Yes!: My Improbable Journey to the Main Event of WrestleMania
MacDara Conroy's review
Jul 27, 2015
Yes! is a curiously slight volume considering Daniel Bryan's storied career in the pro wrestling business, but being a WWE-sanctioned book it was bound to be fed through their filter, and cast his many years on the indie circuit and in Japan as mere preparatory work before hitting the 'big time'. Sure, he's allowed some leeway in his interpretation of events, because otherwise would make the exercise entirely pointless, but he's an avowedly private and guarded individual, which doesn't leave much space for a revelatory memoir on a par with Mick Foley's Have A Nice Day. That's not helped by a structure that interweaves Bryan's memories leading up to WrestleMania XXX with WWE.com editor Craig Tello's laboured 'PR pretending to be a literary sportswriter' prose, waffling on the behind-the-scenes happenings at that very event. With a more encouraging editor, there's a better book in Bryan, I'm sure.
