Daniel Bryan retired this year in February 2016 after an illustrious 16-year career which saw him become a Ring Of Honor World Champion and a Four-time World Champion with WWE.
His popularity soared in 2013, and the unreal amount of fan support that he had, got him to the main event of Wrestlemania XXX, where he stood tall to end the 30th anniversary of WWE’s Superbowl.
Last year after May he suffered another concussion and he was on the shelf. He had been cleared by multiple doctors and was very anxious to return. However, one important advanced test forced Vince McMahon to call him and tell him that he had to retire. Thankfully the timing allowed Bryan to say goodbye in his home state of Washington.
Bryan was supposed to attend Arizona State University post-retirement to study, but WWE had given him a call and told him he was going to be Smackdown Live General Manager. There was no ifs or buts about it, as he was and technically still is under contract until 2018.
The question is, from his WWE tenure, what has his Net Worth amounted to, and what are his earnings as per his WWE contract?
The Richest reported that The American Dragon’s Net Worth is estimated to be, $2 Million.
His wife Brie Bella has an estimated Net Worth of $1.7 Million, making their total Net Worth $3.7 Million.
According to totalsportek.com, Bryan earns an estimated $700,000 per year from his WWE contract. The number was updated around the time he retired so it is unclear whether there were any alterations in his contract, but it is presumably not the case as he is still signed to the same talent contract.
In 2012, The Richest reported that Bryan’s salary was $620,000 per year. However, the two years following that was when his status in the company shot up significantly.
Bryan said that he still considers breaking his contract and going out and wrestling on the Independent circuit. However, he is now a father-to-be with Brie Bella who recently announced she was pregnant, so he has publicly said that for his family he would not return to the ring and risk his life.
It looks like, for at least the next two years, Bryan will be the General Manager of Smackdown Live. It is only then when he can decide if he wants to renew his contract or potentially wrestle again.
