Editorial Reviews

Review

“I knew at first glance what a talented young man he was...His work ethic, his integrity, his dedication, all of that stuff was all phenomenal.” ―Shawn Michaels on Daniel Bryan

“Daniel is the crossover of so many of those factors that make a superstar... He's got charisma. He's got personality. He's different...There's a truth to what he says.” ―Triple H on Daniel Bryan

“The crazy thing about Bryan making it as far as he has is that even his biggest fans never expected him to get as far as he did...nobody expected Bryan to be a WrestleMania main-eventer, much less the figure the show is built around.” ―BleacherReport.com

Great book. It was really hard to put down, I finished it within a couple days. It covers his entire career from wrestling school in Texas, touring in England, living in a gym, fighting in japan, the main event in ROH, and taking over the WWE. It is an incredible story and it couldn't happen to a better person. Highly recommend it.

My decision to buy and read this book was made on impulse shortly after I became aware of its existence. Despite being an avid professional wrestling/sports entertainment/whatever you want to call it fan for most of my life, I don't read these sorts of books often (the last one was by Adam Copeland, better known as Edge, and was published in 2004), though I do enjoy them. Pro wrestling, on the other hand, I haven't always enjoyed, and I don't think I would have gotten back into it or bought this book were it not for the WWE Network, which has allowed me to relive my favorite moments (mostly from the Attitude Era) and become acquainted with others from the past (like early Wrestlemanias) and present (like pretty much every match on NXT).

My subscription to the Network is really recent, which is important in the context of this review because sometime before The Great Khali became the "Punjabi Playboy" and up until the subscription, I stopped watching WWE programming, so many of the wrestlers and events mentioned in this book were ones I never saw, only heard about, since I kept somewhat up-to-date on my favorites (finding out that The Streak had ended was devastating; seeing it end on the Network a couple of weeks ago was worse) as their appearances declined along with my interest in storylines.

The talent currently known as Daniel Bryan was someone I didn't understand. I admired the beard but couldn't wrap my head around the popularity of the YES Movement or its leader, who was completely unknown to me (I've never had an interest in the indie scene, and I blame that on never knowing there was one until two years ago) in terms of what he had done or could do. That was my mindset before buying the book, of course, and I am glad I decided to change it.

I've read some wrestling bios in my day, and this is up there with the best. No drunken hijinks or pill-fueled adventures, just a guy who loves wrestling. The Craig parts are fairly embarrassing (we know Brie is attractive, you can stop reiterating that), but Bryan's stories more than make up for it.

Awesome book. Highly entertaining and you can tell he wasn't too worried about saying things WWE might not have liked. What made it more enjoyable was being there to experience Wrestlemania XXX. That made the diary pieces in the beginning of the chapter more interesting.

You get so much insight on the yes man Daniel Bryan. He is just a good guy that is very passionate about the world of wrestling. I read this book in like 2-3 sittings over 2 days. So many times I laughed out loud or was grossed out by the injuries. Very good book.

First things first (I'm the realest), I wanted to give this book five stars on the basis on how much I enjoy Bryan Danielson the man and the performer. I usually blow right through wrestling books but this one took forever to get through and I think the reason is because it feels like he's so limited in what he can talk about. The book focuses on Bryan's journey from indie hero to Wrestlemania 30 wherein he wins the world title but I feel like there's more to be said. What about the weeks since Wrestlemania where he was subsequently buried by management into a weak feud with Kane? What of his injuries since Wrestlemania? I feel like he's forced to hold back so much that he ends up sounding sanitized. I very much would like to see a version of this book after he and Bri are retired so that we can get the "full look" at his career. For now, this is a four star book that really doesn't add much to the WWE Network Documentary and that says a lot...

I really enjoyed this book. I liked getting to learn more about Bryan. He talks about his life before wrestling, his time on the independents, his relationship with Brie Bella and what it was like for him to get to WWE. The book was written before he was forced to retire due to his injuries.

Yes! is really an expanded version of the WWE 24/7 article chronicling what his life was like in the week leading up to his match against Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 30 in 2014. Each chapter starts with a black and white photo, a date and time, and a description by Craig Tello from WWE.com. After that, Bryan starts his story. I liked the format, but there is a lot of text per page. Craig's parts are kind of cheesy since he tried to fit as many of Bryan's nicknames in there as possible(Yes Man, Bearded Superstar, The Beard, etc). There's also a photo of Bryan on the bottom of the pages that does the Yes! chant when you flip them. I thought that was really neat.

Bryan comes across as being a very humble guy from modest beginnings who just really loves wrestling. You can feel how passionate he is about it and how much he loves going out there and having a great match, no matter how many people are in the audience. The way he talks about his wife, Brie, is very sweet. I learned more about her through this book too.

I loved getting more insight into moments that I saw on TV, like his time in NXT. I remember how excited I was when they asked him what he was going to do since he lost the show and he said "Daniel Bryan might be done, but Bryan Danielson--God knows what's going to happen to him." I've been a fan of his since 2003 when I saw him in Ring of Honor, so it was very cool to me that he used his real name.
