USA Today ran a story focusing on Daniel Bryan’s YES! Chant and how it has infiltrated sports and pop culture. The piece has been liked/shared over 2000 times on Facebook/Twitter.
In the article, Bryan says, “People like to do it because it’s fun and it’s interactive … When you’re part of an arena, a whole arena with thousands upon thousands of people doing it, it’s very, very surreal … I don’t know what is going on in my world that this happened … Now these basketball teams are doing something that I made popular. How this all happened is surreal.”
Even more interestingly, Stephanie McMahon herself is quoted in the article, breaking from her on-screen anti-Bryan Authority character and stating, “Throughout WWE’s history our Superstars and their catchphrases have often become part of the pop-culture lexicon, and Daniel Bryan’s ‘Yes!’ chant is the latest example of this phenomenon … WWE is all about having fun, bringing people together and making them smile, and the Yes! Movement accomplishes all of this at WWE events and beyond.”
