I hope it's a legit retirement because I don't want to see him lower himself to indy leagues.

He came back from a serious injury, continued to wrestle the same old style and ended up injured again after no time at all with what is now an even more serious injury.

I'd say that and apparently Coach on ESPN saying it's not a work, that it's for real and not a way to go elsewhere to carry on.

I think maybe a real retirement. I would love to see him keep going but if he has an Edge or SCSA tyoe of injury then he has to step down....I can see him HoF'd next year if legit

It is a Steve Young kind of injury. Former 49er Hall of Fame quarterback, had to retire too young when he felt fine in 1999ish because of a mild concussion that was the straw that broke the camels back. He was told if he were knocked out again he may not wake up at all. Today Steve Young feels it a whole lot more than he did then and has stated that he is thankful he was forced into retirement and that he can't imagine how much worse it might be for him today had he not.

Watched Raw and have to say fair play to WWE, a very moving and well put together show long tribute to Bryan's career. Daniel Bryan was given the top spot of the show and granted a lot of time to deliver his retirement speech which was just as it should be when a top talent has to call time on his/her career.

Enjoyed his speech, he came across as genuine and very grateful for everything and was also nice to see him be so positive about his career being cut so short by focusing on the other good things in his life and reflecting on all his great career moments.

At 34 Bryan's career has ended at a age where many talents are only just making it, some even later like AJ Styles who at 38 is only now getting his big break, but in a way it almost seems fitting that Bryan went out having achieved his dream by winning the World title in the main-event at Wrestlemania, he also changed the whole dynamic of WWE by opening the eyes of management to let in smaller indy standouts like Sami Zayn and AJ Styles, these are guys that ten years ago WWE probably wouldn't have even looked at once.

So while I've never been the biggest fan of Daniel Bryan I respect him as a decent human being and for what he achieved in his short WWE career and how he's paved the way for the more ordinary man to catch a break in WWE.

The best part was him on about starting a family, the crowd chanting YES and him replying with that's what she says. That geeky comeback fits him perfectly. Then the THAT'S WHAT SHE SAYS chant.

Despite storyline wise being a B plus player, E made his retirement night feel like a big thing with the videos all through the broadcast and him getting more time than needed at the end of the show.

To retire through no choice of your own at only 34 will have been hard for him to accept as it's the only thing he's interested in.

How many fucks DOES Daniel Bryan give?

BTW, it's sounding more and more legit that Daniel Bryan not only will not be renewing his contract with the WWE but will be returning to Ring of Honor as soon as he is able.

He has been going to many doctors again lately who have not been affiliated with the WWE and has been cleared every single time to return to wrestling. So WWE should be on notice at this point, because letting Daniel Bryan return to wrestling and for a company like either Ring of Honor or Global Force Wrestling would be a very bad idea. It would be very close to letting Hulk Hogan go to WCW. Not only do fans love Daniel Bryan but wrestlers do too, and he could easily entice more wrestlers to "jump ship" while creating his own ratings boost, and of course the jumping ship would create a further ratings boost.

It is NOT unreasonable to think he could start a cascading (no pun intended Aberdeen Washington, in the Cascade mountains? haha) event that would start a new wrestling war. 

WWE the company is fan-fucking-tastic, but their product is arguably the worst it has ever been in modern history. Meanwhile RoH, with it's inclusion on the FITE app, and it's various syndication on easily accessible networks means all it really needs is hype to grow, change, and evolve into something much better.

WWE had very seriously better nip this in the bud, because there are a lot of guys, like say Dolph Ziggler, Sami Zayn and others (even Randy freaking Orton) who would not only fit in extremely well in RoH and who are not doing much on WWE TV of any real quality, but who are highly talented performers the fans want to like, that could conceivably jump ship because in RoH all their problems could be solved.

If Global Force Wrestling could grab a handful of top talents not being utilised properly in WWE along with a few top free agents they could have a shot of actually becoming competition.

Just as a talking point let's say GFW sign Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, Hideo Itami, the Ascension, Shelton Benjamin, Jack Swagger, Ryback, Wade Barrett, RVD, Sin Cara, Rey Mysterio, Johnny Mundo, MVP and Carlito, all of whom are within the realms of possibility that would give them quite a roster and would certainly convince me to tune in again.

That would convince anyone to tune in again. TBH though I think RoH and GFW are going to have to have it out before either can really rise to the next level and be in talks of trying to compete with the WWE.

Personally my money is on RoH being able to rise to the occasion, and not GFW. There's just too much history of shit there, even if they are a completely different company, RoH has a history of good wrestling, and solid company management, and decent booking. Their problem is poor talent, and boring storylines. Not a good thing to be sure, but I'd rather that than the upper management running the company into the ground because they're too stupid to know what they're doing.

GFW COULD be something, but I just don't know, knocking off that TNA stank is gonna be hard to do. ROH just seems the safer bet, plus, that's where Daniel Bryan is expressing his interest in returning and they have the better working relationship with NJPW so getting guys like Kenta, or Nakamura once their initial contracts are done in the WWE seems far more likely than GFW.

WWE just want him for viewers let's be honest about that fact. We all know he wants to wrestle again, and WWE don't want to risk it with him, so he's going to do a swangsong somewhere.

Daniel Bryan is certainly the biggest possible WWE bloke another company could poach that would have the biggest impact for the wrestling promotion. He's been out of the game enough that there's a huge anticipation for his in ring return and he's still at an age that if he alters his move set a bit to a more safe style he has plenty of time left in the tank. Problem with Bryan is his pride and being willing to wrestler a more safe style which he has to do. 

Like what's been said, he would have the pulling power to maybe bring a few over with him which is what really is needed to create any sort of waves. It can't just be Bryan if GFW or ROH want to make any real decent impact.

All Hail Mitchell Johnson and David Warner.
