Despite the fact that he missed the majority of it due to injury, 2014 was the year of Daniel Bryan.
That's because Bryan, one of the best wrestlers in the world, finally reached the top of the mountain in WWE with a WrestleMania performance for the ages. First, he was booked to defeat Triple H in the opener, then he went on to the main event to vanquish both Batista and Randy Orton to win the WWE world heavyweight championship.
