Daniel Bryan is currently resting at home, and WWE higher-ups are certain that the five-time world champion will return to action. One unnamed WWE official is "very confident" about his comeback.
A person close to the situation revealed that there is no bad blood between both parties. Vince McMahon believes Bryan needs some time off to "recharge his batteries" and that the veteran wrestler will be back when he is ready.
Here's what the source told WrestlingNews.co:
"There is no bad blood, no grudge from either side, and Vince thinks he will be back, but he just needs time to recharge his batteries."
Any money-related problems were also ruled out as WWE has reportedly taken excellent care of Daniel Bryan. The 39-year-old superstar returned to in-ring action in 2018 and has since been treated well by the company.
