This guy vs. Daniel Bryan in a pro wrestling ring? It actually makes more sense than you might think.
As touched on yesterday, Daniel Bryan has accomplished more than he could have ever dreamed of in not only making his way to the top of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) but to also get the chance to work a pay-per-view (PPV) match against fellow indie brat CM Punk with the WWE championship on the line. He's come a long way in his pro wrestling career but there's still plenty left he would like to do before calling it quits, not that that's happening anytime soon.
"I think he brings a lot of added interest to the company and I'm hoping some of those UFC fans will come and watch some of out pay-per-views, especially that last pay-per-view Extreme Rules was awesome. It was an awesome show. I hope they stick around and watch Over the Limit and they're going to see another awesome show. This is going to be a great night of wrestling for everybody involved. I think it's great and I would love to have a match with Brock Lesnar. I know that's probably not in the cards but I'm petitioning for it right now because I feel like me and him could have a match unlike any other pro wrestling match in North America probably ever."
I don't think there's any questioning Bryan's claim that they could have a match unlike any in the history of North America. He would go on to say that, much like John Cena, he wouldn't shy away from hard contact for the sake of the match. But, unlike Cena, he has a legitimate background in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and the grappling arts. In short, he would know the correct way to counter Lesnar's vicious ground-n-pound.
And if WWE is serious in its quest to bring a certain measure of legitimacy to its product, wouldn't Bryan be the perfect foil for a guy like Lesnar? He doesn't have the name value of a Cena, sure, but by all accounts, the powers that be want to use Brock to make bigger superstars of guys already on the roster.
Who better than Daniel Bryan?
