WWE released a statement ‘future endeavoring’ Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson).
It seems a legit firing because if it was an angle in which ‘Daniel Bryan’ was fired to make way for ‘Bryan Danielson,’ they wouldn’t have used both names in the press release.
I put a question mark at the end of the title because it’s so hard to believe. He was meant to be a future major star in the WWE, and unless he’s done something really stupid in his personal life, this seems like a really, frankly, stupid move, especially when he was so central in this new major storyline.
I’m not convinced yet for that reason, and I hope it isn’t true!
Update: It now seems very likely that the firing is legit, the reasoning being that his choking of ring announcer, Justin Roberts, was overly gratuitous. Personally, I don’t agree with that personally, but then again, it’s not up to me. Thankfully, it has also been suggested that Daniel will be welcomed back to WWE after a while, so we’ll have to wait and see about that. Or … it could be a work …
