With under a year left until free agency, Daniel Bryan is already garnering interest from outside companies.
Joe Koff has went on the record multiple times stating his desire to talk to Bryan about his contract status. During a recent interview with the AV Club, Koff again said that pending Bryan's health, there could be an ROH reunion. He also confrimed that Bryan's deal with WWE ends next September.
"I'm not gonna give you odds, I wouldn't even know how to set those. Bryan's under contract with the WWE, from what I understand, until September 2018. If he chooses not to renew that contract, and he is able to wrestle from a health standpoint, I would welcome him. It would be a triumphant return. I think we would be the right place for him, the right fan appreciation, the right respect from the industry plus management plus everybody. But there's so many variables in that. Even though it's not far away, a year in wrestling is a long period of time. But he is more than welcomed to come back and I would love to have him on our roster," said Koff.
For now, Bryan is off serving as the General Manager for WWE's Smackdown brand. He's been out of the ring for two and a half years after experiencing concussion related issues.
