The New Daniel Bryan won’t take part in ‘wishing a stupid child happy birthday’ after SmackDown

At the rate we’re going today, complaints about the frequency of our posts on Daniel Bryan’s heel turn should be starting in 3... 2... 1...

But, you know what?

Who cares, because the New Daniel Bryan is a stroke of genius from one of the best to ever to do it.

Need another example?

Here’s some video from the dark match in Austin last night (Dec. 4). The WWE champ not only gets a ton of heat for insulting a kid in the crowd who was celebrating their birthday, he does it in a way that allows the audience (and his opponent, a very babyface-acting Miz) to give the fan a rousing “Happy Birthday” chant for their big day:

Damn, he’s good.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to buy a cup, because I 100% believe he is teaching Birdie to kick all dudes in the junk and I want to be prepared in case I ever meet her.
