Here are the latest updates over Daniel Bryan’s career
As per Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Bryan is not signing with WWE and he is isn’t necessarily going elsewhere. Here’s what he said:
“Internally, there has been no discussion of Bryan returning to WWE and he is not listed on the company’s roster. There have been some in the company who have taken that to mean that Bryan is signing or will sign eventually with AEW, but PWInsider.com has no confirmation that is correct.”
The report not only listed this but also clarified that Bryan is not planning to be a part of licensing and merchandise for 2021-22 as well. Also, he is not planning to be included in the release of action figures by Mattel.
Though Bryan is trying to dissolve his next step, WWE has not stopped mentioning Daniel Bryan’s name in storylines or interviews related to Roman Reigns. On the other hand, Bryan’s wife Brie Bella and his sister-in-law Nikki Bella were also rumored to return to the company, but there’s no update on that yet.
