News of the unexpected passing of Bryan Danielson’s (stage name Daniel Bryan) father was posted on the WWE website earlier today. Bryan was made aware of the death of his father upon returning from his honeymoon with Total Diva’s star Brie Bella.
Despite all of this, Bryan still vows to return to Monday Night RAW in Baltimore tonight after taking last week off following his highly publicized marriage. It’s been a whirlwind year for Bryan. He was the focal point of the WWE’s landmark WrestleMania 30 event in New Orleans; Bryan opened the show by defeating HHH and closed it by defeating Batista and Randy Orton in a triple threat match for the WWE World Heavyweight championship. Heading into the company’s May PPV event, Extreme Rules, Bryan is rumored to be facing Kane.
Our hearts are with the friends and family of Danielson during this time. We here at Fight Booth send our deepest sympathies their way.
