Triple H was asked yesterday at the Television Critics Association if WWE would ever make an exception to their medical policy to allow Daniel Bryan to return to the ring, but Triple H said that there can be and will be no exceptions, as anyone would reasonably expect him to say.
Bryan’s contract expires at the end of September and he’s made it clear that he wants to wrestle elsewhere if WWE won’t let him.
The Wrap has a transcript of Triple H’s comments:
There can be no exception medically. If the belief is that he’s not healthy enough and there’s a risk [for him] to perform, then I don’t know why you’d allow him to step into the ring unless it can be proven otherwise. There will be no exceptions.
We have some of the best medical people in the world that work for us. Our wellness policy, our concussion programming, our protocols — I’ll put them up there against any on the planet.
That is a new science in a way, too. So we’re gonna look at it from all aspects, but the medical experts will make the determination as to whether he can ever step into that ring or not.
Look, personally for him, I know it would be something he would love to do, and part of me feels like I hope he has that opportunity. But at the same point in time, he’s married and has a child. Certainly, [we put] the human being first.
