While speaking with FOX Sports, Daniel Bryan explained why he hasn’t signed a new deal with WWE yet and mentioned that it has to do with a lawyer looking over his contract.
“There’s a couple of things like that [how much time I get to spend with my family]. This is the first time in my career, ever – the thing that’s taking so long with all of it is I’ve never hired a lawyer before to look at a contract, so this is the first time I’ve done it, so it just takes longer than usual (laughs).”
“My last contract I think I signed in 2012. So then, I wasn’t married – Brie and I were together, but I wasn’t married – so you’re just trying to get all of your ducks in a row, especially because I’m older, and married, and have a baby.”
“It’s the responsibility and it’s crazy because a lot of us as WWE superstars, we end up not getting lawyers to look at our contracts, we just look at it and go ‘oh, ok, what’s this number, what’s this number? Oh fine, whatever,’ without reading the fine print.”
Bryan’s contract is set to expire on September 1st. Bryan mentioned earlier this week that he intends on sticking around in WWE.
