Taking out his return though for obvious reasons there is nobody that expected to see Daniel defeat AJ Styles to win the WWE Title. To add to it not only did Bryan win the title but he became the top heel in WWE after the fact becoming a totally different person than the one he was before. Not many people could've made it on the list just based on two months, but when you are told you'll never return only to return and win the World title within the first year after coming back. Bryan hasn't lost a step in the three years since he retired and it looks like well when Shawn Michaels cameback in 2002.
Overall I have been a fan of Daniel since his days in Ring of Honor and have loved watching his rise through the WWE. Though maybe I ranked him a bit high the unexpected nature of his return I think justifies him falling this high on this list. I hope that his current injury turns out to be nothing serious and that we can continue to see one of the best do what he does best. Where does Daniel Bryan rank on your Top 10 of 2018?
