Daniel Bryan Says WWE Would Love to Have Him Back In The Ring

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 11/10/17


In an interview with The Trentonian, Daniel Bryan spoke about the possibility of returning to the ring as a wrestler in the WWE or elsewhere. He has been out of action since 2015 when concussions forced him to retire. Since then, heís been the general manager of Smackdown Live, with rumros that once his contract with WWE expires he will return to the ring on the independent circuit. He has been cleared by several doctors but WWE hasnít taken the risk.

Bryan said: ďIím trying to get cleared as we speak. All my tests have come back fantastic, better than people who have never had any concussion-type stuff. But itís a weird thing. Weíre in a weird situation politically with the climate around concussions; right now, itís very difficult. WWE would love to have me back, but is that the smart thing for me as a business to bring me back? If I was to come back, and they let me back, would they get a lot of flak for it? They have a ton of stockholders that theyíre responsible for. Itís more than just, ĎIs he healthy to do it?í But thereís more than that to the whole situation. All the concussion doctors think that Iím healthy enough to do it, and that I should be able to do it ó well, I donít want to say all of them, Iím sure thereís somebody out there who doesnít think that ó but thereís a lot more than goes into it than just that. Thatís the unfortunate situation with giant corporations and big business in the United States.Ēď
