Daniel Bryan discussed his health at a Wizard World Chicago event in Rosemont, IL on Thursday night. During a Q&A session with fans, Bryan reiterated that he has been cleared to wrestle by an independent neurologist but WWE has not cleared him to compete. Bryan is training like he’s going to return and is ring ready, adding he could work SummerSlam if WWE added him to the card.
WWE’s reluctance to clear Bryan has to do with his concussion history — with his latest concussion occurring back in April — and it’s unknown if WWE will ever clear him to compete for them again. The company is being extremely conservative with him, however, Bryan has made it clear he wants to wrestle again.
