Former pro wrestler and current general manager of WWE Smackdown Live, Daniel Bryan, will wrestle a bear on the Emerald City Comic Con Exclusive cover of the previously released comic book, WWE #1, according to an announcement on WWE.com. When images of the cover first appeared, the bear was mistaken for Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott, a common mix-up. However, bears have a long history with the professional wrestling industry, while comic book creators prefer the more modern method of grappling with opponents in life-or-death struggles in underpants: Twitter.

Last year, WWE released a mockumentary short film about Bryan coming back from retirement to wrestle a bear, which you can watch below:

Drawn by Daniel Warren Johnson, the cover will be available at publisher BOOM! Studios’ booth (#1002) at the convention.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
