Backstage Update on Daniel Bryan’s In-Ring Future, WWE and Brie Bella’s Retirement, More

We noted earlier this month that while Daniel Bryan was cautious about revealing plans for his future to anyone within WWE, he was trying to get out of his contract and speculation was that he wants to return to the ring, despite the health issues he has. We also noted that New Japan Pro Wrestling was very interested in making a big offer to Bryan when he became a free agent.

Word now is that an intermediary for Bryan, who had the contact with NJPW, recently told officials in Japan that they believe Bryan will not be wrestling any time soon. NJPW seemed confident about doing some kind of work with Bryan but it was said they’re surprised and confused about his change of heart.

On a related note, we’ve heard that WWE officials wanted Brie Bella to stay away from using the word “retirement” as much as possible during her last week or so with the company. WWE apparently did not want media picking up on the fact that two top stars, who are married, were retiring from the ring due to health concerns and their futures if they continued wrestling.
