Daniel Bryan May Be Able to Make Bigger Money Elsewhere

In the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer, Dave Meltzer commented on Daniel Bryan’s WWE contract and the fact he may be able to make big money wrestling elsewhere when his deal is up. The Miz recently called Bryan out on his love of wrestling, suggesting he should go back to the indies if he loves it so much on Tuesday’s Smack Talk on the WWE Network.

The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion was forced to retire in February when WWE doctors wouldn’t medically clear him to return to the ring. Bryan recently admitted that being unable to wrestle led mental breakdown.

Now that Bryan is the company’s SmackDown Live General Manager his contract will continue to tick over until such a time when he is able to leave if he wishes. Meltzer noted in his report that Bryan could potentially make a lot more money main eventing for NJPW than he would for his GM role with WWE. He would also be able to make more money on merchandise outside the company than the small percentage makes within.

Bryan had a number of different opinions from Doctors before he retired, he ultimately went with the decision of the WWE medical team but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t explore other advice once his contract is up.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
