Sidelined WWE star Daniel Bryan announced Monday afternoon prior to Raw that he is retiring.

Bryan did not qualify his announcement as “retiring from WWE,” suggesting he might try to wrestle elsewhere.

Due to medical reasons, effective immediately, I am announcing my retirement. Tonight on Raw, I'll have a chance to elaborate. #gratitude

Since suffering his latest concussion nearly one year ago, Bryan has reportedly cleared by independent doctors to wrestle again. However, WWE has not been willing to clear Bryan to wrestle.

Monday’s Raw will emanate from Bryan’s home area of Seattle, where he will make a formal announcement on live TV.

Bryan will then appear on Tuesday night’s edition of SportsCenter on ESPNews to discuss his retirement.
