DB has that underdog hero lure to him, similar to Rey. Plus, he's super friendly with kids out of the ring too; that helps. With Punk doing a program with Brock at SummerSlam, Bryan is def a favorite to win the MITB.
RKO has nobody but himself to blame for his downfall. Getting suspended by the Wellness Program multiple times doesn't help.
