One thing I read and I don’t remember if Steve mentioned it and I just forgot was about ,bend direction. When bending the middle strings, bend away from the next string to be played.I see players bending strings 3 and 4,  I just never thought about why they would bend it up or down.

If you're on High E or B you have to bend up or you come off the fretboard 

If you're on A or Low E you have to bend down or come off the fretboard 

G and D can be bent either way, but it's easier to push up then it is to pull down

Your hand is also freer to vibrate/vibrato when pushing up
