Huge name rumored to be returning at Royal Rumble
It’s been a while since Daniel Bryan was last seen on WWE programming. The bearded superstar has been out with a concussion ever since winning the Intercontinental championship in a ladder match at Wrestlemania 31.
Since then numerous reports of Bryan being evaluated for a return have surfaced. It has been rumoured that despite being cleared for an in-ring return by outside doctors, WWE is still going with further tests to confirm his full recovery.
The up and down roller coaster ride of Daniel Bryan’s fight to return to the ring continues with the latest news that Daniel Bryan has officially been cleared to return to the ring by a UCLA neurology specialist.
With this news coming out, WWE may be forced to clear Bryan to wrestle again and his return may come as soon as this Sunday at the Royal Rumble paper view. But one must keep in mind, for Bryan to return he must be passed by WWE’s doctor Dr.Joesph Maroon who has been reluctant to clear him to wrestle again for his long term health.
Though everything at this point is only rumoured but it’s up to the WWE to make up for the loss of star power, due to various top superstars being injured, by injecting Bryan into the Rumble match.
His presence will provide a huge boost to the match itself, though it’s highly unlikely that, if he returns at the Royal Rumble match, he will walkout as the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion as Roman Reigns is heavily favoured to retain the championship.
