Daniel Bryan retires from in-ring competition.

I'm hoping that this is a big work to draw viewers and create a storyline for him for Mania, but I'm pessimistic. I definitely hope I'm wrong.

Remember, Mark Henry said he was retiring, too. I'll wait until it plays out tonight.

I have a funny feeling this is legit...I have the same feeling as I did whenever Edge retired. I hope I'm wrong too but I dunno, it feels weird because two doctors cleared him but WWE refused too.

I think its my fault...all my favorites quit or retire early.

Ultimate Warrior --- fired three times, piece of shit, etc
Stone Cold --- retired early due to injury
Edge --- retired early due to injury
CM Punk --- quit
Daniel Bryan --- retired early due to injury

It's better that he retires. CTE is no joke and he's at very high risk for it if he doesn't already have it. I don't blame the WWE for blocking him from being able to make a return. They don't want another Chris Benoit. They don't need a concussion scandal like the NFL.

I can't disagree...I want him to live a normal life. Wrestling isn't life...its not worth dying over. CTE is a real issue and he's admitted to having over 10 concussions in his career before WWE.

It just fucking sucks

The Coach is saying that it’s legit and not a swerve. Should be interesting.

WWE is getting a lot of press for this. They'll be getting extra people tuning in I'd assume, so they should really up the quality of what surrounds this segment tonight.

Oh Jesus fucking Christ.... please be a work.

If not, this is 2016 in wrestling: Daniel Bryan retires. Bret Hart gets cancer. Reigns is still the golden boy. Triple H wins The Royal Rumble and WWE Championship and main events WM with Reigns (I'm calling that shit right now.) Welp, it's off to the indies for me.

They're either giving us an incredible work, or this really is it. They've been doing Bryan highlights at every segment.
