There are rumors going around with speculation being that Daniel Bryan is going to announce his retirement from the ring. The rumors started after WWE announced that Daniel Bryan would be making a “career-altering announcement.” The rumors were bolstered after Bryan was removed from the Raw battle royal shortly after he was announced for the match.
It’s unknown what Bryan will say tonight but Dave Meltzer made it clear that he is not retiring and whatever he has planned for tonight is storyline related.
As previously noted, Bryan did a backstage promo after his match at Extreme Rules and he hinted at a big change for his character. The promo did not air on the live broadcast but you can click here if you want to hear what he said.
For those concerned, I don't know Daniel Bryan's statements tonight but they are storyline related and not a retirement.
