No! No! No! Daniel Bryan announces retirement from WWE

Daniel Bryan, sidelined by a major neck injury, has not been on WWE's signature show, "Monday Night Raw," since last August. He hasn't been in a match since last April.

Reports circulated over the weekend that the fan favorite was set to appear on this week's edition of "Raw," which will take place in Bryan's hometown of Seattle.

Bryant confirmed on Monday that he will be on the company's flagship show, but also dropped this bombshell in the process.

Now, with WWE, you never know what's "real" and what's "scripted," so we'll have to wait until tonight to find out. The Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer has reported that Bryan recently gave his notice to WWE, but the company blocked his resignation, so that adds to the intrigue of whether this is, in wrestling terms, a shoot or a work.

On a side note, it will be a different-looking Bryan who appears on "Raw" Monday.

This photo of what we assume is Bryan, with a short haircut and trimmed beard at the airport and supposedly on his way to "Raw," popped up on Twitter on Monday morning.
