If Daniel Bryan Isn't Cleared, Blame Nobody

Injuries always happen in the world of professional wrestling. Whether it's cuts, bruises, muscle tears, or even broken bones, these things happen. With Daniel Bryan on the shelf with a concussion since April of 2015, the chances of clearing him are slim to none; and the fact is that slim has left the building. Although clearing him could help WWE on a short term basis, at the end of the day WWE has the last say. If they won't clear him, why they let him go? It's not that easy. First and foremost, Bryan is married to Brie Bella and both of them star on the E! Network hit series Total Divas (A show I really don't watch) and releasing him could drop viewership. Another thing is his insistence to be in the ring again, even though WWE doctors won't clear him. Heck, why should they? The list of injuries are piling up like a bad accident on Highway 95. Let's be honest here. Would they clear Bryan to help the roster out a bit? Probably not much as ratings for both RAW and SmackDown are down, and the injuries are not helping. The current roster in a sad state right now, but the facts are facts. If WWE does not clear Daniel Bryan by the end of the year, fan disinterest will be at an all time high. I'm not gonna be one of those disgruntled fans, but if you don't like what WWE has to offer these days, the alternatives are always there. I know the product isn't gonna be good, but with WWE's current injury situation it won't be. As for Daniel Bryan, WWE could give him a non-wrestling role for him since his popularity is still at an all-time high. I would like to see him take on the Authority in a General Manager role. Nothing physical, but it will give him a role that would give him solid airtime. With lawsuits against WWE regarding concussions, it's difficult to clear Daniel Bryan even when he is cleared by other doctors. ​If Daniel Bryan is released, he might go to Japan or maybe back to Ring Of Honor. If he is released, don't blame WWE. Don't blame anybody. If Daniel Bryan is released, don't be upset about it. Because WWE's loss is the someone else's gain.
