In case you missed it (likely you didn’t), professional wrestler Daniel Bryan (or Bryan Danielson) officially announced his retirement from professional wrestling due to issues stemming from multiple concussions. While it’s sad to see him go, I’d much rather have him walk away from the business on his own accord rather than have to be carried out. I’ve posted many times about Bryan on the site before (see HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE), and after watching him wrestle from his days in Shawn Michael’s Texas Wrestling Alliance back in 2000 to his WWE run, I’m going to miss seeing him on TV, but I’m glad I got to see his work when I did. #ThankYouDanielBryan!

Oh boy, it’s QUITE a watch….and is an AWESOME match! Continue reading “Bryan Danielson vs. Paul London: 2-Out-Of-3 Falls Match”
This week on WIRed, we discuss an architecture grad’s school bus retrofitted into a tiny house, a USB-powered desktop BB rifle, ‘Game Dev Tycoon’ and it’s hilarious anti-piracy efforts, and my favorite Daniel Bryan/CM Punk memes!
Since I know that it’s become clear that I enjoy LEGO, Sonic The Hedgehog, do-it-yourself projects, and indie games, I haven’t been secretive of my appreciation for professional wrestlers Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan) and Phillip Brooks (CM Punk — did that just blow your mind?). Rather than just talking about a match, how about I show you in images how awesome these guys are? More after the break! Continue reading “And now…DANIEL BRYAN & CM PUNK MEMES!”
