• Vince McMahon Agreed To Let Daniel Bryan Work A Major Non-WWE Tournament
Daniel Bryan (now known as Bryan Danielson) is in All Elite Wrestling now, but he did receive a very good offer from WWE, where they agreed to let him wrestle outside the company.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon agreed to let Bryan take part in NJPW’s G1 tournament.
Bryan said the following during the post-All Out media scrum:
“WWE was so gracious with me as far as the offer that they gave me. They were gonna let me go do some other stuff on the outside, but, I hate to say this, Vince sometimes…he and I have a great relationship. I love him, I do.
Sometimes he’s overprotective of me. I want to be able to push my limits.
That’s one of the things that I love about this, is like the physicality of what we do out there and being able to push my limits and being able to do that here in a safe manner is one of the things that really drew me here.”
