Daniel Bryan was part of the early discussions between WWE and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, that is no longer the case.
Last week, Dave Meltzer reported that WWE and New Japan Pro-Wrestling were in communication about a potential working relationship. Later, Mike Johnson added that Daniel Bryan was the main crux of the talks between both promotions.
A new update from Dave Meltzer in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, notes that Bryan Danielson was a talking point of the early conversation between two organizations but he has not been mentioned in any recent talks.
Additionally, it is being reported that this was not a Nick Khan idea at first, but he’s been the “point man” in the discussions and there are those who believe that he has recommended Vince McMahon pursue the relationship.
Fightful continues to monitor the story and report any and all updates.
