Daniel Bryan will be released from his WWE contract next week, according to an insider tipster at Scott Keith’s Blog Of Doom website.

Keith published the e-mail he received from the informant –

“I work in WWE HR. I’m not high up the totem pole by any means though.

So on Friday one of my co-workers had to process a release – and that release was for Daniel Bryan.

Monday, January 18th is the date that is listed for when the deal is processed. Not sure exactly why – my coworker was very quiet about the whole thing other than letting a few people know.

And to be honest she didn’t let me know – I’m not in her inner circle. I just overheard her telling someone else and she was in shock.

Not sure why it’s a week away or anything like that as our usual releases are dated that very day. She seemed shocked by it all.”

I look at it like this. WWE has it's two biggest PPV in the next three months and the injury bug has hit the main roster pretty hard resorting in officals spending the BIG BUCKS bringing in HIGH PAID part-timers like one Brock Lesner.

Should be an interesting couple of weeks on WWE programming.
