The latest word on Daniel Bryan’s WWE status according to Wrestling Observer Newsletter is that company officials were still waiting on the results of a third doctor’s findings in regards to Bryan’s health and if he should be put back in the ring.
As we’ve noted, WWE’s Dr. Joseph Maroon ruled that Bryan should not wrestle again due to the number of concussions he’s suffered. Bryan later got a doctor that works with the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals to test him and his brain tested above average for his age. That doctor cleared him to wrestle.
If the third doctor’s tests have been done, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that results are being kept secret but they could be back in as Vince McMahon has reportedly been going back-and-forth on Bryan’s status.
Former WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio was a special guest on Busted Open Radio this week to remember Eddie Guerrero on the 10th anniversary of his passing.
Mysterio during the interview revealed he wasn’t ready for his WWE title run after Eddie’s tragic death.
“No, especially not under those circumstances. I guess my career was heading in a different direction. We had just finished our feud with my son, Dominic, and the great story that Eddie put together and how much passion he threw behind that, that character that he was. He was ready to move on with Batista and I really don’t know where I was going, but that changed direction completely for, I believe, for everyone.
So I really wasn’t ready at the time, but of course you’ve got to make the best out of it. This was a big opportunity for me and the people knew. The people knew that it was going down for Eddie. I was put on the spot, but I was there representing Eddie.”
