[size=xx-small]Kane is super smelly[/size] I was reading a post on the Layfield Report (JBL's website it's a decent hub for various information) and a piece about Daniel Bryan really caught my eye. In it was the following quote : This got me thinking, Bryan whilst always a good mic worker never really was that guy who got you to hang onto his every word, he was enjoyable but never excelled at it like others did. An example is here : I'm not talking about character as well he didn't have any in this segment but he uses the term "you mean" alot as if it's a placeholder for him to think about what he's trying to say. He sounds nervous as if he's scared of performing in front of the crowd. Compare this to his current day promo's his voice seems more stable and he uses less placeholders in his work, it's like the fear is gone of being on the big time ( as much as we all love the American Dragon, performing in front of 1000s must be much more intimidating than the 100s he was used to.) Now this could have been a natural adaption sure however I believe an important part was the comedic traits the WWE gave him, it forced him out of his comfort zone and to work something new. Once he found at that was OK he seemed less nervous of the big crowds and more in control of his character integration with the audience. So do you think the comedy character has helped Daniel Bryan as a performer?
