Ring of Honor Wants to Book “Bryan Danielson” When His WWE Contract Expires

The exact medical situation of former WWE champion Daniel Bryan is anything but clear. He has claimed on multiple occasions that he is healthy enough to compete in the ring, but WWE doctors refuse to clear him after he suffered multiple concussions over the course of his career.
