Recently, Daniel Bryan appeared on E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness hosted by former World Champions, Edge and Christian. Interestingly enough, Bryan revealed tons of details regarding his retirement from last year.
Bryan revealed that he was originally cleared by his own doctor but WWE made a decision to send him to two more doctors who were of their choosing. However, Bryan was cleared by these two doctors as well.
Afterwards, WWE sent him to Los Angeles for some ‘experimental testing’ which apparently showed that Bryan had a lesion in his brain. Following this, Vince McMahon forced Bryan to write up a retirement speech, which he did after being convinced by the WWE that it was indeed for the best.
Post-retirement, Bryan was asked by one of the doctors who cleared him about the reason behind his retirement. Hence, Bryan let him know that it was because of the lesion that was found in his brain. The doctor, however, told him that the term lesion was very “vague” and that it only meant that something “may” be there.
He also revealed that the tests indicated that his reflexes were comparatively slower than that of the other athletes, though they were still faster than that of an average man. Furthermore, he revealed that upon testing his brain looked like that of a college football player and his time off from wrestling had healed it to the point that it looked like the brain of an average person who has had no history of head trauma.
