Recently during an episode of Talking Smack, The Miz pulled off one of the most impressive promos in the WWE in recent years.
Directed towards another person that was on the show, former WWE superstar Daniel Bryan, the Intercontinental Champion labeled the SmackDown General Manager a coward as he called him out for being soft in his style and not taking risks in the ring. Miz laid further insults onto Bryan, so much so that he walked off the set.
This promo and the talk following it has lead to some people believing that the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion would come out of retirement to take on The Miz one-on-one in the middle of the ring, but according to reports, this will not happen.

PWInsider were asked in a recent Q&A if Bryan would be put in any physical alterations like SmackDown commissioner Shane McMahon when he was F5'ed by Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.
They asked if putting the 35-year-old in a physical alteration is strictly off limits, or is it something the WWE is keeping in their back pocket to use when the time is right, to which they replied: "Internally, WWE considers any Daniel Bryan physical activity as part of their events off limits."
It really comes as no surprise that the former wrestler will not be allowed to compete in the ring once more. With the amount of concussions he has had in the past, you can see why the WWE will not be putting him in a match anytime soon. Despite him being a draw, it's too much of a risk as another big bump could cause serious damage.
Fans would love to see Bryan compete in the ring one more time, but in a scenario like this, the risk outweighs the benefits.
