Daniel Bryan’s WWE contract expired and he decided not to sign a new deal. He clearly isn’t close to getting back at this point.
Vince McMahon’s company is getting back on the road and that means they want to bring back some big names. Goldberg is back and Becky Lynch is expected to return. At least he’s around backstage.
According to PW InsiderWWE and Daniel Bryan are not even talking at this time. There are also some who are under the impression that Daniel Bryan might be talking to AEW.
Internally, there has been no discussion of Bryan returning to WWE and he is not listed on the company’s roster. There are also some in the company who have taken this to mean that Bryan is signing or will eventually sign with AEW.
There was no confirmation that AEW is getting closer to signing Daniel Bryan at this time. He is not slated to have any future Mattel WWE action figures, and he was not part of the recent line of licensing and merchandising that WWE has rolled out.
This report is likely to spark a lot of speculation from AEW. Which is not impossible to imagine, but Daniel Bryan has also earned a lot of money from pro wrestling. Hence, he will be enjoying his time away from business at home with Brie and his kids.
