The Leader of the Yes Movement’s future in WWE is in doubt following his banishment from SmackDown on Friday.
Daniel Bryan put his SmackDown career on the line in a match against Universal Champion Roman Reigns during last Friday’s SmackDown. Reigns added the stipulation that if he was to defeat Bryan, which he did, he would be banished from the blue brand.
WWE have now moved Bryan to the alumni section of their website, as seen below, adding even more confusion to his next move within WWE.
WWE have moved Superstars to the alumni section in the past for storyline purposes, such as Sonya Deville and Roderick Strong, with Deville remaining there despite returning to television.
Bryan has clarified during recent interviews that his contract, which he signed in 2018, is expiring soon, with aspirations to work with other companies on a part-time status. Several reports noted that his contract could be expiring this September, however Bryan himself confirmed that that isn’t the case.
