For someone who has only been a part of WWE for a few years, Daniel Bryan has endured a number of highs and lows during his career already.
From working his way up to be being the most popular WWE Superstar and ultimately, WWE World Heavyweight Champion to falling victim to a number of recurring injuries, Daniel Bryan has been through so much over the past few years.
With this in mind, Bryan recently spoke with the Ashbury Park Press in order to promote an appearance and, when asked what he would say was the highlight of his career so far, his answer may well surprise many.
He replied as follows:
"It was just supposed to be an interview between Triple-H, Randy Orton and John Cena, but the fans there weren’t having it. They just started chanting ‘Yes!’ and ‘Yes!’ and ‘Yes!’ and ‘Daniel Bryan!’ and ‘Yes!’ and more Yes-ing to the point that they were ruining the segment."
When watching this segment back; which can be seen below, it is clear to see why this is the 34-year-old's favourite moment of his career so far. Several of the biggest names in WWE at the time including two of the authority members through Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are in the ring, but all eyes are on everyone's favourite 'Yes!' man.

Given his reply to this question as well as what he has been through during his time as a professional wrestler, it is very emotional to look back over this segment and to see not only D-Bry's reaction but the other approving smiles his fellow WWE superstars give.
It seems as though there was nothing Triple H could say while on the microphone which would have stopped the crowd in attendance declaring their support for Daniel Bryan, who despite spending less time in the ring lately because of recurring injury woes, still has a huge following and deservedly so.
This moment, which took place in Seattle - somewhere close to where Bryan grew up - is an understandably poignant one for many reasons and ultimately proves why many members of the WWE Universe see Daniel Bryan as a cut above the rest. He has a connection with fans that is so genuine and so admirable that a moment like this would mean more to him than achieving the biggest win in professional wrestling by becoming WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
In addition, John Cena comes out during the segment to confront Randy Orton and presents Bryan as someone who was someone who worked extremely hard to be where he is today.
Cena also asked Bryan whether his mother or father had any kind of connection to WWE or whether they were WWE superstars themselves, which Bryan explained made this moment even more memorable:
"I said that no, my dad is a log scaler and logging is big in the area, so then everybody cheered. It’s mostly special because that was the last time my dad got to see me wrestle before he passed away. And not only that, but he got mentioned.
"For me, that’s a very special moment. That’s my favorite, even more so than WrestleMania XXX."
This only further confirms how down-to-earth Daniel Bryan is and always has been as despite being one of the biggest and best names in WWE history, he is a genuine and humble human being.
