There is no doubt in anyone's mind that if Daniel Bryan wasn't injured last May, he would definitely gone on to be the superstar of the year in WWE.

"Occupy Raw" was one of the biggest things to happen to the company last year and led to WWE changing their plans for the main event of Wrestlemania 30.

Daniel Bryan revealed in an interview with Newsday this week that he was originally scheduled to face Sheamus on the grandest stage of them all in a match that would have been placed fifth or sixth on the card.

He also claims that it was the "Yes Movement" that lead to WWE changing their mind and allowing the former WWE Champion to realise his dream.

He said: "I can tell you 100 percent for a fact that I was not supposed to be in the main event at WrestleMania 30. That is one of the coolest things about WWE and wrestling in general. The fans have this very unique voice, and this very unique power, and in no other sport and no other form of entertainment can the fans make their voices heard and it affect change." 

The "Yes Movement" was heard all over the world as Daniel Bryan's "Yes" chant became a recognised symbol in many other main stream sports. 

Thanks to this Bryan went on the win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania, after he had already defeated COO Triple H earlier in the night.

Sadly, he was forced to rescind the Championship a few months later when it was made apparent that he was unable to compete in his current physical condition. But Bryan spent the next nine months in rehab and fighting against his injury in order to return to WWE. 

Bryan returned to the company a few weeks ago and announced his participation in the Royal Rumble match and also took part in his first match on Smackdown last week where he showed no evident signs of ring rust. 

He now has to face again Kane next week with his Royal Rumble entry on the line as he faces his former team mate in what is set to be a brutal match between the two.
