A doctor who evaluated Daniel Bryan for WWE says there were no conditions/factors shown in the results that should stop him from wrestling and “no definite evidence” of prior brain injury.
Neurosurgeon Dr. Robert Cantu — an expert in concussions who consults with teams for the NFL, NHL and NBA — told Newsweek he evaluated Bryan on February 26 and determined Daniel is “currently asymptomatic, has a normal detailed neurological and cognitive neuropsychological examination, normal EEG, and an MRI that showed no definite evidence of a prior brain injury.”
As we previously reported, Dr. Cantu was mentioned alongside three other noted concussion experts in the press release WWE sent out about Daniel getting medical clearance.
Cantu finished his statement saying, “It is my medical opinion that there is no absolute contraindication to his return to in-ring action in WWE.”
For those unaware, Daniel has talked about the treatments he went through at the Joe Namath Neurological Research Center in Florida to improve his brain function.
