Many online are speculating that Bryan's in-ring career could be coming to an end:

Hate to say this but I really think Daniel Bryan needs to retire for his own health

I think Daniel Bryan should retire before he puts himself in a wheelchair permanently

Daniel Bryan is unable to compete at Extreme Rules tonight. Have a feeling he'll retire soon. Not been the same since that neck injury
