Daniel Bryan has expressed optimism that he’ll resign with WWE.
In an interview with The Business Times during WWE's recent stop in Taipei on July 1, it was mentioned that Bryan is currently in negotiations with WWE for a new contract, which is set to expire on September 1. Bryan said in the interview that chances were good when it came to re-signing with the promotion.
"The wrestling world is an interesting world right now," he said. “But I love working with WWE and my wife is a part of WWE and so there’s a good chance I’ll re-sign."
Before he was cleared to wrestle back in March, Bryan hinted that if he wasn’t cleared to return while under contract to WWE, he would likely leave to resume his wrestling career on the independent scene. Medical Director for WWE Joseph Maroon eventually did clear Bryan, who returned to the ring at WrestleMania 34 teaming with Shane McMahon to defeat Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.
Bryan is next expected to team with Kane to take on The Bludgeon Brothers for the SmackDown tag team titles tomorrow at Extreme Rules.
