Daniel Bryan set to continue with the WWE?
He'll be a valuable asset even in a non-wrestling role
Daniel Bryan, who recently announced his retirement from WWE on RAW, could have a future with the franchise after it emerged that WWE CEO Vince McMahon not only wanted the wrestler to return to RAW in Seattle but also wished he could appear on WWE TV during WrestleMania 32 in a non-wrestling role in order to add more star power, reports dailywrestlingnews.com.
However, while Bryan did return on RAW, it wasn’t to resume his wrestling career after his injury but to announce his retirement from the franchise, which puts any role on WWE TV in doubt. Bryan reportedly wasn’t drawn to WWE’s recent offer and probably had something else in mind.
The former World Heavyweight Champion may have chosen to retire on his own terms in order to get back on the independent scene, but a source close to Bryan and Brie contradicts that theory and states that the wrestler values his health and would not risk entering the ring again.
However, wrestling, like any other sport is unpredictable, so a return from Bryan in a wrestling or non-wrestling role mustn't be ruled out. After all, the Rock did and continues to make appearances on WWE in various roles despite leaving the franchise to focus on other pursuits.
