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.”
