** He had a [[https://twitter.com/wwe/status/801651782938071040 moment]] when Wrestling/DeanAmbrose was dressed as [[Wrestling/JacquesRougeau the Mountie]] when he tells him to give him a message to Wrestling/AJStyles that the Mountie AlwaysGetsHisMan.

** Wrestling/TheMiz has become this again during Bryan's run as GM of Smackdown.

** Wrestling/TheMiz has become this again during Bryan's run as GM of Smackdown.''[=SmackDown=]''.



** His opening promo in the 01/13/2012 edition of Smackdown had him telling the crowd that, despite what it looked like, and no matter what people are saying in the message boards, he absolutely did not intend to win his first championship match against Wrestling/TheBigShow via disqualification. That disqualification win was all Wrestling/MarkHenry's fault, not his. While Henry indeed shoved him to the ground, it was because Bryan taunted him into attacking him.

** Bryan's first WWE match was a dark match on Heat (using the Smackdown set), as the (masked) American Dragon teaming with Shooter Schultz to fight and lose to Lance Cade and Brian Kendrick. All of them were unknowns at the time, and their crowd reactions were mostly limited to big spots. His last match was a tag match on Smackdown, in a winning effort with John Cena against Tyson Kidd and Cesaro. All of them were champions at the time, and were pretty well-known and received by the crowd.

* BullyingADragon: Spent a week or two leading up to the Rumble antagonizing Wrestling/TheBigShow, who was already somewhat irritated with Bryan in the first place. Then he bitch-slaps him on live [[Wrestling/{{WWESmackDown}} (sorta)]] television. Not the best course of action when the guy you're slapping around is well north of 400 pounds and gets to fight you in a steel cage over the weekend.

* TheCameo: At a Velocity (Smackdown's midcard show then) taping in 2003, he, under his real name, fought against Wrestling/JohnCena (then the heel Doctor of Thuganomics). To make it better, even though he obviously lost, a scheduling error resulted in WWE having him call the match, and so he got in plenty of offense.

* DontYouDarePityMe: How he reacted to both Kane and Randy Orton trying to tell him he wasn't the weak link of Team Hell No, or in general. Also, after a match on Raw between him and Orton had been called off due to concern for Bryan's well being, he accused Orton of this in one of their promos on the following episode of Smackdown.

* EvilVegetarian: His former role model gimmick could be basically summed up as Wrestling/CMPunk as a vegan instead of Straight Edge. Even CM Punk himself lampshaded it on an episode of Smackdown, stating that if Bryan shaved AJ's head, he'd sue for gimmick infringement.

** Began to turn after deciding to cash in Money in the Bank at TLC on a prone Big Show moments after he won it, after having put down others for doing such a thing in the past. Afterwards, he began antagonizing Show just a little by [[UnwantedAssistance continuing to interfere in his matches despite him asking him not to.]] After implying that Show DOES need his help, he was accused of having his title go to his head. Then, on the 1/6/12 SmackDown!, when finding himself struggling in a title defense against Big Show, he resorted to taunting Mark Henry into attacking him, causing the disqualification, so he could retain his title, after which, he celebrated like he had won the Super Bowl. Definitely [[TookALevelInJerkass taking a level in jerkass]] here...

** While he's no longer medically able to wrestle, he was able to come back in July 2016 to become the general manager of Wrestling/WWESmackDown. The huge pop from this announcement (out-popping '''''MickFoley''''' of all people!) showed that fans will still take Daniel Bryan any way they can get him.

* KickedUpstairs: A few months after he was forced to officially retire, the new Brand Extension kicked off, and Bryan was picked to be the General Manager of Smackdown. And yes (YES! YES!); he's still massively popular even in that role.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives one to Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio on the August 19, 2011 episode of Smackdown, pointing out how Del Rio's "prophesized" WWE Title victory was nothing special and all he'd done is the same old thing every other Money In The Bank winner had ever done.

** Cashed in his MITB briefcase against a prone Mark Henry to win the World Title on the 11/25/2011 Smackdown, only to have the victory and the match overruled by Teddy Long due to Henry not being medically cleared. The disappointment and reluctance on Bryan's face was palpable.

** After winning Smackdown's Money in the Bank contract, rather than go with the usual YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle cash in, he promised to cash in his title opportunity at Wrestlemania 28. He then tried to cashed it on the November 25th edition of Smackdown in 2011, but found out that Mark Henry wasn't cleared and thus it doesn't count. He would at that years TLC cash it in successfully.

* DemotedToExtra: The second half of his US Title reign was kinda lackluster, although admittedly that's mainly because most of the mid-carders on RAW, such as The Miz and Wrestling/JohnMorrison, got elevated into the main event scene at the same time, and he could only kill [[Wrestling/TedDibiaseJr Ted [=DiBiase=]]] so many times before it got boring. A much more straight example, however, is his and Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}' match for the US Championship getting knocked off the card for Wrestlemania 27. Then, [[=WrestleMania=] 28 happened.

* {{Scandalgate}}: "Tiegate", a derogatory nickname for his June 2010 firing after the infamous NXT Riot, wher he choked out ring announcer Justin Roberts with a tie. The sponsors had a fit, demanded he be fired, and the WWE had no choice but to comply. The decision infuriated nearly the entire wrestling community, not just the IWC, and numerous independent promotions (including ROH, which Bryan is considered one of the three "founding fathers" of) widely mocked it. After most of the heat abated, the WWE rehired him he was made the seventh member of Team Cena. The irony of it all is that it was probably the greatest thing to happen to his career, as the Nexus fell to pieces over the course of the rest of the year while the firing jump started Bryan's popularity. By 2014, he was the most over wrestler the company has had since Stone Cold and the Rock.

* {{Anticlimax}}: At the aptly named ''ROH Hell Freezes Over'' 2006 event, the three way anything goes match between Danielson, Homicide and Roderick Strong didn't last five minutes. Bryan now being champion of both FIP and ROH had impact for sure but the match itself was this trope.
