Daniel Bryan Reveals The Specifics Of His Injury + Never Returning?

We just posted some brand new photos of Stacy Keibler on the beach in a TINY bikini. To check ‘em out, you can click here.

Daniel Bryan spoke with Busted Open Nation for an interview that will air in full Friday on SiriusXM. According to Busted Open, Bryan confirmed that his issues where caused neither by his match with Luke Harper, nor being thrown into a table by Sheamus. Check out some highlights below:

On the chance that WWE won’t clear him to wrestle in WWE: “Yes, there is that chance. But I told them, regardless of them, if they won’t clear me … we’re independent contractors, in theory … and I WILL wrestle again. I am cleared by the neurologist in Phoenix that I’ve been going to see. It’s not like he’s a quack doctor. He was the neurologist for the Super Bowl … who has no problems in clearing me with no limitations. But you also have to understand that WWE is not only looking out for my best interest, but they have to look out for their company as well, and I understand all of that too. There is nothing vindictive or anything there’s just a lot of hurdles to go through at this point with getting cleared by WWE. I had a sit-down with Vince and Hunter about this and said, “Hey, this is my passion. I understand why you guys wouldn’t clear me but we only get, as far as we know, one life. And you’re not going to let me do my passion?”

On the specifics of his injuries: “Well it’s actually not a neck issue, my neck is completely fine. It’s more of a concussion issue. And Brie was very hesitant about this whole thing and that’s why WWE is very protective over me too. Everyone is more aware of concussions and that’s why, with WWE, I don’t see what they’re doing, as far as making me go through all these hurdles, I don’t see that as a negative. They’re protecting me and especially in this era of concussion awareness. Brie at first was like, “Hmm, I’m not sure, given your history.” But when we met with the neurologist in Phoenix and we went through all the testing and he said: “Ok, all of my testing is not just coming back good, it’s coming back excellent.” As far as my brain right now, it’s at a level above most people who have never had a concussion my age. When you are looking at scores of like: Bad, poor, fair, good, great, excellent — it’s at those great-excellent levels. So all of that to say, she had gone from being very skeptical about it to being very supportive of me being able to wrestle again. And she is someone who will flat out say, “I’m not just interested in what happens to him 2 years from now or 5 years from now” and she doesn’t care about the money or anything like that, she is interested of where I’m at 20 years from now. The deal with my arm, they told me this because I waited so long to get the surgery, my right arm might never get back to full strength of my left arm. So right now, it’s about 85% and it hasn’t improved much in a while. But because the nerve had been cut off for so long, there is a very good chance that that will never come back. But, it’s not like I’m feeble with my right arm. My left hand, and we’re going mostly by grip strength because my triceps strength and all that kind of stuff is equal on both sides. My grip strength on my left hand is about 150 pounds of pressure and my grip strength in my right hand is about 130 pounds of pressure. The average male my age is about 100 pounds of pressure. So it’s not like I’m ‘arrrggghhhhh poor me!’.”

Jim Ross Discusses Seth Rollins’ Title Reign, His Emotions & More

Jim Ross recently spoke with The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast, here are the highlights…

Kicking off the first South-Eastern leg of his one man show: Ringside: An Evening with Jim Ross: Anytime you play a market that was a territorial hub then you generally get a very educated fan base that are very loyal. That translates into some very compelling and intriguing question and answers. I’ve found that a big part of my shows and the most entertaining aspects are the question and answer portions which we devote about ninety minutes to and it’s all uncensored, nothing off limits but you just hope that people use good judgment in their questioning but that sometimes is what it is. In the hub cities like Charlotte or Knoxville generally the difference is that the Q and A’s go a little deeper and the fans are a little bit more territorial as far as their questions going territory oriented and “back in the day” oriented rather then what is going on like the last week on Raw.

