I'll forgive you for this. I can't blame latecomers to the bandwagon for not knowing the talent that Bullet Club had for many years. It doesn't help when only attention is given to either those well established before joining (Styles, Rhodes) or those popularised by the internet (Omega, Bucks).

Bryan at his peak was more beloved by the audience and didn't have to do any worked shoot promos to get over. Bryan created a chant still heard in sports arenas around the globe. CM Punk promised ice cream bars that turned out to be undelivered promises. Hold that L.

So you're saying Bryan is better just cause the audience liked him more? Don't get me wrong I am a HUGE Daniel Bryan fan, but CM Punk didn't have to run down the ramp screaming "Yes!" repeatedly every week to get people to notice him. Instead he cut one promo and everyone instantly loved him. They noticed him before that obviously but that one promo made him a bigger star than he was already. People still do the yes chants, yeah. Usually when Daniel is around. But people REMEMBER the pipebomb even tho it's been years since it happened. Worked shoot or not people remember it. Anyone could have cut that promo really, but not like Punk did it. Punk was a great talker, better than Bryan imo. When it comes to in-ring skills they were about even. Again, this is just my opinion. They were both equally good in the ring to me. Punk wasn't just a good wrestler he was a good talker. Bryan wasn't a bad talker, he isn't a bad talker but he certainly isn't one of the greatest talkers ever. I'd say fans loved them both equally too honestly. Both were fucking awesome, that's something nobody can deny.

I respect your argument, but let's see here

IN PUNK'S FAVOR:

- better on the mic

IN BRYAN'S FAVOR:

- Did something Punk always wanted to do but never could by actually headlining WrestleMania (and winning)
- Actually picked up the W vs. Triple H
- better in-ring wrestler
- more followers on twitter
- didn't switch to UFC and get his shit fucked up

IN CONCLUSION:

Bryan did everything that CM Punk always wanted to do, but never could. Beautiful Bryan takes the W. Mic work is important and all, but when Bryan beats him on every other front, it's really no contest. I mean, you could argue they're equal in the ring, but you'd be wrong. Punk was very good, definitely in the upper echelon, but Bryan was a generational talent and all of the accolades he received over his career (various "Wrestler of the Year" type awards) back that statement up.

:fact:

Rock pulled off an amazing thing. Someone should have recorded Vince's live reaction there lol.

As far as Punk and Bryan goes, Punk will always be a better man on the mic. His mic skills are legendary and he can be believable both as a face and a heel. As far as Bryan goes, he is a better wrestler than Punk. Although the difference between them is not huge, it still is there and Bryan wins it.

Punk was very good, definitely in the upper echelon, but Bryan was a generational talent and all of the accolades he received over his career (various "Wrestler of the Year" type awards) back that statement up.

:fact:

Respecting both arguments here as I am a fan of both Bryan and Punk, but admittedly, Punks attitude and who he was resonated with me more(Maybe cause I'm an asshole. I don't know.) But I also love Daniel Bryan and hes the kind of person you'd want to aspire to be. 

but allow me to offer up a counter:

Depending on the merit we place on both Dave Meltzer's rating system and CM Punks words I would argue that Punk having two 5 star matches under his belt and Daniel Bryan never being able to achieve that is something that ways heavily on the side of CM Punk as a better wrestler, and that's keeping in mind, Punk has those and also rarely wrestled a bad match (Bryan won Oustanding Wrestler of the Decade through the same newsletter but never achieved that 5 star match) second, Daniel Bryan's success was a multitude of things. It was his skill, and his popularity but it was a result of WWE's terrible booking as well as Batista's return and Bryan's elimination at the Rumble. His popularity was spit in the face of the people writing the show who were trying to put their guy over. I would go so far to argue that it was because of CM Punk and what he said, and what he did when he walked out that pushed this forward. 

Daniel Bryan definitely earned his stripes and deserved his main event, but I don't think it would have happened quite as organically without CM Punk, you can even throw Zack Ryder's name in there for his Ryder Revolution being another instance of the fans insisting on what they wanted. But we should all remember on one night, CM Punk went from being just some guy who was good at wrestling, to the reason people watched WWE again because of one promo.

