I'm going to be honest this is something that I think was going to happen given the lengthy absence since vacating the Intercontinental Championship last year.
Bryan has had a very exciting, albeit, short WWE Career. But not many can say have been Intercontinental, United States, Tag Team & WWE Undisputed Champion (I still refuse to call it the WWE WHC) in the space of a 5 year career.
He has had some many amazing matches with Bray Wyatt and CM Punk, of which with Punk were some of the best Title matches ever. But considering the talent that was on display, were you surprised?
Allz I can I say is I'm sad it's had to end this way for Bryan but I'm glad he's able to retire whilst being able to walk and not be forced to not being able to walk.
Thanks for the memories, Bryan. It's been fun. Hope you can find something that will help you succeed for the next stage of your career.
