Sad news for Daniel Bryan fans. We won’t know the details until he appears on Raw tonight, but rumors are that he has been cleared by multiple doctors, but the WWE and their doctors don’t want to take any chances. Concussions are so in the spotlight the past few years. Daniel has no choice, but to retire from in ring action in WWE. Will he go back to the Indies? Will he work as a trainer in NXT? You know hes going to be involved in wrestling in one way or another. Thank you for bringing some must needed excitement and entertainment in the WWE.
Due to medical reasons, effective immediately, I am announcing my retirement. Tonight on Raw, I'll have a chance to elaborate. #gratitude
