Daniel Bryan retires from professional wrestling #ThankYouDanielBryan

Daniel Bryan, whose real name is Bryan Danielson, has retired from professional wrestling, he announced first via his Twitter account and then on Monday Night Raw, 8 February 2016.

We here at ClutterStuff actually recommended this several months ago. He has spent the better part of two years out with various injuries, some of which were serious. As a relatively recently married man (to WWE Diva Brie Bella), I would love to see Bryan be able to have a family and be healthy enough to enjoy them.

Daniel Bryan wrestled in several independent promotions before coming to the WWE in the first class of NXT. Despite being released after the debut of the Nexus (for being too violent?), he returned to WWE as a solo act. He went on to win the World Heavyweight Championship, the Tag Team Championships (with Kane as Team Hell No), the Intercontinental Championship, and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. His last title reign was cut short by injury when he was forced to relinquish the title shortly after winning it.

Bryan spent the last several years as the most “over” Superstar in WWE in many years. He was much smaller than other wrestlers, but had a charisma and a love for the sport that made him the favorite of many fans.

Thank you, Bryan. You have been a bright spot in professional wrestling for several years. I hope that you love the next phase of your life as much as you have loved wrestling. And I hope that you make the people in the next phase of your life as happy as you have made us wrestling fans.
