YES Takes Over

Daniel Bryan in the two year period between his character's nadir at WrestleMania XXVIII and his height at WrestleMania XXX needed a lot to get from the aforementioned point A to point B. He needed the fans to continue to chant "YES!" for him at every turn, an alliance with Kane to work better than anyone expected it to, John Cena to take a shine to him, and for CM Punk to quit to get his storybook ending. Sometimes, the accidental path is the best way to the top rather than the best-laid plans.

Nothing encapsulated his essence than the infamous show where fans flooded the ring in an attempt to "Occupy RAW" and give The Authority a dose of people power (not to be confused with Big Johnny's People Power). Bryan's story wasn't told the best way at times, but this segment more than forgave the misgivings.
