The question remains - is Bryan 'Daniel Bryan' Danielson actually fired from WWE?
According to the WWE.com website, they note that "WWE has come to terms on the release of NXT first season rookie Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson) as of today June 11, 2010." Notice how they put BOTH 'Daniel Bryan' AND Bryan Danielson? That would appear to mean he's been released for real.
It should be noted though that according to one source I spoke with, they speculated that WWE was doing an angle where 'Daniel Bryan' is fired and Bryan Danielson will be his new ring name. This is not confirmed though and it doesn't seem to make sense seeing as WWE mentions both Daniel Bryan and Bryan Danielson in their release post.
We can also report that his WWE twitter name was just changed to Bryan Danielson and he mentioned it, saying "the winds of change are stirring."
WWE then announced Daniel Bryan had been future endeavored on the WWE.com website.
We'll have more on this tomorrow morning. Check back then.
