Vince McMahon rejects most of Daniel Bryan’s ideas as a WWE writer. A top WWE name is rumored to ‘retire’ Daniel Bryan. RingsideNews.com’s Steve Carrier tweeted, “Daniel Bryan is a writer for SmackDown, and in a great spot at #WrestleMania, but it wasn’t all his call at all. We were told that “Daniel Bryan’s writing is just one of many people who make suggestions.” In reality, “he gets shot down more than most write.”
Bryan told Talk Sport, “It’s interesting because, one, I don’t have that big of a say [Laughs]. Sometimes something really great will happen on SmackDown and somebody will say ‘Oh, that’s Daniel Bryan!’ Like, that’s not me!” Bryan said.
“One part is our performers — we have incredible superstars. Cesaro is a no-brainer. When you say ‘Daniel Bryan helped Cesaro’ — no. All I did was ‘hey this guy is really good. We should put him on TV and use him!’ [Laughs].”
