Daniel Bryan's contract situation means he can't quit WWE even if he wants to

Published 10 Comments

The future of Daniel Bryan in the WWE seems to have been a recurring debate over the past two years, such has been the Yes! Movement leader's injury woes.

Things have ramped up a little lately, however. With Bryan currently being kept out of the ring due to WWE's concerns over his history with concussion, the popular wrestler, claiming himself to be ready for action, recently said he'd be happy to fight on the independent circuit.


Bryan remains popular with fans despite his prolonged time away from primetime, so his comments inevitably sparked fears of an exit amongst the WWE Universe. Fortunately, a backstage update today should alleviate any such concerns.

Speaking in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer appeared to put an end to speculation that Bryan could jump ship to the Indy circuit.

The WWE guru stated that with the bearded Superstar still having several years left on his WWE contract, and with the company dead against releasing him, Bryan actually has little say in where he competes for the foreseeable future.

The clarification will come as a relief to fans who still believe their hero can return to the top rung of the WWE in the future.

Unfortunately, whilst Meltzer confirmed Bryan isn't leaving the WWE anytime soon, the Superstar's in-ring return remains a total mystery.

Indeed, having recently been removed from an upcoming WWE tour when he was only going to be taking on a non-wrestling GM role, Bryan, if anything, is heading in the wrong direction.
