Bryan has shown time and again that he has zero issues with putting over talent.

Back in the early 2000s, The Rock was known for putting over Superstars without hesitation and worries about what it could do to his career.

When he came back to WWE in 2003, The Rock gave a big rub to The Hurricane in what is now regarded as one of the most entertaining short-term feuds in WWE history. No one had imagined that a jobber could beat someone in the mold of The Rock.

Certain Superstars won't flinch one bit when it comes to putting over young guns or mid-carders who are in serious need of a push. Today, Daniel Bryan could be regarded as The Rock's equivalent when it comes to putting over stars who are way beneath him in terms of popularity and star power.


Despite being one of the biggest stars on the blue brand, Bryan never has issues taking losses from anyone, be it a top star or a mid-carder. In the following slideshow, we'll be taking a look at five mid-carders Daniel Bryan has put over.

#5 Ali


As a competitor on WWE 205 Live, Mustafa Ali got the attention of Vince McMahon, resulting in the boss moving him to the SmackDown Live brand. Reportedly, Daniel Bryan wanted a "hot young babyface" on the blue show, leading to Ali being chosen by the management.


Ali faced Bryan in his first SmackDown Live match, in a losing effort. Soon after, Ali was confirmed as a full-time SmackDown Live performer.

He teamed up with AJ Styles on an episode of SmackDown Live, facing Bryan and Andrade. The match ended with Ali pinning Bryan in a shocking victory for the former 205 Live Superstar. Ali had just pinned the WWE Champion, and the expression on his face told the whole story.
