It is a sad day for all of us in the WWE universe as independent darling turned Undisputed WWE Champion Daniel Bryan announced his retirement via Twitter today and that he’ll elaborate on Monday Night Raw tonight.
I had a feeling this was coming eventually but I had hoped maybe a return at Wrestlemania. Though I’m 99% sure this is legit, this is, of course, professional wrestling and sometimes you can never know. Part of me is hoping that this is a swerve and Bryan will be challenge by someone, maybe Samoa Joe or AJ Styles, but it probably won’t happen.
So tune in to night on Monday Night Raw to see what will probably be an emotional goodbye from Daniel Bryan.
Due to medical reasons, effective immediately, I am announcing my retirement. Tonight on Raw, I'll have a chance to elaborate. #gratitude
