Daniel Bryan made it to the top of the wrestling industry when he won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 30. The following year he won the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 31, but unfortunately for Bryan he was forced to retire in 2016.
Fans weren’t very happy when Daniel Bryan announced his retirement, but he’s said several times that he’s considering a return to the ring once his WWE contract expires.
During his time in the ring, Bryan influenced many of the wrestlers who are currently applying their craft inside the squared circle, and one of those wrestlers happens to be Zack Sabre Jr. who WWE fans will recognize from the Cruiserweight Classic tournament.
WNW recently commented on Twitter saying that Zack Sabre Jr. may have surpassed Daniel Bryan as the greatest submission based pro wrestler of this generation, and Bryan agreed.
He may have passed me awhile ago… but don't tell him I said that

Zack then chimed in by calling himself a tribute act.
Please do not draw attention to my incredibly poor tribute act.

Lucha Underground fans are quite familiar with Brian Cage, and they’ll get their chance to see him do what he does best when the rest of season 3 airs on El Rey Network.
As far as what’s next for Brian Cage, he recently spoke to Sports Illustrated, and noted that he has some big goals for 2018.
“There are avenues I want to cross in 2018,” said Cage. “New Japan is a major goal on my list, and Ring of Honor is the only company I’ve never worked with in the United States. TNA has this loose agreement with AAA–John Morrison and Taya are worked the [GFW] house shows – so new possibilities exist.
Cage also had a lot of praise for former WWE Champion AJ Styles, and he made it clear that he wants to face him in a dream match someday.
“I’ve never worked with JT Dunn, so that’s someone I’d like to wrestle, but my all-time dream match is against AJ Styles. Obviously he’s in The Fed right now, so it will be a little more complicated to have that match now, but I think he’s one of the best in the world.”
