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.
