Today has been an incredible day for Daniel Bryan fans, as WWE officially announced that they have cleared the former World Heavyweight Champion for in-ring competition. When exactly Daniel Bryan will be returning to the ring is unknown, but he took to Twitter to confirm that he will be addressing his status at the beginning of SmackDown Live tonight.
Saying goodbye to the ring was one of the hardest moments of my life. But thanks to the amazing people supporting me, I was able to keep fighting for my dream. This moment feels surreal and I'm glad to be able to talk to you all at the beginning of #SDLive tonight.
