>tfw Zack may actually end up the Michaels of this photo
CM Punk jannettied himself harder than anyone ever had before in his UFC fights. Bryan is either going to become a vegetable or kill his family.
And who will still be there wrestling for the WWE?
The Broski.
Woo. Woo. Woo. You know it!

Who would have thought that Cody and Kofi would wind up becoming the most relevant members of this group in 2019?

That's not from Wrestlemania 2001.

WWE changed for their worst that year. Other than the Rock/Cena stuff, literally nothing from that year stands out.

>loses the title a day later to Orton
>Orton beats him clean in the first PPV match
>Christian is now Orton's punching bag for the next few months
>turns heel and wins the title by DQ
>loses it a month later to Orton
>Del Sleepo wins a world title in the same PPV
>becomes Sheamus' punching bag for the rest of the year
>comes back and wins the IC title but then gets injured again after a couple months
>turns out his head is fucked to shit and he can't wrestle for more than 2 months per year due to concussions
>unceremoniously retires at the end of 2014, no retirement angle, just WWE going "Oh yeah, he's retired now" in some throwaway episode of Raw
Is there more of a depressing way for a wrestler's career to end?

>>7847685
At least Christian held the world title twice. Rikishi was worse
>Randomly thrown into the main event scene because Vince is a retard
>Works with guys like Austin, HHH, & Rock
>Gets shoved down the card a month before X7
>Gets injured shortly thereafter
>Comes back at the end of the year with zero heat
>Does nothing of value for the next two years
>Wins the tag title with Scotty 2 Hotty
>Drops them just 2 months later
>Gets released for being a bloated fatass after numerous requests to drop some weight
What a run

Daniel Bryan is so based lads

Ryder's remains the single most systematic burial in the history of wrestling.

WWE deserves to die and Ryder deserves to sink with the ship for being to much of a mark to ever leave.
>>
>>7848751
the problem with ryder is he knows he doesn't have value outside of the wwe and gets enough money to fuck around with vintage wrestling figures
>>
if bryan never got cleared again that entire picture would be cursed
>>
>>7846853
You know it bro.
>>
>>7846850
Gotta build a new audience, catering to strictly boomers got RAW 1.8m
>>
>>7848751
sandow and kennedy have shown ryder to stay and make his shows and be a mark with money.
>>
>>7846846
Should be Low Ki or Chris Hero in Ryder's place.
>>
>>7846890
How relevent were the US and IC belts during this period?
>>
>>7848751
So you're a mark for staying with WWE and making money, or a mark for leaving WWE for less money to have, "muh better matches?"

Honest question.
>>
>>7846846
Can't believe I was only in high school during this era
>>
>>7849318
And now catering to zoomers is killing the entire company
>>
>>7846984
And none of them drew a single dime in their whole careers
>>
>>7846846
>>7846890
stopped watching wrestling in this era because it was absolute shit
>>
>>7846853
>may actually end up
he always was the Michaels
>>
>>7849355
The latter allows you to build your name brand and the chance to eventually be worth even more money.
Either way, your mistaken. It's not that he's a mark for himself, Ryder is a mark for WWE.

He's what you get when an actual full out E-Drone becomes a wrestler.
>>
Original LIJ?
>>
>>7846846
I never really considered Ryder part of the faggot indie darling crowd.
>>
>>7846850
They were a lot higher than they are now fucktard.

I don't mind Bryan, but I don't like him either. I admit that CM Punk makes me sick though.

Bryan is based

>>7848751

Im just happy for him. He gets the money to live comfy life with minimal effort now that the roster is so bloated. He deserves it
