There's been a lot of speculation on Daniel Bryan's status after he was pulled from all upcoming WWE live events where "Daniel Bryan Appreciation Night" festivities were planned, the post-WrestleMania UK tour and his VIP Signing at WrestleMania 32 Axxess. WWE confirmed to us this week that Bryan requested time off and it was granted.

According to a source, things between WWE and Bryan are said to be strong and their relationship has not changed. No word yet on why he requested the time off but a source noted that while rumors are going around, nothing is confirmed.

Bryan's wife Brie Bella missing this week's RAW and SmackDown added to the speculation surrounding his Bryan's status. Brie is still scheduled for the Team Bella vs. Team BAD 5-on-5 match at WrestleMania 32. Fans online have been speculating that she may be pregnant but as you can see in the photo below, she was doing MMA training with Neil Melanson and Mike Chandler at the Jaco Hybrid Training Center in Boca Raton, Florida today:
