Chris Nowinski On Daniel Bryan’s Decision To Retire From Pro Wrestling

WWE
Former WWE star and Concussion Legacy Foundation co-founder Chris Nowinski recently spoke with FOX Sports about Daniel Bryan’s decision to retire due to concussions. Here is what he had to say:

“I felt extraordinary sympathy for Daniel. It’s tough to walk away when you feel like you could still perform. In a sense, I was lucky because I had headaches I couldn’t kick and other problems that told me I shouldn’t go out and do (wrestling) again. He didn’t have that. He had to really dig deep to find the justification to walk away from the job he loved. It has been very interesting to watch the process. I’ve read that he was upset about WWE’s decision, but he saw other doctors and WWE really encouraged him to find another path because they recognized his brain was injured too much.”

    I find it very telling that, in all the talk about the long term effects of multiple concussions, no one seems to have pointed to Benoit as an indicator of how extreme the consequences can be.
