Even if they came just to hear Bryan talk, they stayed for good programming.
It is still the most recent of the great stories WWE has told. They are two of the best strikers in the modern era and have such unique personalities and looks that this match could be unlike anything else. This news opens up all new possibilities for not only Bryan's future, but for WrestleMania 34 which is just three weeks away.
The former four-time WWE Champion took to ring on Tuesday at the start of the Smackdown Live and addressed the WWE Universe. With fans chanting in joy and disbelief, Bryan said that after years of seeing doctors and working to get healthy, he was back, going as far as to tease his official return in a potential match at WrestleMania. Cena has been preparing to marry Bryan's sister-in-law Nikki Bella so Cena had more than one perspective to share. Bryan has stated the treatments have helped his brain heal over time.More news: FIU Bridge Collapse Survivor Sues For Reckless Negligence
What do you make of the lengths Daniel Bryan went to in order to receive clearance from WWE? There's no word yet on if WWE has plans for Bryan to wrestle before WrestleMania 34 but as noted before, Bryan is now free & clear to wrestle as much as he wants and as much as the company wants to use him.
"When I saw another specialist and they cleared me, [Brie] said, 'Listen, you need to fight for your dreams", Bryan said.
Upon the release of the major news, Daniel Bryan himself released a tweet about the moment and how he's feeling about it all. Fight for your dreams. He's also become more of a family man and reality television star, alongside his wife Brie, and their new daughter Birdie Jo.More news: Disney announces new Avengers, Marvel theme parks.

This means fans shouldn't expect a one-and-done sort of deal and his WrestleMania 34 contest - which is yet to be announced - could be followed up with some wonderful dream matches the fans are desperate to see and equally, Bryan would want to compete in. Bryan's contract was due to end in 2018, leading many to speculate that he would return to the indie scene to wrestle again once he was free from his commitments to WWE.
At this point, there has been nothing reported stating that influenced WWE's decision. After a successful independent career, Bryan made the move to WWE in 2010. With Daniel taking sole control of SmackDown LIVE in Shane's absence, will the GM punish Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn for their actions? (That didn't take long.) Bryan did mount some offense, including some Yes Kicks, to the delight of the crowd. As of this report, she has not made any retirement statements but has also not been involved in matches beyond being at ringside for her Absolution stable.