I think it comes down to who you resonate more with, when you're comparing Bryan to Punk, I would even put his accollades into question against Punk. Punk was white hot and SHOULD have beaten HHH, that would have been best for business. CM Punk SHOULD have been in the main event against teh Rock and Cena, that would have been a better match to watch and best for business. The difference between Punk and Bryan is somebody actually did the right thing. regardless of who was better or worse.

PostSubject: Re: Just another reason CM Punk is better than Daniel Bryan   Wed 22 Feb - 4:44

Eh, likes apples and oranges. CM Punk became huge for doing his own thing, and Bryan became huge for constantly being the victim of something and being the underdog. Honestly, I think the one thing that sucks the most for Bryan is that since coming to the WWE, I've always felt he was being held back and had just as much potential as Punk in terms of being edgy. I mean, just look at his ROH day. The guy has the mic skills. But it really just changed in the fact how both started with WWE career where Punk was this independent high prospect talent in ECW at the time and Daniel Bryan had to go through things the Tough Enough way, which quite frankly, I think was the longer way to go in terms of getting a push. 

Lets not forget the fact that A LOT of moments hindered Daniel Bryan overall push, like having to get fired over the tie incident and so on, but I think what isn't fair is that Daniel Bryan was always pushed as the underdog, while CM Punk was always the leader. I would give CM Punk a ton of credit for basically being himself and being put on the map. I mean Straight Edge Society, the pipe bomb, and the ability to play the extreme guy. Where we look at Daniel Bryan, who quite frankly was never anything like his American Dragon days, where lets face it, WWE's version is domesticated. Once again, this is where I believe there is an edge for punk, because yeah, people can talk about feud of the years and match of the years, but a lot of those feuds and matches are driven by the fact that there are tons of ego going involved. Cena vs Punk was just that, where I do always believe matches where there is a huge discrepancy of an underdog vs the unstoppable force to be a 5 star match contender. And no, I never once believed CM Punk was ever an underdog even during his feud with Cena. Not even during his MMA stint did he feel like an underdog with his ego and arrogance. But I do feel that Daniel Bryan was just always portrayed as such, and we all have seen just how savage Daniel Bryan can be on the mic. 

At this point, you can just argue, CM Punk is better, because he was able to maintain his personality and get to where he is on his own merits. But at the same time, for all the Bullcrap Daniel Bryan was put through, especially with the Miz and hell, I think intentionally being left out to draw more heat. But its like what I hear when people talk about Nakamura. Nakamura could be given the worse gimmick ever, but people are naturally just going to resonate with his charm and charisma and support him anyway. And that is likely what is what helped Daniel Bryan get through a ton of hiccups in his time with WWE. 

Now personally, I like Daniel Bryan more. I feel his matches were more consistent and despite not having 5 star matches, I don't think he has had bad matches. If anything, I'd give him more credit for being able to work so well with others, he made other people look good. I mean, look at the Miz. Miz was crap until he started really working with Bryan. And honestly, if the roles were reversed, where Punk was the underdog and Bryan was the edgy one, I don't think Punk could had pulled off  what Daniel Bryan did, but the other way around, yeah, I think Daniel Bryan could make it work. Once again, not to discredit what Punk has done. He basically did was only few wrestlers like Stone Cold Steve Austin has done and was able to just become himself as a character, which is amazing and it worked so well for him. But I feel like Daniel Bryan could had done more on many levels with his talent, and if WWE let him go loose at the time, Punk wouldn't had seem as special. Honestly, I think if you think pre-WWE, Brian Danielson was a bigger prospect than Punk, but the way both men were pushed is so parallel and part of me is kind of disappointed that Daniel Bryan pretty much just "did his job" where Punk made his moment opposing it, its still impressive he was able to make it work. 

But I won't lie to myself when I say, yes, I do believe CM Punk did pave the way WWE does things now in terms of allowing WWE to put faith in the indie talent. Honestly, I feel this comparison is similar to Bret Hart (Daniel Bryan) to Shawn Michaels (CM Punk), where people will say Bret Hart is clearly the better all around wrestler and probably would had been bigger if he was more edgy, but HBK man, he really changed the game by having WWE put a world title on someone that wasn't a powerhouse and made room for just about anyone to win it. While I'm sure HBK wasn't the first lightweight to win the heavyweight title, he is certainly the name that comes up, and unfortunately, if people ask who was probably the guy that brought in all the indie talents we see today, CM Punk will probably get credit for it.
