WWE Fans Are Crying After Daniel Bryan Announces Retirement

Daniel Bryan will officially retire as a WWE superstar at Monday Night Raw in Seattle.

The American Dragon announced the news on Twitter earlier this evening, confirming that his recent struggles with injury have been too much for his body to take.

He’s been unable to wrestle since picking up an injury in April last year – the latest of which was concussion-related – but it was thought he would make a return at some point in 2016.

However, that won’t be the case, with his body paying the price for a 17-year career spent honing his action-packed style.

Bryan – who is married to WWE Diva Brie Bella – took to Twitter around 6pm (UK time) to inform his fans that he’ll appear on Raw tonight to explain the decision:

Bryan is one of the most popular wrestlers in the WWE Universe and the reaction has been as expected – A LOT of people are upset.

Fans are posting in their thousands in tribute to the man at the front of the Yes Movement and here are just some of the reactions:
