Once Monday Night Raw ended, WWE cameras continued to capture footage as most of the performers backstage came out to the ramp to show appreciation for Daniel Bryan, who announced his retirement this week. Chris Jericho was spotted wearing a Social Outcasts shirt, and the former world heavyweight champion has been receiving praise from the internet wrestling community for showing support to the new stable.

In a move that has been expected but still surprising, Daniel Bryan has announced that he is going to retire from professional wrestling. The former world heavyweight champion attempted to gain his release from WWE so that he can go wrestle on the independent wrestling circuit. However, Vince McMahon refused to let him out of his contract, which is similar to the situation that Rey Mysterio was stuck in not too long ago.

Rumors spread like wildfire today about an imminent release of Daniel Bryan after an anonymous email was released by someone that claims to work in the human resources department for WWE. They stated that the office was asked to process a contract release for Bryan.

A rather interesting question was asked of Ryback during a recent interview. The former Intercontinental Champion stated that he would not completely rule out a potential reunion of the Nexus stable that WWE did a couple of years ago. Former members (Wade Barrett, Darren Young, Heath Slater, David Otunga and Curtis Axel) are still on the roster. Daniel Bryan and Bray Wyatt would not fit in nowadays.
