Bret Hart says Daniel Bryan is “finished”


Sports Illustrated has an interview with WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hitman” Hart on the ‘state of the WWE’ and while he discusses a variety of subjects and individuals, perhaps the most powerful statement came regarding Daniel Bryan.

“Daniel Bryan is finished,” Bret said. “He’ll never wrestle again. I don’t think he knows it yet. I feel terrible about Daniel Bryan. For all intents and purposes, he had the exact same thing happen to him that happened to me after Bill Goldberg kicked me in the head.”

The statement puts speculation that Bryan had suffered some sort of bad concussion rather than problems with his previous injuries.

“One day, you learn it’s over. Doctors tell you that you can’t wrestle and you’ll never wrestle again. I lost millions of dollars because of that. I pray that it’s not the same for Daniel Bryan.”
