Former TNA wrestler Roderick Strong set to return to Dragon Gate USA after neck injury


Former Ring of Honor champion Roderick Strong, who said he's ready to compete after a recent neck injury, discusses WWE superstar Daniel Bryan.

Strong, who wrestled Bryan on several occasions in independent promotions, joined The Roman Show and said after much rehab and therapy his neck is almost fully healed. Strong suffered a severe neck injury in January.

“It's doing better,” Strong said. “I am returning to action this weekend or next weekend. It’s not confirmed, yet, but it’s feeling better. It’s taking therapy, healing and resting as well.”

The Full Impact Pro tag team champion, who will compete at Dragons Gate USA’s Way of the Ronin on Feb. 23 in New York, said he has been keeping an eye on Bryan in WWE and says the spotlight will soon shine even brighter on him.

“He has confidence,” the former TNA star said of Bryan. “In any situations, he knows what to do. It makes you step your game up. He is the best at doing it, and that's why he is where he is.”
