The world collectively became a believer this past Monday night during the latest episode of Monday Night Raw.
Daniel Bryan single-handedly elevated his stock value in his one-on-one match against Ryback that hands-down stole the entire show. Bryan, who was dead set on proving that he could be his own entity without Team Hell No did so, leaving the entire world wanting more of Mr. “No! No! No!”.
Bryan’s performance has generated a good amount of conversation within the internet community of what may come next for him. Without any question, the only appropriate direction for him would be his journey to win the WWE Championship.
Bryan is a former World Heavyweight Champion and World Tag Team Champion, so his resume on paper shows that he is already established. But it was the match with Ryback that showcased what exactly was missing from him in order for him to be considered elite.
The next step that would make the most sense for him would be challenging John Cena for the WWE Championship at the “Money In The Bank” pay-per-view.
Money In the Bank has always been honorable to him since he won the Smackdown Money In the Bank match at the 2011 PPV, and eventually cashed in his briefcase to win the world title. With the momentum that he is currently riding on and with his already established level of comfort with the PPV, this could be Bryan’s moment to fully prove that his time is here and that the WWE title is rightfully his.
