Bryan Lloyd Danielson (born May 22, 1981) is an American professional wrestler, better known by his current ring name Daniel Bryan. He is signed to WWE.

In WWE, Danielson has held the WWE Championship three times and the World Heavyweight Championship once, in addition to being a former United States Champion and a former Tag Team Champion as part of Team Hell No. He was also the 2011 SmackDown Money in the Bank Match winner, has headlined several major pay-per-view events (including WWE WrestleMania 30), and was awarded the 2013 Superstar of the Year Slammy Award.

Prior to joining WWE, Danielson wrestled for various companies using both his real name and the ring name (and later nickname) "American Dragon". He wrestled for Ring of Honor (ROH) in the mid 2000s, where he was a former ROH World Champion, as well the final Pure Wrestling Champion (unifying the Pure title with the World title). Along with CM Punk, Danielson is one of two men to have won the WWE, World Heavyweight, and ROH World championships. Danielson has also wrestled extensively in Japan, winning the GHC Junior Heavyweight Championship in Pro Wrestling Noah (NOAH) and the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship (with Curry Man) in New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). Between WWE, ROH, and Japan, he has held 10 total championships, including five world titles. He has also won numerous titles on the independent circuit, including two PWG World Championships, the FIP Heavyweight Championship, and the wXw World Heavyweight Championship.

After receiving further diagnostic information that convinced him retirement was necessary, Bryan announced his retirement via Twitter prior to the February 8, 2016 episode of WWE Raw. The following day on ESPN, Bryan revealed that he had suffered over 10 documented concussions during his wrestling career and had been affected by post-concussion seizures, which he had previously kept hidden. He added that EEG scans had revealed that was suffering from swelling of the brain and an acute brain lesion.
