Daniel Bryan Says He No Longer Wants To Be A Full-Time Wrestler

Daniel Bryan Says He No Longer Wants To Be A Full-Time Wrestler
Daniel Bryan appeared on the The Bella Twins podcast and revealed that WWE will be giving him 6 weeks off for paternity leave in a few months when wife Brie Bella gives birth to their second child.


"WWE has been great, they're going to give me 6 weeks of maternity leave," Bryan said. "Which so few places in the United States do that. So, I'll get to be home that first 6 weeks, but after that it's not long until my contract is up."

Bryan continued talking about his WWE contract expiring later this year and said he's been talking about what is next after that.

"We've been talking about what we do from there, but to me, in my mind, it's almost... I think I'm just done being a full-time wrestler. You know what I mean?"

Bella then chimed in and pointed to how Bryan has found his new passion, being a dad, and Bryan agreed. Bryan said he'd like to wrestle once a month or once every few months.

"And that's the thing - I love being a dad. I will always love wrestling. I will always love wrestling," Bryan said, adding the emphasis. "And I will always want to do wrestling, but when I say 'always want to do wrestling' that means maybe once a month, or once every couple of months."

Brie later noted how she and Bryan have it down to an easy process now, with a nanny traveling with them, but they feel like a second child is going to force them to change their schedules and their careers.

There's no word yet on what kind of talks WWE has had with Bryan about his future with the company, or exactly what Bryan has planned. Stay tuned for updates as we get closer to the 6 weeks of maternity leave, which will likely see him written out of the storylines until he's brought back. The Bella Twins announced their pregnancies back in late January.
