ZWrestleTalk's Creator and Head Writer Triple Z gives his take on Daniel Bryan's retirement and how both the fans and Daniel Bryan were rigged of the storybook ending we all deserved!
Daniel Bryan: He wasn't a flavor of the month. He was the man.
On this weeks episode of Monday Night RAW, Daniel Bryan formally announced his retirement from the WWE. With rumors saying Daniel Bryan might head back to the Independent scene. You wonder if this retirement was a screw job on behalf of WWE. Even though Daniel Bryan returning to the independent scene is highly unlikely it could still happen.Rumors suggested back in January, Daniel Bryan wanted to be released to go back and wrestle on the independent scene. Hopefully Daniel Bryan is done for the sake of his health, though if Bryan Danielson makes a return to the ring it should only be for WWE. It's a travesty, Bryan never got the title reign he and the fans deserved. You can't blame Daniel Bryan, WWE absolutely overworked him. Bryan should of never been in a "Hardcore" feud with Kane right after winning the title at WrestleMania XXX. It's like WWE wanted disaster to strike... You probably are reading this and thinking that I am a conspiracy theorist. Well at least for this section of my piece. I will just ask logical questions about how after Bryan's first neck injury how he was treated.
When Daniel Bryan came back before WrestleMania 31, they should of capitalize on the hype. If Daniel Bryan was doomed to get re-injured at least put him in a match where the fans would make it memorable.
Daniel Bryan VS Brock Lesnar
A Technical Showdown. The Beast VS The Best. David VS Goliath.
The only reason that match didn't happen was because of this question plus WWE being in massive love with Roman Reigns.
"What if Daniel Bryan wins and then he gets injured again?"
Well… At least fans witnessed a epic match at WrestleMania 31 and then you could do a Title Tournament on RAW. Instead none of the above happened. Daniel Bryan was put into a mid-card ladder match. Which a ladder match is way more dangerous then a one on one singles match even if it's against Brock Lesnar.
Don't get me wrong I'm glad Daniel Bryan retired due to his health concerns. Daniel Bryan deserves to be able to walk around his whole life. The thing I am more frustrated with is that he was dedicated to the fans and put on a show every time he was in the ring. Daniel Bryan just deserved better luck and WWE did mismanage him during his time with the company but at the end they made the right call.
Daniel Bryan changed the game for WWE. WWE started to change it's image starting with NXT. NXT has a roster of guys WWE would of never took a chance on if it wasn't for Daniel Bryan. Daniel Bryan has been the only wrestler to get me to jump off my couch ,and start a "YES" chant after he won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Even though it's depressing how the "Era of Daniel Bryan" ended.
It was one epic journey for all of us fans. Hopefully another Daniel Bryan comes to save WWE from the "Roman Empire." I'm looking at the guys in NXT to do that!
