Bryan Danielson will be appearing at the NWA Legends Fanfest on August 5th-8th in Charlotte, NC. Danielson will wrestle NWA Heavyweight Champion Adam Pearce on Saturday night and appear at the booth on Sunday morning from 10am until 1pm to meet fans. Some of the other names announced for the NWA weekend include Jim Ross, Sting, Ted DiBiase Sr., Rocky Johnson, Harley Race and others.

One of the stranger things about Daniel Bryan's WWE release is that Vince McMahon personally fired him via telephone late Friday night of last week, instead of having someone like John Laurinaitis do it. WWE creative and company executives were said to have no idea that any trouble with Danielson was even brewing. Some knew that there was heat from the tie incident on RAW but nobody expected that this would happen.
