Why did Daniel Bryan leave WWE?

However, no matter under which promotion he is going to wrestle, Daniel Bryan will always remain special to WWE fans. Bryan earned massive love and attention from the crowd like very few stars in the company’s history. Despite having numerous greatest moments and accolades during his tenure, he eventually lost his spark for working with the company.

No matter how shocking it might sound, he noted in a past interview,’ ‘I felt very out of body in it. When I’m wrestling, I feel everything and feel like I’m enjoying it and I am having fun. This was weird. I was out there and it felt like I was detached.’

The promising AEW star also wanted to move his focus a bit toward his kids. AEW provides him with that opportunity by offering a more flexible schedule than WWE.
