  • Bryan Danielson suffered a detached retina and there was some scary moments after where his eye rolled into the back of his head.
  • From Gabe Sapolski @ ROHwrestling.com: Before I get into my whole experience on Saturday I’ll give you all a quick rundown since I just got off the phone with Bryan. Bryan saw an eye specialist today and it was found that he had a detached retina. He had laser surgery today where they re-attached the retina and tightened the muscles surrounding the eye. The reason his eye couldn’t come down after the match was because the muscle was loosened. It’s an outpatient surgery, so he was released today after having surgery this morning. The surgery went well, and there’s a 90% he will regain vision, although it may be blurred. It is recommended he take 4-6 weeks off. He will have a check up next week and the week after to check on his progress. I promise you all that we will not rush Bryan back. Bryan is maybe the toughest individual I’ve ever known and that covers a lot of ground. No one saw the locker room scene after almost all of his matches after the shoulder injury and how much pain he was in and how he was able to gut it out at his own insistence. This isn’t a guy that takes pain killers or anything even close. He is also a guy that knows his limits. He is just incredibly tough.

Worlds Heavyweight championship in a match against tournament finalist “Shooter” Brent Albright. The match did not end without controversy as assigned IWA Official Jose Vasquez had been previously eliminated by a inadvertent closeline from Albright causing Special Enforcer “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson to assume in ring referee duties. The match ended after Albright superplexed Pearce from the top rope, and both men’s feet became entangled. Danielson counted three and called for the bell, although it was unclear whose shoulders Danielson had counted down. Upon taking the belt from NWA? Executive Director Robert K. Trobich, fans in attendance seemed certain that Danielson would hand the “famous 10 lbs of gold” to Albright, instead he awarded the title to Pearce and informing Albright that it was in fact his shoulders that were down. In the end.

My contract contained a 90 day no-compete clause in the event I was let go, yet the WWE has graciously allowed me start wrestling again on any show that’s not taped for television or pay per view.” He didn’t say much else other than teasing TNA was interested in his services. “But regardless of what offers come in, I am in no rush to make any rash decisions,” he wrote. “I enjoy my freedom as much as I enjoyed the benefits offered by being in WWE. My future, as usual, is uncertain. But I am enjoying my return to the independents. I’m hoping to see some of you there.” Full blog at www.bryandanielson.tv
