Daniel Bryan Defends Brie Bella For Accidentally Injuring Liv Morgan

Daniel Bryan has come to the defense of his wife on social media following the backlash from fans after she accidentally concussed Liv Morgan last week.

The top story in WWE last week, and also going into this week, was Brie Bella's mistake on Raw that led to Liv Morgan suffering from a concussion. While performing the Yes Kicks that her husband made famous, Bella accidentally kicked Morgan in the face twice. The first presumably knocked out the Raw Superstar, and as she fell forward she caught the second one.

As you might expect, the former Divas' Champion has received a barrage of hate from fans on social media ever since. Coupled with the botched suicide dive a couple of weeks prior, fans have been claiming that the twin isn't ready to return to the ring. However, Bella's husband Daniel Bryan has come to her defense with an argument that's difficult to dispute.

Bryan published a series of tweets on Monday detailing times when he hurt fellow wrestlers but received no backlash from fans whatsoever. In 2012, he gave Randy Orton a concussion that led to The Viper missing a PPV. Three years prior, before coming to WWE, he misjudged a dive onto Nigel McGuinness that led to the NXT announcer hitting his head on the concrete.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, a fan claimed that Bella picking Morgan up and taking her to Riott Squad's corner is what made the situation dangerous. Bryan replied that what happened to him and McGuinness after their incident was far worse. "We continued the match, head-butting each other, and me giving him multiple elbows to the head," he wrote. He also revealed that he kicked Andrade 'Cien' Almas in the head performing Yes Kicks recently, but was lucky enough not to knock out or concuss his opponent.

Bella may have made a couple of mistakes since her return, but Bryan's argument is a valid one. Not only do accidents happen in the ring, but other performers would not have received nearly as much backlash as she has simply because they are preferred by hardcore wrestling fans. Shinsuke Nakamura's kick that broke Austin Aries' eyesocket and essentially derailed his WWE career was a forgivable accident, but Morgan's concussion that she has already returned from is seemingly an unforgivable act.
