Daniel Bryan hints at challenging for the ROH Championship after he leaves WWE

Daniel Bryan’s recent tweet to Cody Rhodes will have people talking. As we noted just a couple of days ago, Bryan has been dropping more hints on his future in wrestling after his WWE contract expires next year. In his recent tweet, he seemed to confirm when his WWE contract expires and issued a warning to new ROH World Champion Cody Rhodes.

Bryan wrote, “Side note, if you hold the @ringofhonor title 462 days I may have to come after you, which would be 9/28/18. Be forewarned! #FinalCountdown.”

Bryan later sent out the following tweet:

Earlier this week, Bryan told Sports Illustrated that he was “working on” wrestling again. It’s clear that he will not be wrestling for WWE again so he will have to wait until his contract expires. He will 37 years old if/when he starts wrestling again. As noted on Wednesday’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan got some more tests done in April and while we don’t know what the results were, the fact that he is optimistic about wrestling again sounds like he got some good news from the doctor.

In a September interview with ESPN, Bryan indicated that his own doctors cleared him and he was feeling good when he gave his retirement speech. The reason why he had to give the speech is that WWE Dr. Joseph Maroon would not clear him to wrestle. Again, in late March, he seemed optimistic about returning. He told Inside The Ropes that WWE’s decision to force him into retirement is “a liability thing. It’s also that they’re trying to protect me and that sort of thing. But there’s good reason to believe that I should be able to wrestle. So we’ll see in a year and a half what happens.” On Friday I noted that people close to Bryan say that he feels great and the chances of him wrestling again seem to be pretty good.

There are so many dream match scenarios for Bryan and independent companies will be paying a lot of money to get him. If New Japan Pro Wrestling gets him then we could see him against the likes of Kenny Omega, Hiroshi Tanahashi, and Kazuchika Okada. If he works in Mexico then he will get the opportunity to do the hair vs. mask match that he’s talked about. Of course, Ring Of Honor would want him and even though Impact Wrestling is being very conservative with their spending, I am sure that they would shell out big bucks for Bryan. If they were smart, they would try to build the promotion around him.

It will be very interesting to see what happens next year and how WWE deals with it.
