Daniel Bryan Talks Leaving WWE If Not Cleared


Current WWE SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan recently spoke with radio personality and pro wrestling enthusiast Peter Rosenberg about Bryan’s present medical status, his frustrations over being cleared by various healthcare professionals and still not being allowed to return to a WWE ring.

According to Bryan, he is still not cleared to wrestle by WWE, supposedly on account of WWE’s position that Bryan has had too many concussions.

Apparently, Bryan was cleared by the specialists at UCLA who WWE sent him to see; however, WWE is still not clearing the former world champion.

In Bryan’s view, in his current role, he can only do the stuff he does not like in pro wrestling such as traveling and cutting promos.

Bryan divulged that he will not continue on in his role as SmackDown GM if he is not cleared to return to the ring by the time his current WWE deal expires. In such a turn of events, ‘The World’s Toughest Vegan’ will seek out greener pastures for an in-ring return.

“If I get a bad test somewhere along the line, I won’t wrestle. But I also, will probably, when my contract is up, I’d probably, if I’m still General Manager at that point, I’d probably step away from that part of it because just being around it, I love it a little too much and I need to transition. I need to get this focused because I’m very good at focusing on one thing, right? But then, I need to switch that laser focus to something else like saving the starving polar bears. So yeah, assuming everything continues as it has been going, when my [WWE] contract is up I would wrestle elsewhere if WWE would not clear me.”
