man’s replacement of JR.
Bryan Danielson responded on his twitter page regarding the chants at the PPV:
“Heard there were some “Daniel Bryan” chants tonight… the support from my fans is heartwarming.”
A message to the WWE: We the fans stand united as one. We the fans know who we want. We the fans want “Daniel Bryan!” back in the WWE.
