WWE Smackdown: Daniel Bryan is cleared to wrestle

22 March 2018

Daniel Bryan announced his return to in-ring action on Tuesday night, over two years after he was forced into retirement due to injury.

Per WWE: "Bryan underwent a full review of his medical history and received comprehensive neurological and physical evaluations independent of WWE". Opening SmackDown, Bryan further expanded on the announcement, making clear he would soon be wrestling again with no specific return date. He later told sports channels that he had been suffering from post-concussion seizures.

Bryan, whose real name is Bryan Danielson, stayed active in the WWE by taking the position of general manager for "SmackDown", at least in an on-screen capacity.

Trip wire may have set off bomb in Austin that wounded bicyclists
Police say at least two people died and two others were injured after exploding packages showed up at their homes in recent days. Austin's mayor says growing anxieties are "legitimate and real" following the fourth bombing in the city this month.

The timing of the news is fortuitous for WWE fans as the company's biggest event - WrestleMania - is less than three weeks away. While the science behind the effects of concussions is evolving all the time, it seems a bit dubious that Bryan's medical clearance comes "on the road to Wrestlemania", a time when the WWE would benefit the most from the surprise return of one of its highest-profile performers.

Bryan thanked the WWE and the doctors and said, "First and foremost, they looked at me as the person and not me as the wrestler, and for that, I will be forever grateful for them". As expected, Bryan and McMahon vs. Owens and Zayn is the plan. However, fans might be seeing a lot more from Bryan if he decides to stay on as WWE has now changed their stance, but whether or not that means Bryan decides to stay on remains to be seen. He could wrestle a broom to a five-star show, nevermind another outrageously talented performer like Daniel Bryan.

Will Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn face any repercussions from Daniel Bryan for their attack on Shane McMahon? "Getting to here, getting to cleared is like in someway an end but it's not the end to the journey, it's a continuation of the journey and what goes from here", Bryan continued. Bryan versus Shinsuke Nakamura, A.J. Styles or even his brother in-law, John Cena, makes some sense.

Bryan opened Smackdown Live Tuesday to discuss his journey from announcing his retirement from in-ring action in February 2016 to now being able to promise fans that he will again step into the squared circle as a Superstar.
