"Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Daniel Bryan, & Sheamus On Whether "YES!" Is Replacing "WHAT?"

The official WWE website has an article with quotes from Daniel Bryan, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, & Sheamus over the "YES!" phenomenon, and whether it is becoming the new "WHAT?"

When asked via Twitter if Austin believes that "WHAT?" is being replaced, Austin replied "YES! YES! YES!"

Daniel Bryan weighed in with the excerpt below:

"I think [Austin] was probably just placating fans. There’s a percentage of the WWE Universe that likes things they’re not supposed to like, and they’re responsible for the 'YES!' chants."

Sheamus had the following to say:

"YES!" chants show how vocal our fans are. Whether they’re getting behind Daniel Bryan or whether they’re mocking him ... it just shows that the WWE Universe wants to be heard.

    Yess might be the new what, but it won’t permanently replace it, all Austin has to do is show up again and the chant allways comes back, but it has been a whe since Austin has made an appearance so the yess chant rules.

      Austin will "What?" the crowd and the crowd will go "Yes! Yes! Yes!"

    The yes chants are replacing the “woooo!”s. Not the “what”

      The woo chants are only used during knife edge chops. The what chants were usually used in between lackluster promos. The yes chants were different in that you hear it no matter where & when.

      • Zoran

        Actually, Dangerous Lee is partly correct, if you look over Bryan's match on Raw, there were a few knife edge chops thrown in amongst the other strikes and were met with "yes" chants.

    • Blazeking

      "Wooooo" is always used before the show starts. That will never be replaced.


    I'm mocking Bryan and respecting him at the same time:-}


    I hope for the 2012 Draft Brock Lesnar will be drafted to SmackDown,and beat Sheamus to be the new World Heavyweight Champion:-}

  • Da KiDD

    It won't replace it……the "what" chants have been prevalent for 10 years strong now. That's insane. I just can't imagine the "Yes!" chants going into 2022
