Heel is 100% correct there. WWE Doctors are much more carefully for several reasons. Firstly, Benoit, secondly, a ton of currently retired wrestlers, thirdly, the ongoing lawsuit. 

If Daniel Bryan returns, Edge and Paige are going to be pissed. Bryan is already pissed that Angle is allowed to wrestle but he isn't. 

I'm currently going through the big Bryan push right now in my Raw catchup. I started watching again in mid 2015 so I've been catching up. The hilarious thing is how many people, literally on Raw, are saying exactly what the fans think is their idea. The whole "the fans got behind Bryan after his Wrestlemania loss to Sheamus" thing is garbage if you watch it. Nobody got behind Bryan then. People started to get behind Bryan because Team Hell No was brilliant. AJ Lee pushed the Yes chant hard. Kane pushed it hard. Cena mentioned it often. That yes chant happened repeatedly over the course of one show on several occasions.

Months later, Punk vs Bryan brought attention to both of them and after that what you'll see is a lot of careful Bryan pushing. He gets pinned a lot in that time and, well before the fans called him an underdog, he called himself one.

Before Summerslam the next year when he faced Cena, Triple H was literally saying the exact words that fans say all the time now, but as a face to Brad Maddox. Orton lost to Bryan and endorsed him. Kane the same. Cena chose Bryan personally to face at Summerslam.

So to be clear, before the fans forced WWE to 'pull the trigger' Bryan had beaten Orton clean, Cena clean and Punk clean. He made Seth Rollins tap and on and on and on.

Little overlooked fact, when Daniel Bryan won the title at Wrestlemania 30 it was his fifth world championship in WWE. Fifth. 

Fifth.

The underdog was a five time world champion and he was only solidly pushed for a year. 

Now, I don't know if mania 30 was at is was planned. I know that the plan was for Bryan vs Orton before Batista was signed, but the signing of Batista may well have changed everything. Honestly, I think it did, and Bryan was pushed to the backburner. That said, while mania 30 was this huge moment, that same moment didn't need to be at that Wrestlemania. The storyline could easily have continued and he would still have been a big deal.

Sorry Tom have to correct you there unless one of those championships was from ROH he is a four time champ in WWE  

His first was cashing in the MITB on Big show 

second was beating John Cena 

third was beating Randy Orton 

fourth was winning the title at wrestlemania 30 


Onto Brian wrestling I know with all these things about him wanting to be able to wrestle on tv when usually they would shy away from that unless its the Miz and he wants to chew someone out I have a feeling he will be coming back for a few matches here and there, however he is going to need to change his style or at least drop the headbut as that's a good way to get yourself concussed.

Fair enough, must have got my numbers wrong somewhere. 

I don't ever see him back. After he rejected the latest contract offer Vince doesn't really want to keep him to be honest.

Quote According to internet reports, Daniel Bryan still isn't cleared to return to in-ring action by WWE physicians and according to some people who would knowledge of this situation, it is unlikely that the company's medical team will ever clear him to return to the ring. With Bryan set on resuming his wrestling career, it is looking more and more like his days with WWE will be coming to an end this year.
 
If E won't let him wrestle ever again, I don't see why any other company would take the risk with him.
 
For example say he got to ROH and E not letting him wrestle is proved to be right, as Daniel ends up seriously hurt in the ring Droz style or worse.
 
The company would be over. Any money they have would be used to give him a better quality of life for the rest of his days and talent won't want to be there knowing their bosses let him wrestle under well documented circumstances.

Its irresponsible and stupid of Bryan to be stubborn and risk his health wrestling elsewhere for less money when he can earn a good living and not risk serious injury by working in a non-wrestling role in WWE.

If he did suffer a serious injury say for ROH it wouldn't be major news because ROH are so small in comparison to WWE and are not really on the mainstream radar. This is why I think a smaller promotion like them would allow Bryan to wrestle for them as they know they wouldn't suffer too much adverse publicity from him getting hurt but they would gain a lot of increased viewership and so forth from Bryan being part of the company.

WWE on the other hand would be dragged through the mud in the media if Bryan gets really hurt in the ring and it would probably see all the Benoit stuff resurface. This is why they wont take the risk no matter how small.

When Bryan wrestles, and doesn't get hurt again, because he has come to realize that he needs to wrestle smarter, and becomes a huge draw for RoH, WWE are going to be pissed because their practice is to put former top performers out to pasture and keep them as happy as they can in a cushy job so that they don't go compete against them elsewhere.

People with creative minds are kept particularly happy. In the past you had guys like Dusty Rhodes, Paul Heyman, Jim Ross, & Jerry Lawler all given whatever odd job WWE could give them just to keep them placated with a steady paycheck, because WWE knew that if those four left WWE angry and worked together to form a new promotion WWE could end up with actual competition in just a short time. 

So here is Daniel Bryan, a main event star still in the prime of his life, but hampered with injuries and what do you do? Bryan's going to go out like Randy Savage, on relatively good terms, but 100% adamant that he can still perform and be a main event star and frustrated with WWE that they won't let him.

Bryan may get injured again and that will be the end of his career... and the same thing could have happened to Shawn Michaels, too. It's a gamble and WWE is flooding the press with stories about how unsafe it is for Bryan to wrestle, but if third parties are certain he's fine, then who is to say that WWE knows better than the rest of the world at large? Only Bryan can make that call.

So I say go for it, live your life, and if it doesn't work out you've got no one to blame but yourself, and if it does, then more power to you. Stick it to WWE if you can. The wrestling world will be better off if you succeed regardless of whether or not some people like you or not.

Worked for Kurt Angle. WWE said he would never wrestle for them again. TNA disagreed and the rest is history.

Exactly this - and bearing in mind Kurt Angle had broken his neck several times and developed an addiction to pain killers in the process.

Bryan is far less risk than Angle

Quote In a correction from a report yesterday, Daniel Bryan’s current WWE contract expires on September 28th, 2018. We apologize for the error.

Side note, if you hold the @ringofhonor title 462 days I may have to come after you, which would be 9/28/18. Be forewarned! #FinalCountdown https://t.co/alSLGCeNcX

When E release people they have a no compete clause for three months. So couldn't they release him the day before his contract is up to keep him out of another company until into the new year?
 
If management think he won't sign a new contract, I would expect him off screen before even Summerslam so they aren't promoting someone who will be gone soon.
 
The last thing they will allow is for creative to use him until he leaves, so he can turn up on another TV show a few days later.
