Details on the rest of Daniel Bryan’s contract

Daniel Bryan

It’s been two years since Daniel Bryan’s retirement from in-ring competition. The leader of the Yes movement has spent the last few years working as an on-screen figure, Smackdown Live’s GM. However, it’s no secret that Bryan has been wanting to wrestle again, and has been cleared by multiple doctors. However, he has yet to be cleared by WWE’s medical staff.

Last year, Bryan teased a match with Cody Rhodes in Ring of Honor when his contract was up. Since then, he’s made a handful of tweets hinting at possible matches with various talent from around the world. While it doesn’t look like WWE will be clearing Bryan, it’s possible he may be able to wrestle outside of the company, and now we know when that may happen.

According to Dave Meltzer, Bryan’s contract expires in 7 1/2 months. Meltzer was responding to a fan who was asking about the likelihood of Bryan’s in-ring return. Meltzer also stated that Bryan would likely not have to wait out a 90 day no-compete clause.

    1 or 2 matches I can agree with. But to go back wrestling full time is not a good thing.

    Personally I think it would be foolish and selfish of him to wrestle again.
    We all know how much it must hurt him to not be able to, but he has a wife and kid he has to consider now, not just himself.

    He is bringing home some decent coin now I am sure, and between his pay and his wifes, he does not need to wrestle again, but what he does need to be is there for his daughter as she grows up.

    I agree. I think that if he tells the WWE he’s leaving, they’ll either offer him a bunch of money to stay or they’ll give him 1 or 2 more matches.

    I am on the WWE side believe it or not when it comes to Bryan as I think he been away from the ring to long. He got a family to think about now too.

    Him versus Punk in the Tokyo Dome would be awesome.
