I think he'll say he's not going to be ready to come back for many more months, but this way the fans know it and won't hijack shows chanting for him. Maybe have him pass the "fan favorite torch" to Reigns to reduce the chance of the crowds turning on him come Mania time.
Hope to god not.
I'm not sure when it was but if I remember correctly, last time Bryan was told to endorse Reigns on air he was cracking up. It's like you could tell Triple H said "Daniel, you gotta make Roman look strong so give him the torch" and Bryan laughed at the idea.

Edge's retirement didn't hit me that hard, I only started watching properly in late 2008 and I was never a huge mark for him.
But Bryan? I've got everything crossed that he can continue and he's entering the Rumble. If he needs to retire then that's more important obviously, but with Bryan gone as well as Punk... I dunno if I'll be quite as interested in the WWE again.

Barrett: I'm AFRAID I'VE GOT SOME BAD NEWSSSSSSSSSS!
Funny, I cooked up that scenario in my head. Daniel's teasing the retirement, and BNB's music hits. He comes out, does the I've Got Some Bad News gimmick, says that he might as well get it over with and say what everyone knows in the back, that he can't cut it anymore. And Bryan goes "You're right...I can't cut in anymore...I can't cut it anymore...I can't cut staying at home anymore!", Baisuke Kicks Wade, and says "Because I asked the doctors...can I compete in the Royal Rumble...and they said YES! YES! YES! YES! YEEEEEEEEES!"
WHERE DO YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING?!
