Daniel Bryan WWE Ban: In a massive development, WWE’s major superstar and the leader of the Yes Movement, Daniel Bryan has been banished from the Smackdown brand after his loss to WWE Champion Roman Reigns. Bryan recently took on Reigns for the Universal Championship on the last week’s Friday Night Smackdown with a special Career vs Title stipulation. And now with Bryan suffering a heartening loss in that match, he is no more allowed t feature on the WWE Smackdown brand.
After retaining his Universal Championship at the WrestleMania 37 in a Triple Threat Match featuring Bryan and WWE Hall of Famer Edge, Roman Reigns successfully defended his title on Smackdown recently in an incredible match. The Daniel Bryan vs Roman Reigns Smackdown match went on for more than 30 minutes with both the superstars fighting tooth and nail after which Reigns eventually retained his title by using his Guillotine Chokehold submission move.
In a massive update, WWE has shifted Daniel Bryan to its Alumni section on the official website. However, there is also a big chance that the Career vs Title stipulation was added in order to write him out of the company. It is also understood that Bryan’s contract was supposed to end by September this year but that was recently shot down by the wrestler himself.
“It’s funny that people gravitate towards the date ‘September,’ and I think it’s because that’s when my last contract ended, but it doesn’t end in September. I’m still trying to figure out what that looks like (schedule). You get to that point where it’s like, how long can I do this full-time and still be able to do those kinds of things with my daughter?” said Daniel Bryan in an interview with Keisha Hatchett of TV Line.
“What’s the right balance between part-time and that sort of thing? It may be that it’s just every once in a while when the urge strikes, or maybe like a schedule where it’s like eight months on, these months off,” he added.
However, there is also a big possibility that listing Daniel Bryan on the Alumni section might be part of WWE’s storyline just like what happened earlier with Roderick Strong after he “reigned” from NXT following WrestleMania weekend.
