Daniel Bryan tops WWE’s Top 10 most emotional title wins (as if there was any other choice)

WWE has produced some tear-jerkers, and this list does a pretty good job compiling the top ones.

Maybe it’s recency bias, but I find the ones from this decade (Bryan, Sami Zayn & Bayley in NXT, Dolph Ziggler’s Smarkamania cash-in) to be more powerful than some of the older ones (Big Show... really?).

And then, of course, there’s Eddie Guerrero, who I guess we should get used to WWE mentioning whenever possible during Hispanic Heritage Month. Not that he’s not deserving of every mention, but, damn...

Well, at least in this case, they’re warning us up front we’re gonna get emotional.
