(Daniel Bryan, 2015 Royal Rumble Contestant)

WWE SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan spoke with radio personality and pro wrestling enthusiast Peter Rosenberg recently, and was still expressing frustration over not being able to compete in-ring despite being medically cleared by many doctors

According to Bryan, he is still not cleared to wrestle by WWE, supposedly on account of WWE’s position that Bryan has had too many concussions.

“Oh, so I’ve had too many concussions [according to WWE]. They have outright said, ‘no, you’re wrestling again.’ Yeah, yeah, yeah. We’re still at the ‘no you’re not wrestling again’ part of that conversation. But I have presented them with my case, which is a lot of testing and that kind of stuff that shows, ‘hey, I’m fine.’ And so, it’s interesting.”

He has reportedly been medically cleared by the best specialists at UCLA who WWE sent him to see, however, WWE is still not medically clearing him.

“I’ve worked with some of the best people in the country. I’ve been cleared by specialists at UCLA that I did not choose, right? WWE sent them to me because they’re the best. A whole team of people who work with concussions on a daily basis and they said to me, ‘you are fine to wrestle.’ And we’re also at this stage where all my brain EEGs, my MRIs, my neuropsychological tests [have been positive].”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
