Seriously is he financially the biggest flop ever in recent wrestling history? why does CM Punk get all the criticism?

>headlines zero PPV's
>meekly accepts a postion as 4th wheel of BCC

when you invest big money in talent they're meant to improve business and exposure yet the opposite has happened

      Bryan's debut drew about 1. 2 million viewers. Now? no million...

      Not entirely his fault but surely he must should some of the blame. He was supposed ot be this big WWE star...

      He's been booked poorly... he need to be better politically and demand Tony Khan use him better. HIS IS HIS FAULT.

        AEW has proved they can draw 1.2 to 1.4 million viewers. When you sign Bryan, Punk or whoever you NEED to at least maintain that number. But you really SHOULD be increasing it and aiming for 1.5 to 1.8 million. Instead viewership DECREASED!

        The only blame he should get is not big leaguing Tony and telling him to stop jobbing him.
        No shit when you treat people like geeks and have them job nonstop they lose drawing power. No one you can think of, NO ONE, no matter how dimes you think they are, would survive that.

    Bryan is much better than Punk and Tony literally jobbed him from the second he came in while CM Punk got all the wins.

      I don’t think that matters to Bryan tbh. I mean Bryan wanted to do a masked luchador gimmick on dark to be a job guy.

    It's a tough pill to swallow but consider the following
    WWE
    >scrappy underdog babyface
    >beard
    >YES! chant

    AEW
    >superbadass who kicks peoples fucking heads in
    >No beard
    >No Yes chant

    His matches are more entertaining but he's basically a completely different entity than the one who got over as fuck a decade ago.

      Considering the American Dragon persona he resurrected for AEW was one of the most over indie wrestlers of all time I think his character is the least of his worries in AEW

      The superbadass midget could've drawn dimes though were he not some homosexual who just suddenly formed a random stable with Mox out of nowhere and then Cryan became the fucking job guy at that. You'd be thinking Yuta would eat all the pins since he's a fucking nobody. How the fuck does Tony book some dude who was red hot in the first ever aew tie with Omega, then months later Cryan is just booked to be a lower mid card loser kek. Sure shit like that happens at WWE all the time, but I was always told that gayew were different, when it's the same gay shit booking.

        They make their money from TV deals, and TV deals are decided based on the TV ratings. So it's extremely far from being irrelevant. You don't run your touring slapfight circus on t-shirt sales

    Like some people pointed out, you gotta be a bit of a selfmark to make it big in this business and Danielson simply doesn't have it, he's an indie darling at heart and it shows.

    For fucks sakes just give the guy a break. This isn't WWE they have a lot of bodies and they keep signing everyone and their grandma, the problem is with storylines, I was expecting BCC to take off but it kinda did nothing except some okay matches ( except of course fucking anarchy in the arena which was a huge treat )
