Daniel Bryan continues to fight for his WWE career.
The former WWE Champion has been an underdog for his entire career. From his days on the independent scene to when he arrived in WWE. Although the 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 SmackDown Live Commissioner will be leaving WWE after his contract with the company expires in September of 2018. If you recall, earlier this year, Bryan teased wrestling Cody Rhodes, who is the ROH World Champion and also competes in New Japan Pro Wrestling. The former WWE Champion was having some great matches in Ring of Honor before he signed with WWE.
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. It’s well known that WWE will not clear him to compete.
In an interview with The Trentonian, the SmackDown General Manager spoke about the possibility of returning to the ring as a wrestler in the WWE or elsewhere.
“All my tests have come back fantastic, better than people who have never had any concussion-type stuff. But it’s a weird thing. We’re in a weird situation politically with the climate around concussions; right now, it’s 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 they’re responsible for. It’s more than just, ‘Is he healthy to do it?’“
“There’s more than that to the whole situation. All the concussion doctors think that I’m healthy enough to do it, and that I should be able to do it — well, I don’t want to say all of them, I’m sure there’s somebody out there who doesn’t think that — but there’s a lot more than goes into it than just that. That’s the unfortunate situation with giant corporations and big business in the United States.”
