"Daniel Bryan changed the wrestling world forever"
– Daniel Bryan has retired. It would take a while to sink in after the amazing retirement procession last night on RAW. Bryan was the one of the most over Superstars in recent times and was a solid fan favourite since he set foot in the WWE. The ‘wrestler’s wrestler’ had a ten-year long career before the WWE and defied all the odds to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania 30.
As soon as he announced his retirement on twitter, there was a lot of praise from all sections of the wrestling universe. Superstars from John Cena to Roman Reigns all praised ‘The Goat’. His retirement speech was really moving and made a lot of people teary-eyed.
One legendary superstar had a moving message for Daniel Bryan and issued a statement. Hardcore legend Mick Foley praised Bryan for his wrestling and his career as a whole.
Daniel Bryan called it a career last night on #RAW – but what a career it was. He put everything he had into everything he did, and changed the wrestling world forever. As good as he was wherever he went – from Independents, to Japan, to ROH, Bryan Danielson just did not strike many (including me) as a WWE guy. But, when given the chance, he showed that he could not only be A #WWE guy, but THE WWE guy, and by the time he was done, had been part of not only some of the great matches in company history, but some of its most memorable, funniest non-wrestling segments as well. His touching farewell speech on last night’s RAW may have been the most memorable of all.
