UPDATE #1: Daniel Bryan’s contract status revealed.
UPDATE #2: Daniel Bryan reveals why he was forced to retire.
Daniel Bryan announced earlier today his retirement from in-ring wrestling, which was also confirmed by WWE.
News is now trickling out what led to his retirement decision; one Daniel Bryan didn’t want to make after getting cleared by several doctors for in-ring action, but not WWE’s own physician.
It is being reported that Daniel Bryan had asked for his release from WWE so he could wrestle elsewhere. However as his contract has been frozen due to his injury status, Daniel Bryan has no right or ability to even ask to be released from his contract.
The only way Daniel Bryan could legally attempt top do so is by taking WWE to the courts.
Considering his wife, Brie Bella, remains active on the WWE roster and for other reasons, its seems like retirement from in-ring action was the only option for Daniel Bryan.
What Daniel’s Bryan out-of-ring role in WWE remains to be revealed.
