Daniel Bryan To Quit Wrestling Full-Time In 2020?

The former WWE Champion may be scaling back in a major way.

It sounds like Daniel Bryan is well-prepared for life after WWE.

The 38-year-old made an appearance alongside wife Brie on this week's Bellas Podcast, with the big takeaway being that he is looking to step away from life as a full-time pro-wrestler later this year.

"WWE has been great and they're giving me six weeks of maternity leave, which so few places in the United States do," he said. "So I'll get to be at home, but after that it's not long until my contract is up. We've been talking about what we do from there but to me, in my mind, I think I'm just done being a full-time wrestler."


For the record, Bryan and Bella's second child is due in August, meaning Daniel's contract likely expires before the year's end.

"I love being a dad," Bryan added. "I will always love wrestling, and I will always want to do wrestling, but when I say 'always want to do wrestling,' that means maybe once a month, or once every couple of months."


From a fan's perspective, missing out on watching Bryan every single week would be a shame, though it sounds like he really wants to dedicate himself to his next stage of life as a father. Respect to him for that.
