Daniel Bryan issues statement regarding Liv Morgan injury Submitted by Aaron Rift on 10/01/2018 at 03:48 PM
On Monday afternoon, Daniel Bryan issued a Twitter statement regarding his wife Brie Bella giving Liv Morgan a concussion on last week's RAW:
"I am proud of how strong my wife is. After accidentally injuring Liv Morgan last week, the first time Bri’s ever hurt another performer, she’s been subject to a constant barrage of social media attacks. Almost every wrestler has accidentally hurt someone but rarely do you see this kind of hate when it happens. For example, I concussed Randy Orton in 2012 after hitting him with what was supposed to be a chair to the back. Unfortunately part of the side hit him in the back of the head, and he was forced to miss a PPV. In 2009 in our last match against each other, I concussed Nigel McGuinness after doing a dive into him in the crowd, where his head hit the floor. And there are others... As for the Yes kicks, two weeks ago I accidentally kicked Andrade directly in the head due to a miscommunication on my part. I feel fortunate that he was ok, because there are few feelings worse than hurting someone… Despite all of that, never did I receive the backlash Bri did this week. With all the negative things said about my wife, nobody was harder on her than she was on herself... Thank you to the many people who reached out to support her, both publicly and privately. We all wish Liv Morgan a speedy recovery. #EndCyberbullying"
Bryan also responded to a fan comment:
In the Nigel example, I did much worse. We continued the match, head butting each other, and me giving him multiple elbows to the head. And if by “botch” you mean hit my feet on a suicide dive, I’ve done that countless times as well #EndCyberbullyinghttps://t.co/Y9CzQ1bCxd
