Last Friday night (June 23), former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes won Ring of Honor (ROH)’s World title. A bevy of his old co-workers took to social media to congratulate him, including SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan.
Bryan is, of course, currently retired from in-ring competition due to medical tests pointing out some severe health risks should he wrestle. The former WWE and ROH World champ is also fond of hinting he might comeback any way when he’s free of his WWE obligations.
