WWE refutes rumors of Daniel Bryan’s release

The future of WWE superstar Daniel Bryan’s career with the company has certainly been in question the last few months. He hasn’t wrestled since aggravating a neck injury at Wrestlemania 31 last March.

Despite being cleared by his own personal doctors, Bryan has yet to be cleared by WWE doctors, mostly due to him possibly being a liability to the company. On Sunday, Scott Keith, who is known for running his website, Scott’s Blog of Doom, reported that he got an anonymous e-mail from a member of WWE’s Human Resources department that said they would be releasing Bryan sometime this week.

“This is going to be hard to believe and you probably get a lot of nutjobs writing every day – but I work in WWE HR. I’m not high up the totem pole by any means though.

So on Friday one of my co-workers had to process a release – and that release was for Daniel Bryan.”

It now seems those reports have been refuted by the company. Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc. reported that a WWE spokesperson denied those rumors Wednesday morning.

“There is no truth to this letter from a supposed WWE employee,” a WWE spokesperson told me this morning.

It’s hard to not want to believe Keith, however. He was the same person that first reported the rumors of John Cena’s two-month hiatus at the end of 2015 to film new reality TV show “American Grit.”
