As speculation continues regarding Daniel Bryan’s future in WWE, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com recently revealed on the Wrestling Classics forum that Bryan “did give notice [to WWE] and was told he did not have the right to give notice.”
Meltzer added that Bryan was not allowed to give notice to WWE, as Bryan’s contract has been frozen due to an injury, a provision in Superstar contracts which helps WWE make up lost time when a talent is sidelined. If you recall, this is a similar situation Rey Mysterio found himself in when he was trying to leave WWE at the end of his last run.
In Bryan’s situation, it appears very true that he cannot ask for his WWE release at this time due his frozen contract, and the only real way he would be able to get a release from the company is if he took WWE to court.
