The WWE's Tribute Video to Daniel Bryan

On today's episode of RAW, the WWE aired a short one-minute video tribute to Daniel Bryan's incomparable career before he officially announced his retirement.

While short on moments and actual story-telling, the video captures Bryan's greatest gift to pro wrestling's fandom: the pure joyfulness of a man who loves what he does, and loves everyone in the industry sharing in the same myths, moments, and legends as he does.

We're now at the official close of the Daniel Bryan era as he bid the WWE Universe goodbye as an active in-ring competitor.
