    This would be a fairly entertaining match. For all the crap you can give X-Pac about being pushed far too often, he had talent, and as a result of those unnecessary pushes, he has a decent resume.

    Bryan though is a multi time world champion, something Waltman cannot say. Bryan also has arguably the best Wresltmania moment of all time.

    Give these guys ten minutes and it would be solid, but Byran would make X-Pac tap.

    Daniel Bryan's quest for the big one from Summerslam 2013 to Wrestlemania 30 (YES!tlemania) alone is more memorable and of more significance than anything X-Pac has ever done. Don't misunderstand me, I found Sean entertaining, particularly as a member of DX, but it still fails to compete with D-Bry.
    Vote Daniel Bryan.

    Exactly.

    In terms of accolades and accomplishments, The Yes! Movement is enough for Daniel Bryan to go over X-Pac.

    Even if we ignore the stats of accolades, Bryan would surely go over X-Pac considering his solid in-ring work. So it would end in less than 10 minutes where X-Pac has to tap out to Bryan considering Bryan as a good submission specialist too.

    I've grown to become a Waltman fan, but that doesn't change that he is simply out of his league here. It would be an entertaining as all hell match, but there's not a scenario where Bryan doesn't outclass him and win with the tap out.

    Daniel Bryan wins undoubtedly. The road to Wrestlemania 30 itself just signifies the talent he is. There's no one better had connected with the crowd in the past few years than Daniel Bryan. Even on some football matches, there were the Yes chants! This would be a fun match but DB will make X-Pac to tap out, just as how everyone predicted.

    You'd have to be as high as X-Pac to see this going any other way. I loved X-Pac when I was a kid, I really did and I think his tag team with Kane may be one of my favourites ever. However, he's just not as good by any stretch of the imagination and would lose here.

    Ultimately, there's a reason Daniel Bryan is married to Brie Bella and X-Pac is making video tapes of himself bumming Chyna.

    In Waltman's defense, if I were going to have a tape out there of one of those two ladies, with myself, it'd be Chyna. The Bellas never did much for me, and it helps that Chyna was around during my pubescent years.

    But, you're right on everything else, but you may underrate him a little. I think he was at his best against smaller guys, so this would be a solid match back and forth, but we all know Bryan wins in the end.

    Bryan takes this without too much of a fight. X-Pac is probably best known as the little buddy of Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash, though that's not to say he didn't have talent.

    Still, there's no way I can vote for a guy who's most talked about moment was his upset victory over Razor Ramon in the early days of Raw over a multi-time World Champion and most universally over wrestler we've seen in WWE for a good decade or longer.

    If Waltman had not become a drug addict\alcoholic shell of himself, then his career would have gone better. The guy could wrestle better than people give him credit for & is overshadowed by the above and his alignment in the Kliq.


    Yet potential and alternate life choices do not make a difference against someone like Bryan. The guy worked his ass off & gained a huge following before stepping foot in McMahon's ring. From there he made history in his short time & besides the WM moment to end all moments, he was a solid wrestler & was part of some of the funniest skits ever when paired with Kane. Daniel Bryan is just flat out better than X-Pac.

    I usually like to write a little paragraph on how this match would go but there is simply no need here. Daniel Bryan is 10 times the wrestler than Waltman was or even would be. In every single way imaginable, Bryan takes this match.

    Waltman was good, Daniel Bryan is better.

    X-Pac was a really entertaining mid-card talent who was great as a member of DX and in his tag-team with Kane. Bryan headlined WrestleMania in one of the greatest storylines of the last decade, and had a better tag team with Kane.

    His career is one of the all time greats, and outdoes Waltman on every level. That isnt a criticism of X-Pac, as DB would go over 90% of people in this match.

    Daniel Bryan is the best technical wrestler ever (except for maybe Kurt Angle or Chris Benoit).

    He headlined WrestleMania 30, beat 3 future Hall of Famers in the same night (Triple H, Batista, and Randy Orton), and became WWE Champion.

    He is one of the most over wrestlers ever. Listen to the reaction Daniel Bryan gets in the following three videos. No one ever cheered or got behind X-Pac like this.

    Meanwhile, X-Pac is little more than a career mid-carder. He is best known for being in two of the greatest factions of all time (n.W.o. and DX), BUT no one cared about him. It was all about Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H. This is the easiest decision in the entire tournament.