Who does he see as WWE Champion at WrestleMania 32 and is there still a true heel in wrestling: I would not take the championship of Seth Rollins until WrestleMania. At WrestleMania if I have something that I believes work then that is where he would drop the title. By then he would have had a full year and if he is not over and he is not a “made man” after being champion then you can’t blame the promotion. He’s like any of the villains on TV whether it is WWE, Ring of Honor, TNA or Lucha Underground there is not enough of guys that cheat to gain an unfair advantage. Villains must stop working for the “pop” or the “this is awesome”. If I were a villain in a true sense of the word that would piss me off to no end. My work should be menacing, dangerous and dirty. It is supposed to enhance your dance partner and make the baby-face more of a bigger, stronger and powerful ticket selling, merchandise selling entity. Too many heels would rather work for a “pop”, then work for “heat”. When you take that angst away there is a fine line between good and evil and if it disappears I say good luck to the business. When you take away the “heel”/”villain dynamic I don’t know what you have got?

Is Seth Rollins “The Future of WWE” and does “The Future” need to be champion: I don’t know that the WWE Champion has to be the future of the company, I don’t know if any one person should be the future of the company. If it is that’s poor management because you don’t want to put all of your eggs in one basket. I am very proud of the worker that he (Seth Rollins) has become. He has a great mind for the business. He is a booker’s dream, in other words he is a beatable champion. In the territory days or the live event days theoretically on any given night that he is defending the title he can be beat. He’s not so physically imposing that he looks unbeatable and I like that. If you are going to have a heel champion then I like one that has vulnerability.

Not knowing finishes to matches: How can you listen to The Undertaker/Mick Foley Hell in a Cell match and say I wasn’t emotionally involved in that. I thought he (Foley) died. I thought “we” killed him, “we” meaning the company and booking that match and putting the pressure on this big main event that he had paid the ultimate price to have a great match. Everything you hear on that sound bite was nothing rehearsed because (Jerry) Lawler and I didn’t even know what they were going to do that night. I was talking with Jerry the other day and asked if he remembered us sitting down and going over finishes and he said “we never did”. We didn’t want to know, we wanted to be surprised. Even Bob Caudle, we hardly ever knew. I think sometimes with announcers in today’s world, the less you know about what is supposed to happen the better off you are. You broadcast what you see and you communicate it in an organic, natural fashion. I think that’s why at one point in time my work was accepted well because my style was physical, it was snug, it was athletic and as my first wrestling boss Bill Watts wanted it was called as a “shoot”.

Who brought out his most raw emotions while on commentary: With Sting, he started in Mid-South and I saw him from when he had gone to Tennessee (he and Hellwig) very very briefly then he came to work for Bill (Watts) in Mid-South so I’ve known him forever. I had a great re-pour with him. I had an emotional investment into that character. When he was in WCW he was our guy and one of the survivors that made it after the buyout when Crocket bought UWF. Sting was one of the guys that actually survived. So I kind of felt a kinship with him and I liked him a great deal personally. The guy that brought out the most organic, guttural passion from me was Stone Cold and I would say that later on guys like The Rock because I signed him and he was “my boy” from day one as a rookie, Shawn Michaels coming back after being gone for four years was amazing to me and I got so into his matches. When I was being phased out when he got to his run with The Undertaker i got to call WrestleMania 25 and that one match and I am thankful for that. There are different guys at different times in my life and my career that brought just a little more juice in me. But over the long haul Austin from start to finish was special but he wasn’t the only one because Sting was my Stone Cold before Stone Cold became that guy and before Sting there was Dr. Death (Steve Williams). He was like my little brother, well maybe not so little.

His relationship with “Dr. Death” Steve Williams: It was a great honor and also a great heartbreak to give the Eulogy at his funeral. I’ve been able to give the Eulogies at Jack Brisco’s funeral and Steve “Dr. Death” Williams’ funeral and I am not trying to make a career out of doing Eulogies but it’s just nice enough that the families think enough about the relationships I had with the deceased that they ask me to say a few words. Doc was very special. Doc should have had a long run in Jim Crocket Promotions. Doc should have been NWA Champion at least for a run, because he damn sure would have been believable. He just didn’t feel that it would be a steady thing to build his career on so he decided to go the Japanese route and that worked out for him just fine.
