Daniel Bryan continues to tease that he will wrestle again.
It’s no secret that there is speculation that the SmackDown Live General Manager 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.
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.
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.
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.
More transcripts from his recent appearance on Busted Open Radio has surfaced and he gave some insight into his in-ring future whether that be in the WWE or another promotion.
"I just did an interview in the ring with Sami Zayn a couple of weeks ago and you know that we could just go out there and the crowd would eat it up and it would be awesome," Bryan said. "And the same thing with the Miz last year.
There's that very real disdain between the two of us that we could have really made something special. So missing out on those little things, part of me dies inside, but then I look at the bigger picture and I know that this is my role for right now. And come September, one way or another, I'll be wrestling again. Or, if a test says that I'm not, then I won't."
"The frustrating part is it doesn't necessarily have to do with how I actually am medically," Bryan said. "It's a lot of, I don't want to say political, but it's just the situation around concussions at the moment.
Everything is so fear-based. The media is fear-based, all that kind of stuff. If this would have happened 10 years ago, for better or worse, they would have just put me right back out there. If this were to happen 10 years from now, it would be a different story because they've have better testing. They're working on better testing now and you'd have a better understanding of where we're at as far as concussions go."
