– Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez spoke on the latest issue of Wrestling Observer Radio about the status of Daniel Bryan after his contract expired last week. The 39-year-old’s working paper ended last Friday, April 30, 2021 at midnight, just a few hours after his match against the WWE Universal Championship match against Roman Reigns on “Friday Night Smackdown”. It is now known that he did not sign a 3-year contract in September 2018, but a contract that tied him to the company until shortly after “WrestleMania”. In the run-up to “WrestleMania 37” Bryan had repeatedly said that this could be his last “WrestleMania”, which of course now appears in a slightly different light. Bryan Danielson, his real name, is currently free agent and he could now appear at any other company. According to Meltzer, nobody knows what Bryan’s future looks like at the moment, except maybe Bryan and his immediate family.
– According to information from the PWInsider, the new team of Randy Orton and Riddle is not planned as a short-term storyline, rather RK-Bro should receive a significant push. So you want to use the unequal duo together for some time, even if it is not yet exactly clear what the push should look like and whether it will include a run as RAW Tag Team Champions.
