Daniel Bryan’s WWE career was amazing in more ways than one. Not only was he the ultimate underdog who worked his way right to the top, Bryan’s fairy tale career was also an inspiration to an entire generation of WWE fans.
At his peak, the bearded man from DC, was the most ‘over’ superstar on the roster. In fact, the reactions that he got from the WWE universe were quite comparable to the ones that Rock and Austin got in their heydays.
His remarkable journey to the main event of Wrestlemania 30 was one of the best stories that the WWE have produced in years, as fans lapped up to the wronged employee fighting against his corrupt bosses.
Sounds pretty familiar doesn’t it?
Bryan’s crowning moment came at Wrestlemania 30, when he beat Triple H in the opening match and then beat Batista and Orton in the main event to win the title.
Unfortunately for his fans, that was as good as it got for Bryan. He suffered injury after injury which eventually led him to relinquish his world title. On his return, Bryan won the Intercontinental title, but further injuries forced him to eventually retire.
Bryan’s emotional farewell is still a powerful moment in WWE history, as fans realized that they were being deprived of a talent that still had so much to give.
Maybe he still does, because recent reports have said that Bryan is training for an in-ring return in the future. He has been helping out his wife Brie Bella train for her return, which has also given him a chance to prepare for his.
Bryan is looking to develop a low-risk style of wrestling, something that should protect his neck and back. We will wait and see if he does indeed become successful.
