Daniel Bryan To Visit WWE Doctor This Week To See If He Can Get Cleared

As noted, Daniel Bryan is headed to Pittsburgh as Seth Rollins’ replacement at the World Of Wheels show at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

Pwinsider.com is reporting that Bryan is scheduled to see WWE Dr. Joseph Maroon this week in Pittsburgh. He will be there to see if he can get cleared to return to in-ring action. Bryan has been out with a concussion since early last year. Dave Meltzer reported last month that Vince McMahon has gone back and forth on what to do with Bryan.

Bryan was not cleared after his first visit with the WWE doctor, but he was cleared by his own personal doctor.

Bryan told IGN in October of 2015 that “One neurologist who specializes in concussions – who was the neurologist for the Super Bowl last year – cleared me with no limitations, ” He added, “All my testing came back excellent. But the WWE’s medical doctor is skeptical, because of my history of concussions and that sort of thing. So they will not clear me. So now, we have two doctors: one saying no, one saying yes. They’re going to send me to a third doctor at some point in the near future, and that doctor will decide my fate.”

    I get the sneaking suspicion that this Daniel Bryan/WWE situation is going to end with some sort of court case. Not to minimize the concern about concussions, but it’s very, very uncommon for a guy to go a whole year without being able to get cleared, if only on a limited basis. And WWE has hardly brought him back even in a non-ring capacity despite the boost he could give their product just by showing up. Even Corey Graves, who never got past developmental and was told to retire because of concussions, got an announcing gig and his own show. You think they’d at least have given DB something to do while waiting in the hopes that he could be cleared one day. Or alternately, just grant him his release, tell him, “If you really want to wrestle matches, you can do so at your own risk elsewhere – just not here with us,” and cut ties completely.

    But it’s becoming increasingly obvious to me that WWE does not want Daniel Bryan on their programming in any capacity. He became too popular for his own good, and WWE, in their awareness of that, has to keep him far away so he doesn’t overshadow the figures both in and outside the ring that they really want to get attention. This is especially true as they try to manufacture Reigns into a top star. The attempt is already floundering, partly due to Reigns’s own deficiencies and partly due to WWE’s clumsy booking. If Bryan were brought back now, But they don’t want him jumping to a rising promotion, either. The longer this has dragged on, the more suspicious I get about it and the more I think it’s political rather than health-related. I wouldn’t be surprised if it comes out someday that Vince, who has deep pockets and about a fraction of a conscience, paid people off to lock Bryan out of the promotion once he got injured.

      Same thought I’ve had, vince has lost touch to reality, the ones that naturally get over with the crowd he hates, because he wants us to like the guy he likes, that’s a fact, reigns, Cena , usos etc…

      From reading between the lines, Corey Graves was happy to accept a gig as a commentator and step out of the ring, and Bryan has been offered similar opportunities and turned them down because he still wants to wrestle. He could be on TV all the time in non wrestling roles if he wanted to; he just doesn’t.

      I have zero suspense and don’t think there’ll be any court action, and if there is? he’s going to lose because they’ll be able to come in and show multiple concussions on his chart..look it’s not as if the WWE doesn’t know how over the guy is and how he can make money for them but there comes a point where someone has to take charge and be the one with the bars news..the WWE is just covering their own ass,
