Daniel Bryan continues to tease fans about returning to Ring of Honor (ROH).
The SmackDown Live Commissioner has teased in the past about returning to Ring of Honor once his contract with WWE expires next year. Bryan, who was forced to retire last year due to his history with concussions, has talked about wrestling again in the past. Whether that be in WWE or in another promotion. If you recall, Bryan wrote the following on Twitter after Cody Rhodes won the ROH World Title at the Best in The World PPV (pay-per-view) event earlier this year.
“Congratulations! Being @ringofhonor champ for 462 days transformed me as a wrestler and was one of the best times in my career. Enjoy it! Side note, if you hold the @ringofhonor title 462 days, I may have to come after you, which would be 9/28/18. Be forewarned!”
He wrestled for Ring of Honor from 2002 to 2009 and has been recognized as a "Founding Father" of the promotion. During his time with the promotion, he was a one-time ROH World Champion, as well the final Pure Wrestling Champion (unifying the Pure title with the World title). He was the first winner of ROH's annual Survival of the Fittest tournament in 2004.
Although the sports entertainment company wasn’t fully behind him at first, he has overcome the challenges that were put in front of him and became a fan favorite. Despite that his run on top in WWE was short-lived, he no doubt made a mark on the history of the sports entertainment company. It’s believed that the former WWE Champion will be leaving WWE after his contract with the company expires in September of 2018.
Rhodes taunted Bryan by doing his "Yes!" chants and used Bryan's "Yes Lock" during his match with Minoru Suzuki at Friday's ROH Death Before Dishonor XV pay-per-view. Bryan responded via Twitter by writing the following:
“A REAL message would have been actually forcing Minoru Suzuki to tap out. I may have to show him how it's done... #trolling4life.”
This is not surprising to hear due to the circumstances that are around Bryan right now. With him teasing leaving WWE when his contract ends with the sports entertainment company, it shouldn’t shock fans to see him compete again the squared circle outside of the WWE banner.
