Social media has exploded with its latest trend; Daniel Bryan. He is making headlines on every top major wrestling website on the internet and rightfully so. The guy is red hot at the moment and he is WWE’s most intriguing superstar. Fans want to see Daniel Bryan and they can’t get enough of him. Out of all the characters/gimmicks in the locker room, Daniel Bryan’s character by far is the most over. Fans are buying exactly what he’s selling. His in ring ability is near the top of the pro wrestling world, if not at the very top. It all can be summed up in one sentence: Daniel Bryan is the hottest superstar in WWE right now.
On Raw this past Monday his match with Seth Rollins was the highest rated part of the entire show. The following is from our buddies over at WrestleChat.Net:

If you ask me, WWE need to pull the trigger on Daniel Bryan and make him WWE champion. Money in the Bank vs. John Cena, anyone? I want to see that match and I am willing to pay for it. Give him the WWE title, it would look great around his waist. Daniel Bryan – WWE champion: how good does that sound?
