As all WWE fans know, Daniel Bryan announced his retirement last Monday in an emotional good-bye to conclude Monday Night RAW. Bryan was one of the few wrestlers that had the WWE Universe back him up through his career and helped escalate his career.
With Bryan retiring, I believe there is a void to fill in WWE, and that’s having a superstar get 100% backed by the WWE Universe.
Here’s five superstars already on the WWE roster that fans should think about getting behind to start a whole new ‘Yes Movement,’ keeping the in-ring memory of Bryan alive and well.
5. Finn Balor
Finn Balor is someone I think could make this happen. Obviously Finn is in NXT as we speak at the moment but he will be on the main roster shortly. I included Balor on the list because he has some characteristics that Bryan had. Finn is a high flyer and willing to take the outside dives, which is really popular with the Universe. Finn already has a decent size fan base in NXT so this can work.
I do have some doubts though, but that can help Finn in this situation. My doubts are his size and his age, but those factors can help the WWE Universe just as easily as it could hurt him.
