The one good sign is that Bryan is rallying people on Twitter to tweet using the hashtag #YESMovement and saying we have to let our voices be heard.

I'm HOPING they're just using this to build up to something big and make it seem like he has no chance of main eventing WM then he'll fight his way into it. I doubt he'd be rallying the masses against the company like that unless they told him to...

Exactly, he's a pro... not some punk kid. He wouldn't be speaking out against the "machine" for personal gain. I also doubt he come up with something as corny as #YESMovement... that's got WWE written all over it.

Not really, but WWE hasn't booked anything well in a while.


Bryan's got a similar vibe to Tommy Dreamer. The more Tommy loses, the more over he is. The more WWE tries to hold Bryan down the more over hew is. It's quite fascinating really.

I really wanna see a big Bryan vs Cena match the night after Mania. Cena doesn't have to turn heel, because he's already the biggest heel in the company in many ways. I just wanna see the most over-pushed vs most under-pushed guys 1-on-1 in front of a smarky crowd. Would be priceless.

i can see why some would think it's planned, and if it is then they would have known Batista was going to get boo'd out of the building if he won, ending the RR with the crowd exiting and booing wasn't a good look..

i think we are giving them too much credit, we are talking about a company that put HHH over Punk for NO REASON when Punk white hot..

They took Bryan out of the authority angle and it looked like he was out of the title picture, until the fan's chanted his name during the SS main event, and took over an entire main event segment on RAW.. all of which i doubt WWE thought would happen

On his way back up the ramp, Batista got into a verbal altercation with a disgruntled fan who flipped him off. Batista could be seen on the big screen telling the fan that he'd snap him in half and then flipped the fan off while still on the big screen. He then mockingly did the "Yes!" chant at the top of the ramp while fans peppered him with boos. However, instead of using his pointer fingers, he used his middle fingers and flipped the crowd off.

Even If this is planned, WWE is dropping the ball massively here.


You bury someone amazingly over with a crowd and run a risk of the hit being too steep and the same energy is never recovered.


At some point people will stop supporting a piss poor product that is predictable and literally trying to force feed particular talent down people's throats rather than going with the tide of what fans are showing them.



Stupid company.
