Daniel Bryan has revealed that his current run with WWE will be his last as a full-time superstar.

The supremely popular Washingtonian was speaking on Talking Smack after the conclusion of last night's SmackDown, when he dropped the bombshell.

Bryan told host Kayla Braxton:

"I haven't said anything about this, but in my mind this is kind of my last run, you know what I mean? This is my last run as a full time Superstar. It's not really a scoop. I think you can feel it in even just the way that I approach things and the way that my mentality is as far as my views towards younger people and all that kind of stuff. When I do this as I'm doing this last run, my thing isn't like, 'I gotta prove to everybody that I'm the best.' When I'm out there, I'm proving things to myself, and I want things better for the younger talent."

Bryan, who returned to SmackDown this past month following a hiatus, made a full-time wrestling comeback in March 2018, having retired two years earlier as a consequence of multiple concussions. Both the retirement and subsequent return went down as two of WWE's most emotional moments of all time.

In August, Bryan and wife Brie Bella welcomed a second child into the world.

A second retirement for the 39-year-old is sure to be similarly tear-jerking (even if fans aren't in attendance), but at least this time, he'll be going out on his own terms.

He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
