Daniel Bryan’s WWE contract expired a few weeks back and the company is trying their best re-sign the former WWE Champion.
Bischoff believes Bryan will return soon
Eric Bischoff predicted that Daniel Bryan would sign a new contract with WWE. However, he said that he could sign with the WWE Creative team, where he has previously worked with. Bischoff recalled that he had worked with Bryan in the past and believes he could make his comeback.
“I’ve only worked with Daniel Bryan briefly. My thinking is that he is going to come back to WWE, perhaps not as a performer, as talent; I see him on the creative side of the table. I think he is a very creative guy. He’s got good instincts. I know that Vince McMahon respects him. I experienced that while I was there, so my bet, he will re-sign with WWE, but he will get more involved either in creative or as a producer,” added Bischoff.
Bischoff also note that Daniel Bryan’s father-in-law, John Laurinaitis, is the Head of Talent Relations and there is a possibility that he could have been assigned to convincd the former WWE Champion to rejoin the company.
“Well, I think he may be under a little bit of pressure from his step-father-in-law and all of you who are listening who don’t know, it’s a little bit of a family affair going on in the WWE with regards to the Daniel Bryan family because Johnny Laurinaitis, aka, Johnny Ace is the head of the talent relations, the guy who has the responsibility to sign new talent and manage existing talent, umm, he is actually Daniel Bryan’s father-in-law. A little weight, isn’t it?”
Only time will tell if Bryan would pen down a new deal with WWE in the future.
