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].”
