WWE says Daniel Bryan medically cleared to return to in-ring action

World Wrestling Entertainment today announced SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan is clear to wrestle.

“Following more than two years of extensive evaluations, four-time World Champion Daniel Bryan has been medically cleared to return to in-ring competition by leading neurosurgeons, neurologists and concussion experts, including Dr. Robert Cantu, Dr. Javier Cárdenas and Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher,” said the WWE.

Bryan underwent a full review of his medical history and received comprehensive neurological and physical evaluations independent of WWE. He was cleared by each doctor as well as WWE’s Medical Director, Dr. Joseph Maroon.

He is rumoured to take part in the Shane McMahon, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn storyline – maybe teaming with Shane v Kevin and Sami at Wrestlemania 34.

After enjoying numerous championship runs, battling in legendary rivalries as both a singles and tag team competitor and sparking the epic “Yes!” Movement, Bryan was forced to make an emotional decision to retire from competition in February 2016.

Later that year, he became the SmackDown LIVE General Manager, where he has continued to be an active part of the blue brand.
