WWE superstar Daniel Brtan isn’t laying on the couch while being off the road due to his concussion injury. Bryan has been released to return by several of his doctors, but the WWE’s medical staff has yet to clear him.
Former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson recently spoke with The Sporting News and said the WWE star has been working out in his gym, “(Daniel Bryan) was out with some injuries in WWE. He came to our gym and moved up to blue belt in jiu-jitsu under my coach John Crouch. Every time I go in there, he’s working his butt off. I heard he was pretty strong and actually surprised me with how technical he is. A lot of guys have a hard time learning all those techniques. I heard he was really great at being able to use his technique and not relying on his strength. He’s smooth and does jiu-jitsu really well.”.
The MMA has a big history of pro wrestling crossover from Bobby Lashley, Brock Lesnar, Tank Abbott, to Ken Shamrock, and as far as recently making an attempt CM Punk. Could Bryan be trying to brush up his skill set for a MMA run in case the WWE never clears him? Time will tell.
