Daniel Bryan will be the guest on the ESPNews “Off the Top Rope” segment on Tuesday night during the 8:00 p.m. CT hour. Host Jonathan Coachman shot down fan speculation that the Bryan retirement announcement was a work. “Let me be VERY clear,” Coachman wrote on Twitter. “This is not a work. Not a storyline. Real life. And it stinks for one of the really good guys.”
Powell’s POV: I don’t think WWE would rock the boat with ESPN by working them, so Coachman’s words are very telling. Bryan will address his retirement on Raw tonight in his home area of Seattle.
