Sound Off 425 - THE RETIREMENT OF DANIEL BRYAN

February 14th, 2016

SOUND OFF 425 talks the retirement of Daniel Bryan, the scary results of his latest scans and the tough question WWE now faces for its other performers, what makes this retirement different from (and sadder than) others like Steve Austin and Edge, my favorite Bryan moment in WWE, the Titus O'Neil suspension and why it's too excessive, the REDNECK ROOKIE name for AJ Styles and why it has to die, CM Punk's UFC debut delayed, a positive sign for Ring of Honor, a most interesting plot twist on Lucha Underground, Hall and Nash in DX and why it likely never would have happened even if they stayed in WWE, Bret Hart as the greatest Summerslam performer ever, wrestling themes that sound like porno music, and the WCW countdown match that would've made for a great end to Ric Flair's career!
