Compiled: Every WWE.com Superstar Interview on Daniel Bryan's Retirement




WWE.com ambushed members of the talent roster as they arrived for today's episode of RAW to get their thoughts on Daniel Bryan's Twitter announcement on his official retirement from pro wrestling. Some of them, like Chris Jericho and Darren Young, had just literally found out the news and seemed momentarily tongue-tied. Others, like Renee Young, Paige, and Alicia Fox are their usual positive selves, even in light of such tearjerking news.

But enough with that. Here's what they had to say.

Daniel Bryan's real-life wife Brie Bella shared some thoughts on her husband's career, dreams, and upcoming goals for their family moving forward from this.


Chris Jericho delivers a very pragmatic view on a man he calls one of his favorite performers to watch.


The Miz tells all of us how proud and honored he is to have shared the ring with Daniel Bryan.


Dolph Ziggler talked up the chemistry he and Bryan shared in the ring, which he felt helped paved the way for smaller performers in the WWE.


Becky Lynch talked about what an inspiration and guiding force Daniel Bryan was towards her own in-ring career.


WWE Divas Champion Charlotte is obviously saddened, but wishes the leader of the #YesMovement all the luck on the beginning of his next journey.


Darren Young was obviously caught flat-footed, calling Daniel Bryan "one of a kind," but believes there is a place for him in the WWE even with his injury and his inspiring story.


Renee Young is her usual enthusiastic self, and while she's clearly heavy-hearted by the news, she's excited to see what's next for Bryan.


Cody Rhodes calls Daniel Bryan a true friend and role model, simply looking for him to find what makes him happiest.


Even the New Day seems to have lost the #PowerOfPositivity as they deal with the breaking news.


Paige and Alicia Fox are bummed out beyond belief, calling the retirement a real tearjerker, promising to be around to support both Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella as they move on in life.
