During an appearance at the Television Critics Association yesterday, where WWE held their first-ever panel at the event, Triple H commented on whether the WWE would potentially make an exception in their medical policy and allow Daniel Bryan a chance to make a return to the ring.

“There can be no exception medically. If the belief is that he is not healthy enough and there is a risk for him to perform, then I don’t know why you would 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 going to 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.”

Bryan’s current contract with the company expires at the end of September and he has made it clear that he intends to wrestle once again.
