Dear Mr. McMahon,
On behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and the
WWE fans among our more than 2 million members and supporters, I’m
writing to toss our name into the ring as yet another proponent of the push to
bring back Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson). I might not personally carry the
same clout as other Bryan supporters like John Cena or Shawn Michaels
(although I do consider myself “The Showstopper of PETA”), but I am, along
with many of my colleagues, a huge Daniel Bryan fan, not only because he
humiliated the Miz and Michael Cole a few weeks back on Raw but also
because he’s vegan.
Lots of athletes, including baseball slugger Prince Fielder, the NBA’s Raja
Bell, MMA fighters K.J. Noons and Mac Danzig, and Olympic Legend Carl
Lewis, show that vegetarians often leave meat-eaters in the dust, gnawing on
their greasy chicken wings as they wonder what hit them. But Bryan represents
the quintessential vegan badass. He knows that unlike WWE superstars,
animals beaten to a pulp by the meat industry don’t want to be there. The worst
Hell in a Cell match is nothing compared to what animals in slaughterhouses
go through, such as having their throats cut and being scalded alive and
dismembered, often while still conscious. Even Mick Foley couldn’t withstand
that kind of abuse. Just by being vegan, Bryan saves more than 100 animals a
year, a feat far more impressive than any of Jack Swagger’s
“accomplishments.” Savvy athletes go vegan for the health benefits, too, as
they slash their risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
So what do you say, Mr. McMahon? Bring back Bryan and let him prove that
he belongs. And maybe there could even be a storyline romance between
Bryan and the gorgeous vegan diva Tiffany! (Who, in your PETA fans’
opinion, deserves another shot at Layla.)
