Daniel Bryan celebrated the one year anniversary of his retirement this week, which had to be bittersweet, considering the well know fact that Bryan didn’t want to retire and he was medically cleared by medical professionals outside of WWE, but sadly WWE doctors wouldn’t clear him to compete inside the squared circle.
The SmackDown Live GM has a storied history with The Miz, and the two have been feuding ever since Bryan stepped foot in WWE. The Miz was Bryan’s ”Pro” on WWE NXT TV. Then some time later, Daniel Bryan defeated The Miz to capture the U.S. Title at the ”Night of Champions” pay-per-view. The feud has resurfaced after all these years after the Brand Split last year, despite the fact that Daniel Bryan is no longer an active in-ring competitor, and The Miz has been throwing verbal jabs left-and-right towards Bryan because he knows there’s nothing Bryan can do about it.
Daniel Bryan (fka Bryan Danielson in the independent circuit) recently appeared on the Gorilla Position podcast, and when he was asked if he will ever return to the ring he noted that if you ask WWE then the answer they will give is a firm “no.”
However, Bryan noted that although a return is unlikely, he also said that you can “never say never.”
“As far as I know, no. You know the one thing about this, in any form of entertainment or fighting, or sport, is ‘never say, never,’ right? I keep going to different things and I keep working on the doctor standpoint of it, ‘Okay, is there anything that I can do more to get cleared?’ and right now I’ve done everything I can possibly do, and so, but I still look at different things and still look at this and that.”
