We all (well, most of us) expected Daniel Bryan to win the Rumble. We knew in the back of our minds who would really win in really boring fashion, but we still had hope WWE's most beloved babyface would crawl out at #30 and save us from Batista and the WWE's corporate mentality. Then there was the Chamber, which, while we didn't expect Daniel Bryan to win, seeing Batista vs Orton essentially set in stone didn't really sit well in our stomach. It looks like after this entire chase, Daniel Bryan was stuck in the match with Triple H and left out of the main event, which wouldn't have been that bad of a thing had the ME not sucked hard. So there was still hope among the Bryan fans and the fan community... maybe beating Triple H would give Bryan an "in" to the main event, they say... maybe WM can still end with 80,000 people chanting "YES!" they say... but I've heard enough. We've all had hope for them putting Bryan in the ME, and it just caused us to feel let down by the last 2 PPV's. No reason to expect it this time, right? When was the last time WWE followed through on a storyline? And hey... facing Triple H is still a good spot for the guy, right? So guess it's time for the marks to shush and for reality to set in... ...OR MAYBE NOT! TAKE THAT "REALITY" AND SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS! Well played, WWE! You truly are the puppet master controlling the minds of us marks, just like you did in Chicago.
