Update on Bryan's WWE Status & Possibility Of Leaving The Company
Friday, July 6, 2018
According to an article on WrestlingStandard.com, WWE is reportedly preparing for Daniel Bryan possibly leaving the company when his contract expires on September 1st. The report indicates that WWE is booking Daniel Bryan in matches and storylines that were originally planned for the rest of the year.
It was also noted that the current plan is for The Miz to interfere in Bryan's Extreme Rules Match to prevent Team Hell No from becoming The SmackDown Tag Team Champions, which will lead to Bryan facing The Miz at SummerSlam. The report also stated that The Miz is slated to win at SummerSlam, although there have been "loose talks" of Bryan winning if he were to sign a contract extension, which would lead to a final match at The Hell in a Cell PPV Event. Bryan reportedly recently hired the same agency as John Cena for his contract negotiations, which is why he still hasn't re-signed with WWE.
