Daniel Bryan reportedly the main crux of the discussion between WWE and NJPW. The former WWE Champion’s contract recently expired.
Axxording to recent reports, WWE are looking to establish a relationship with NJPW and became their exclusive American partners. According to Dave Melzter this has been done to keep the Japanese promotion from their rivals in the United States.
While that may be true, PWInsider adds that much of their talk has revolved around former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan and the potential for him to be able to work some dates for NJPW. The report adds that the companies have been talking for months and this has been confirmed by sources in both companies.
Daniel Bryan reportedly the main crux of the discussion between WWE and NJPW
“There have been communications between the two sides for several months but the main crux of it was over the potential of Daniel Bryan being able to potentially work some dates in NJPW. Whether anything has come from those discussions remain to be seen. Is it possible the two sides could build a bridge to each other? Sure, but if so, it’s not happening right now and it’s not something that has happened yet despite talking for some time off and on.”
The report adds that this is not a case of NJPW’s working relationships with AEW and Impact Wrestling ending any time soon, at least due to any WWE involvement.
Interestingly, Daniel Bryan’s WWE contract has expired. He was last seen on WWE TV back on the April 30 SmackDown. He fought and lost to Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a Career vs. Title match.
