In a different form. There are a lot of people on the WWE roster and several others who are working behind the scenes to make the shows work. Several of these people have little experience in front of a camera on a wrestling show and that can create a few issues for some fans. However, there are also some wrestlers who are involved behind the scenes as well and now one of them is doing a little of both at once.
Back in 2013/2014, Daniel Bryan rose up to the top of the wrestling world with the incredible apex coming at WrestleMania 30. Bryan became the most popular wrestler in the world and despite a long layoff, he came back and made it all the way back to the top of the company again. While Bryan is probably heading towards the end of his in-ring career, it is time to start doing something else, which he seems to have found.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Bryan has been absent from television since June and has been working with the creative team. Bryan has appeared via videos that have been sent in, but he has not been in the arena for over two months. One of Bryan’s last appearances was in a segment with AJ Styles and Renee Young, both of whom were soon pulled from television and later announce that they had tested positive for the Coronavirus. There is no confirmation that Bryan ever tested positive. Bryan has been at home with his wife Brie Bella and new son Buddy. It is not clear when he will return to TV.
Bryan can do some great stuff when he is around. Check out his most recent exploits:
Opinion: I can understand that Bryan does not want to wrestle in these circumstances given his health status and there is not a thing wrong with that. As much as Bryan loves wrestling, there are some things that are more important than getting in the ring. It is very cool to see that Bryan is getting to do something with the company, as he has been able to contribute somehow, which not everyone could do in such a situation.
How much can Bryan help creative? What should he do when he returns? Let us know in the comments below.
