— Appearing on the Sam Roberts Podcast, Daniel Bryan spoke of his future plans and indicated that when his contract expires next month, he is very likely to remain with WWE.
“I think at this point it would be 90-plus percent. It’s very likely I’ll re-sign with WWE.”
— There has been much speculation on Bryan’s status moving forward for many years as he had previously hinted that he likely would not re-sign with WWE if he wasn’t cleared to return to the ring by the company’s medical staff. That obviously happened earlier this year, which pretty much got rid of the biggest single obstacle preventing the two sides from agreeing to a new deal.
— There are also some other points to work out, including Bryan’s desire to work a more limited schedule, which he noted in the podcast by saying that there are still some details left to work out, but as of the first week of August, he had not signed any extensions or contract (which is contrary to what was reported online last month).
