Daniel Bryan’s WWE status has been a hot topic for months now, as the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion’s current deal is set to expire on September 1st.

Bryan has said that he will most likely sign a new deal with WWE, but he has yet to officially sign a contract.

The SmackDown Live star recently spoke to Fox Sports about what’s holding up the process, and he said that there are still a few details that need to be ironed out.

“There’s a couple of things like that (how much time I get to spend with my family),” he said.

Bryan also noted that he hired a lawyer for the first time in his career, which has extended the process.

“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).”

Ultimately it sounds like Bryan will likely be signing with WWE again, it’s just a matter of time.
