Confirmed. Thanks, Bret.

    Daniel Bryan is finished. He’ll never wrestle again. I don’t think he knows it yet. I feel terrible about Daniel Bryan. For all intents and purposes, he had the exact same thing happen to him that happened to me after Bill Goldberg kicked me in the head. One day, you learn it’s over. Doctors tell you that you can’t wrestle and you’ll never wrestle again. I lost millions of dollars because of that. I pray that it’s not the same for Daniel Bryan.

    Bryan’s problem is concussion related stemming from his match with Sheamus on the Smackdown tapings right after Mania. Many people in wrestling have known this for some time and we were told it as soon as he got sent home from the European tour. For whatever reason, at that point a bunch of denials were made because evidently WWE wanted that under wraps. The issue is career threatening at this point.

    Within wrestling, that has been the belief from the start and clearly everyone has been told to keep quiet. Right now people aren’t as quiet as it was noted to me that Bret Hart basically gave it away.


Sux.

So after all that worry about Bryan's neck injury/arm numbness being an issue again, it was actually just a concussion from sloppy-ass Sheamus?

Obviously, "just" a concussion is nothing to sneeze at and is just as career-threatening. While it makes me upset that Bryan could be done due to another wrestler's screwup, in a way it's also somewhat comforting --- "just" a concussion is less damaging to Bryan's long-term health than a neck or spinal problem. A concussion can theoretically vanish overnight, whereas nerve damage in your neck never goes away.

The symptoms of a concussion (the dizziness and such) can vanish overnight.

A concussion can also stick around and have lasting ramifications, depending on the severity. The more we learn about concussions, but more we realize how dangerous they are.

This is terrible, terrible news.

Hopefully he saved the money he did make and hopefully he and Brie will be careful with what she makes and they'll escape the business quickly and go live normal lives sooner rather than later.

Bryan could be molded into a regular on-air speaker. RAW GM, color commentator, manager -- his chants alone are worth his paycheck. If he can mold the YES into an angle for, say, a new stable or a new post-Authority attitude, he can contribute to the product.

I am thinking the WWE should give him a lifetime paycheck, but they won't. Bryan should lawyer up, but he probably won't. If he is gone and the way they are booking Ambrose as everyone's favorite loser who is a loser. I am not sure what full time power faces they have besides the mixed bag that is John Cena.

Considering what we just came up on the anniversary of, I'm perfectly content for that to be it as far as the in-ring career of Brian Danielson. It sucks, but the risks ain't worth it. We have no idea what his predisposition to concussions is, how many he sustained in his many years doing indies/ROH, so if it's career threatening that should be enough to call it a day, really.

I am genuinely amazed that WWE, as turgidly corporate as they are, let him do anything after sustaining this injury. These are the people that stopped matches for hardway juice FFS. Jesus.

I feel so terrible for the poor guy At the very heights of his career, pulling in pops that would make Steve Austin give a respectful nod, to get downed by injuries. Considering how rough and stiff (painful, not bad) his old RoH matches seemed, I suppose it's not too surprising that his career was shorter-lived than it should have been, but what a time for it to go off the rails. If WWE has one shred of sense, they'll give him a job for life as announcer or a mouthpiece for the younger guys, which means they'll probably release him from his contract and pretend he never existed ...

Poor Daniel I loved him as the American Dragon in RoH, and his last days in the WWE were good ones, at least. Too bad he didn't get to put the final nail in the coffin of the Authority before he left us ...

Here's to a great career and a great guy, and thanks to Mr Brian for all his hard work. *salute* Now go hang out with Austin on his ranch and talk about the good ol' days ...

Anyone could've called it. He comes back from horrific injury and goes RIGHT back to landing straight on his head and shoulder on those turnbuckle dropkicks. I'd cringe every time the guy would do a move. Sucks.
