* '''TheAce''': One of the biggest in the industry.



* '''{{Badass}}''': One of the biggest in the industry.
** BadassBeard: During his Wrestling/{{WWE}} run, he's grown a scruffy beard, which combined with his rather drab appearance adds to his [[GranolaGirl Granola Guy]] gimmick. Post-his initial FaceHeelTurn, he stopped shaving it. It's now bordering on ''Series/DuckDynasty'' levels in length and wildness, and ''was'' probably the most robust beard in WWE... until Wrestling/TheWyattFamily showed up.
** BadassLongcoat: His scarlet boxing style entrance coat, which he of course [[TheCoatsAreOff removes]] before a fight.
** BadassNormal: In the Wrestling/{{WWE}}s over the top characters, like the outright supernatural Wrestling/{{Kane}} and Wrestling/TheUndertaker, the sociopath Wrestling/RandyOrton, cartoonishly villainous LargeHam Wrestling/ChrisJericho, DarkMessiah and StraightEdgeEvil Wrestling/CMPunk, he is just a talented competitor, that honestly wouldn't be out of place in MixedMartialArts. Hell, he started out as an {{Expy}} of Wrestling/ChrisBenoit, added some jujitsu and then trained with Creator/RandyCouture. Then he became the World Heavyweight Champion.

** 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 [[StopHelpingMe 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...

* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: In his book, Daniel Bryan revealed that after the match with Orton where he got injured, he was so furious that his match was stopped that he got into an angry argument with Triple H backstage, with the two of them nearly coming to blows. And after that, he even started shouting at Vince who came to try to calm him down. Granted, Bryan did eventually apologize and make up with them but still, not many wrestlers can say they've told off both Triple H and Vince one after another in real life.

* DentedIron: Bryan missed most of 2014 due to injury, and it now looks like 2015 will be a repeat, assuming Bryan's in-ring career isn't over altogether.

* ImportantHaircut: At his retirement, Bryan sported a new haircut and a shorter beard. It turns out that he donated his hair to the Locks of Love charity.

He is frequently regarded by wrestling critics as one of the best overall professional wrestlers in the world today, having won ''Wrestling/TheWrestlingObserverNewsletter'''s "Best Technical Wrestler" and "Most Outstanding Wrestler" awards several times. He was trained by a who's who of wrestling, including certified legend Wrestling/ShawnMichaels; former [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/ic.html WWE Intercontinental Champion]] Wrestling/WilliamRegal once said that the greatest accomplishment of his career was having a hand in his training.

** The Final Countdown Tour. While it was great to see him finish his [[Wrestling/RingOfHonor ROH]] career with a win, you had to feel at least slightly bad for Nigel [=McGuinness=], knowing it was his final show as well, and [=McGuinness=] didn't get a whole frickin' tour named after him like he did.

* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: As ROH World Champion, whether he was a face or heel depended entirely on who he was wrestling and where. He always wrestled heel in Chicago, notably against Wrestling/RoderickStrong and Wrestling/ColtCabana; he wrestled Nigel [=McGuinness=] twice as a face, and then as a heel when they wrestled in Britain; he wrestled face against Wrestling/ChrisHero, Sonjay Dutt and The Embassy(Alex Shelley, Jimmy Rave-though he was heel against Shelley in the Hammerstein Ballroom); and he was always unquestionably a heel when wrestling Homicide. After that, he remained a face - and like Wrestling/RicFlair, his heel mannerisms became face mannerisms due to how integral they had become to [[TheGimmick his gimmick]].

**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.

** His career in general. While it ended sooner than he would have liked and he'll have to find a new passion now, he still got do what he loved for sixteen years. He'll forever be immortalized in history with his countless accomplishments, always beloved and remembered well by fans. Most of all, while he'll never completely heal, he'll live a long life and have his HappilyEverAfter with Brie, and be able to spend more time with his future children. While Bryan's career didn't end the way he wanted he wanted it to, he still had a lot to be proud of and went out with his head held high.
