Update: Conflicting Reports On Daniel Bryan's WWE Status

Daniel Bryan will be staying with WWE according to a source of Fightful's.

Daniel Bryan's WWE contract is due to end in September and because of the growth in professional wrestling around the world and his long absence from wrestling before this year his relationship with WWE was being questioned.

Fightful was provided with information, saying that he'd signed a two-year deal. This was later clarified to reflect a three-month extension with three years on the table to be imminently signed, and already agreed upon. WWE, however, are under the impression they still have a year on Bryan's deal. Either way, Bryan will remain with WWE and international business partners have said that he'll be on their fall shows.

This week in an interview, Bryan said he was likely to stay with WWE because his wife worked there and he liked the company. Fightful was told that regardless, Bryan will likely play up that he hasn't signed, as he has media obligations next month ahead of the "expiration date."

On Sunday, Fightful Wrestling's Sean Ross Sapp learned followed up by tweeting that Bryan has agreed to a two-year deal with WWE, without creative control as some speculated. 

Fightful Wrestling has reached out to WWE for comment on Bryan. They did not reply. 

Following Sunday's WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view that saw Bryan lose in his tag team title efforts, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer refuted the report, saying that nothing had changed.

Fightful Wrestling will have live coverage and a recapping podcast for Extreme Rules and will continue to report on Daniel Bryan's WWE career status.
