One of the most lingering questions surrounding the WWE world is whether or not current SmackDown Live General Manager and former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan will ever wrestle for the company again.
For the past several years Bryan has been battling a nasty neck and shoulder injury that put his in-ring career in jeopardy. Initially the belief that was due to the significance of the injury, Bryan would never be able to wrestle again as the risk was far too high. Now with the birth of his first child you'd think Bryan would want to avoid any further risk.
It turns out, "The Leader Of The YES! Movement" may just get his chance at wrestling once again. During a recent interview with Busted Open during WWE Night at a New Jersey Devils game last week, the SmackDown Live GM opened up about his chances of competing again.
While Bryan believes there's a great chance doctors clear him to wrestle again, he doesn't hold the same high hopes that WWE will clear him as well (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"I think there is an 85% chance that I will wrestle again, my wife says it's 100%," Bryan said. "That's not the case, if I get a test that says I shouldn't wrestle again, then I won't wrestle again.
"So I think there is an 85% chance that I will wrestle again. I would say that there is about a 20% chance that WWE will clear me to wrestle. It's a small chance, but it's not an impossible chance.
"I know that they [WWE] want me to wrestle," Bryan continued. "There's just a lot of stuff that has to happen for me to be able to wrestle."
Bryan also discussed possibly wrestling on the indies, but believes wrestling there would be a much more rigorous schedule than what he could get in WWE:
"One of the things about an independent schedule is that it would be easier," Bryan said. "But I think if WWE were to clear me, they'd give me a little bit of a lighter schedule.
"We're not running as hard as we were in 2013 where you're doing both shows [RAW and SmackDown]."
What are your thoughts on Bryan saying that he's 85 percent sure he's going to wrestle inside the ring again? Do you think that he could wrestle for the WWE again? Or will he likely take off to the indies in order to continue his in-ring career? Have YOUR say in the comments section below, and the fourth episode of GiveMeSport’s WWE podcast is here!
