Mike Ashmore of the Trentonian recently interviewed Daniel Bryan about the possibility of an in ring return. Bryan’s comments were very interesting. Bryan is quoted as saying: “I’m trying to get cleared as we speak. All my tests have come back fantastic, better than people who have never had any concussion-type stuff. But it’s a weird thing. We’re in a weird situation politically with the climate around concussions; right now, it’s very difficult. WWE would love to have me back, but is that the smart thing for me as a business to bring me back? If I was to come back, and they let me back, would they get a lot of flak for it? They have a ton of stockholders that they’re responsible for. It’s more than just, ‘Is he healthy to do it?'”
Clearly Bryan is chomping at the bit to return. He will wrestle again, that much is undeniable. The question is whether it will be with the WWE.
