WWE Champion Daniel Bryan is sticking around longterm.
On this week’s episode of the E! Network reality series Total Bellas, Bryan and wife Brie were talking about his future. Brie was encouraging Bryan to take advantage of social media more often, which can be used to develop his brand and lead to new business opportunities. Bryan said he’s not interested in being a businessman and revealed that he had recently signed a new 3-year guaranteed contract with WWE.
The episode was filmed around September of last year, which would keep Bryan with the world’s premiere sports entertainment company through around September 2021.

Daniel Bryan won the WWE Championship back on the November 13th, 2018 episode of Smackdown. He turned heel the same night by kicking AJ Styles low and winning the title by less than sportsmanlike means. The win would also mean Bryan would face Brock Lesnar at last year’s Survivor Series World Champion vs World Champion match, which Lesnar won.
Since then, Bryan has introduced a new environmentally-sustainable hemp WWE Championship belt. That title will be on the line this Sunday at WWE Elimination Chamber.
