Bryan relinquished the World Heavyweight Championship back in 2014 due to problems with losing feeling in his arm but was recovered enough to capture the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 31, the feeling of adulation didn’t last long as once again Bryan was forced to vacate the title as his injures once again caught up with him.
After wrestling for more than 15 years Bryan gave a heart felt speech to the WWE Universe in his home state of Washington last night with the main words “I AM GRATEFUL” standing out as his resounding feeling of the entire affair.
Being a man who has loved the sport his entire life, a man who has performed in front of 7 fans in a gas station parking lot and 70,000 in New Orleans at WrestleMania 30, Bryan has more than fought the odds to be one of the most iconic wrestlers of this generation.
Bryan’s matches will live forever in the memory of this generation of fans and the hope is now that the leader of the Yes Movement will have a hand in training the next generation of wrestlers if he goes down to NXT to work as a trainer.
As many fans saw this week, it seems we may have seen Daniel Bryan wrestle his last match, so I though it was only fair to make a tribute…"We will remember him for centuries"
