Many people thought that Daniel Bryan would never wrestle again after he was forced to retire due to a career ending injury. But you can never say never, as WWE recently announced that the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion has been cleared, and he will be returning to in-ring competition.
Daniel Bryan’s status has a lot of fans talking about other retired Superstars who could potentially be cleared for a return, but don’t look for Edge to get back in the ring.
During a recent episode of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness the WWE Hall of Famer talked about Daniel Bryan’s status, but he was very blunt when he said that he will never be cleared.
“I got inundated, man. I got the ‘well, he’s back, so you can come back, right?’ I was like ‘oh my god, we’re going to go into this again.’ … I will once again and for the last time say this: I greatly appreciate that people would like to see me have one more match, or come back, or Daniel Bryan got cleared so why can’t you. I will never be cleared.”
”Mine is a completely different injury. He had neck issues but it wasn’t his neck issues that retired him initially, it was the concussion issues. I never had concussion issues. What I have is cervical spinal stenosis. Look it up. I have stupid neck, just look it up. You can look up ‘stupid neck’ and it will probably be a picture of my neck. Just do me a favor, look it up, and you then you will realize that the WWE will never medically clear me to compete again. And I appreciate it but that’s all there is to that.”
So there you have it folks, if you’re waiting for Edge to return to the ring you probably shouldn’t hold your breath because according to him it’s not ever going to happen.
