WWE made the decision to send Daniel Bryan to the Comic Con event in Chicago this week, and they might be regretting that now. The former world heavyweight champion was asked about merchandise. Bryan stated that he has been poor before, so he has no qualms with fans making their own shirts instead of buying official gear. He actually encouraged people to do so. Management might not like those comments much.
