Daniel Bryan's days as a full-time WWE performer may be coming to an end, with the former World Champion recently revealing that he is looking to move into more of a part-time role as fatherhood and its many responsibilities take over his life. Prior to his, Bryan has called this has "last run" on a regular schedule. His wrestling career is, by all accounts, winding down.
That doesn't mean the 39-year-old isn't interested in ticking a few dream matches off his bucket list before he departs, though.
Speaking with BT Sport, Bryan has named Ricochet, Apollo Crews, Shinsuke Nakamura, Seth Rollins, Rey Mysterio, and Dominik Mysterio as the people he'd like to face before riding off into the sunset. Here's the clip in question:-
On top of the mentioned Rollins bout, Bryan has faced Rey twice before, albeit in routine Raw matches in 2012 and 2013. He and Shinsuke Nakamura went to a disqualification on SmackDown last year. Crews, Ricochet, and Dominik have never gone one-on-one with the GOAT candidate.
Still, there's a huge difference between the kind of matches Bryan appears to be aiming for and those he has worked with these names in the past. Fingers crossed he gets a chance to deliver them before retiring.
