During a passionate speech on Monday Night RAW, Daniel Bryan announced that hanging up his boots was the only option after receiving results to a recent test on his brain — causing everyone in the arena (and at home) to bawl their eyes out.
Bryan says the test was a little over a week ago and after getting the results, he realized his brain might not be in great shape … which is why he pulled the trigger on retirement.
The powerful segment closed tonight’s show and featured Daniel speaking from the heart about his entire career. The wrestler was naturally holding back as many tears as possible while he talked about his love for wrestling and it’s fans, Brie Bella and his late father.
He concluded by saying, “Tomorrow morning, I start a new life, a life where I am no longer a wrestler. But that is tomorrow and not tonight, if I could get one last ‘Yes’ chant I would really appreciate it.”
The crowd obviously obliged.
