Daniel Bryan announced his retirement on Twitter Monday afternoon, potentially ending an over-15 year career in wrestling.
Bryan posted this to his Twitter Monday afternoon:
Due to medical reasons, effective immediately, I am announcing my retirement. Tonight on Raw, I'll have a chance to elaborate. #gratitude
Tonight's RAW is in his home state of Washington, so it would create an extremely emotional tribute to him to retire there. Of course, anything in wrestling has to be taken with a grain of salt, and coming so close to Wrestlemania, the question has to be asked if this is a work or not.
I'll be holding off my full tribute until we see what happens on...
...World Wrestling Entertainment in 2002. The company has headquarters in Stamford.
