9. Update On Daniel Bryan Possibly Returning To In-Ring Action In The Future

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, retired WWE Superstar and current SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan talked about the possibility of an in-ring return despite being retired. Below is what Bryan said:

“I’m working on it. Wrestling is more of a creative outlet, and especially for somebody like me, I view it as my creative outlet. Not all WWE superstars and not all wrestlers view it that way, but that’s how I view it and that’s one of the ways my mind works creatively. I always think of it in terms of music. You’re not always going to be a huge rock star in music, but musicians can play until the day they die. With sports, it’s different. You can’t always do it until the very end, and that’s a hard reality of sports. The blessings wrestling has given me have allowed me to find some new passions, but it’s really hard when you’ve got that first love and nothing really replaces it.”

Below is what Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer had to say about this:

“Bryan had some tests done in April and I don’t know how the tests went. Maybe that encouraged him, based on that. The one thing I don’t see is Vince going against Dr. Maroon. So the question is, you know again, as long as Maroon is there, Joseph Maroon, I don’t see Maroon changing his tune on this. It’s possible he will but I don’t think so. And if he doesn’t, I don’t see Vince because for Vince to go against the advice of his lead doctor, that would be disastrous potentially. It’s a horrible idea so I don’t think that’s going to happen.”
