– There has been an interview going around online, which was not published on this site, claiming to have Daniel Bryan talking about retiring soon. Bryan took to Twitter this afternoon and shot down the rumors, saying the entire interview was fake:
I appreciate all the thank yous, but the entire interview claiming that I said my time is over is a fake. I will be back wrestling.
