Daniel Bryan cut off his long hair for charity
Daniel Bryan had two surprises for his fans on Monday. One, he announced on “RAW” his retirement from wrestling in a sincere, emotional speech. Two, he showed off a new look that included shorter hair and a more trimmed beard.
The popular WWE figure and leader of the YES! Movement stated on social media that he donated his hair to a Wigs for Kids charity, which provides wigs for children who have lost their hair.
“The people at @wigs.for.kids are doing great work and cutting my hair never felt more meaningful. Find out how you can help at wigsforkids.org #grateful,” he wrote on Instagram.
He also discussed his trimmed look.
“But now, it is time for me to address the giant elephant in the room,” Bryan said to his fans via Uproxx. “I know, I didn’t want to shave my beard either, but the thing is that I wanted to cut my hair, and once I cut my hair, I looked really silly with this giant beard. And this is just my one cheap plug. It’s that I cut my hair for an organization called Wigs for Kids, and one of the nice things about them is that they make wigs for kids who have had cancer and they don’t charge the families at all for that, so if there is anything worthwhile that comes out of what I’m saying tonight, that’s it right there.”
That’s a pretty awesome move by Bryan but it’s hardly surprising given how thoughtful he is. If you missed his speech from Monday, you should check it out here.
