My reaction: This has been a long time coming. Naturally, I was hoping that he would be cleared to return to the ring at some point so he could continue having great matches, but if he's really that much of a health risk, then I can't blame WWE for not wanting to test their luck. Hopefully, Bryan sticks around as a trainer rather than busting his ass on the independent circuit just to continue wrestling, as the last thing we need to hear about is him having further health problems. Best of luck, man!
