So yesterday, a tweet was sent out from the account of WWE’s Daniel Bryan. It read as follows:
Due to medical reasons, effective immediately, I am announcing my retirement. Tonight on Raw, I’ll have a chance to elaborate.
It’s kinda been the elephant in the room for the last few months as after being the conquering underdog hero at WrestleMania XXX, almost two years ago now, then going out with a nerve injury only a couple months afterwards. He made a return to action at last year’s Royal Rumble, made the run to WrestleMania 31, where he won the Intercontinental Title in a ladder match and was set to start to rebuild the perceived value of that title following WrestleMania, only he didn’t. He suffered a concussion and ended up having to forfeit the title, and has been out of action ever since.
