The latest on Bryan Danielson’s release from WWE is that people who needed to know were told Danielson was cut for choking ring announcer Justin Roberts with his tie during the “NXT invasion” angle on Monday night. The shot involving Roberts was edited from replays of the show. The only thing that is being discussed right now is that WWE felt choking with a tie was too violent for what is allowed on television right now. From all accounts, Danielson was described as being well liked backstage during his tenure with the company.
