But he's not bitter, since he got a cut of the space cash.

Did Travis Jackson change a WWE storyline?

A few weeks ago, Daniel Bryan became a bad guy on WWE, despite being a fan favorite for the YES! chant. Then, suddenly, he turned into a good guy again on Monday's episode of RAW. Did national attention of Travis Jackson's YES! chant at the basketball game change the direction of the storyline? SB Nation's wrestling blog thinks it might have. (They later tweeted, "Thank you, Michigan State."). Bryan followed Jackson on Twitter shortly after the Ohio State game. Video of the face turn is here, if you're interested. UPDATE: It really DID change the storyline, according to Wrestling Inc.
