Daniel Bryan Defends Brie Bella, “Almost Every Wrestler Has Accidentally Hurt Someone”

Brie Bella has been on the receiving end of major internet hate after accidentally injuring Liv Morgan last week … and now Brie’s husband is coming to her defense.

Daniel Bryan dropped a string of tweets on Monday which began with the wrestler writing, “I am proud of how strong my wife is. After accidentally injuring Liv Morgan last week, the first time Bri’s ever hurt another performer, she’s been subject to a constant barrage of social media attacks. Almost every wrestler has accidentally hurt someone but rarely do you see this kind of hate when it happens.”

The rest of his statement continues:

“For example, I concussed Randy Orton in 2012 after hitting him with what was supposed to be a chair to the back. Unfortunately part of the side hit him in the back of the head, and he was forced to miss a PPV. In 2009 in our last match against each other, I concussed Nigel McGuinness after doing a dive into him in the crowd, where his head hit the floor. And there are others. As for the Yes kicks, two weeks ago I accidentally kicked Andrade directly in the head due to a miscommunication on my part. I feel fortunate that he was ok, because there are few feelings worse than hurting someone. Despite all of that, never did I receive the backlash Bri did this week. With all the negative things said about my wife, nobody was harder on her than she was on herself. Thank you to the many people who reached out to support her, both publicly and privately. We all wish Liv Morgan a speedy recovery.

As we previously reported, Liv Morgan suffered a concussion during the match. It’s unclear if she’ll be cleared for Super Show-Down this weekend, but she did appear at a live event over the weekend.
