Following last night’s State of the WWE Universe show on the WWE Network, we’ve gotten a bunch of emails from readers asking if Daniel Bryan is trying to get himself fired from WWE. Bryan has hinted at wanting to wrestle elsewhere since WWE took him out of the ring because of his concussion issues. He would not be able to wrestle anywhere unless WWE releases him and his contract doesn’t expire until 2018. Bryan has admitted before that took on the storyline General Manager role on Smackdown Live because he is still under contract and he was told to do it.
There were several awkward exchanges between Mick Foley and Bryan on the State of the WWE Universe show that aired after this week’s Monday Night Raw on the WWE Network. Things kind of got out of hand when Foley accused Bryan about not caring enough about his job. Bryan fired back and said that Mick Foley quit WWE in 2001 and then went to TNA. Bryan was off on the timeline but Foley did jump to TNA in 2008 after quitting his role as Smackdown color commentator.
I have no idea if Bryan is trying to get himself fired but he has been the best part of several episodes of Talking Smack and the unscripted dialogue between Foley and Bryan actually made last night’s State of the WWE Universe show more interesting.
