Daniel Bryan’s WWE contract is due at the end of the year, and a number of fans are worried that the former ROH standout may not renew his deal. A lot of this scepticism came to the fore after Bryan suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Rusev on the most recent episode of SmackDown Live.
However, Bryan Alvarez assuaged some of these concerns, stating that Bryan was in the middle of a slow build to a world title program. Alvarez also stated that the former World Champion would remain with WWE even after his current contract. (H/T: Ringside News)
