Daniel Bryan, the WWE star recently had interview with SoloWrestling, where he spoke about his retirement plans.
Daniel Bryan wants to wrestle till getting “really old”
The former WWE Champion wants to stay involved with the wrestling business. He expressed his desire to follow the footsteps of older wrestlers like Terry Funk and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler and wrestle till getting “really old” rather than retiring completely.
He wants to stay in the business and not give up entirely.
“I don’t think I’ll be a full time wrestler for that much longer… I never even envisioned the idea of retiring. I want to wrestle until I’m old! And when I say old, I mean REALLY OLD! I love wrestling! A lot of times I’m inspired by people like Jerry Lawler and Terry Funk and even some European wrestlers like Johnny Saint who will still go out there and wrestle in their sixties, maybe even seventies. Not because they need the money, and not because of this or that. They do it because they love doing it. Right?”
Bryan had previously said he would not be a full-time wrestler anymore and also joined the creative writing team of WWE.
He is set to participate in the Men’s Royal Rumble match at Royal Rumble pay-per-view on Sunday, January 31.
