A Man of the People

I got goosebumps watching the close of RAW last night, specifically when Daniel Bryan ascended to the top of the cage, astraddle the edge, and the camera panned out wide to show an entire arena pointing both arms into the air and shouting affirmations in the cadence he made famous. Only two weeks away from the limelight as a rebellious folk hero, and the crowd reacted to his homecoming as if he was a prodigal son, wandering the Judean wilderness for years. Regardless of any booking implications, last night's final segment to RAW was goddamn magical to watch at the very least, which as a wrestling fan is all I could ever want.
