Yeah, I'd like to see a serious Bryan. I'd say he's about the same level as Sheamus, they haven't really done much with him with his current feud.
He doesn't have to be serious, I like his sneaky humour.
I'm interested to see where they take Sheamus next actually, he's just lost 3 times in a row to The Shield. I expected either him or Orton to turn heel last night, but instead it was Big Show (which is fine, he wasn't really a face anyway, it was temporary, and his heel character is awesome).
Now that Wrestlemania is over, hopefully WWE can move away from the special attraction old timers and focus on the week-in, week-out guys like Bryan, Sheamus, Ziggler, Cesaro, Sandow, PTP etc.
