After more than two years of retirement Daniel Bryan was cleared to return to the ring

As a wrestling fan and family member, John Cena is happy about Daniel Bryan's return. He also thanked his wife, WWE wrestler Brie Bella, for supporting him during the tough times. This led Maroon giving him a list of doctors he needed to see to be cleared.

Whilst he was ruled out of ring action since February 2016, Daniel has been working as the on-screen General Manager of SmackDown.

Daniel Bryan shows the beatdown of Shane McMahon and KO/Sami laugh about it. Sami says he kind of deserved it. Owens and Zayn laughed before Bryan pointed out how serious of a matter the attack really was last week.

At Fastlane, The Usos' battle with the New Day was interrupted when the Bludgeon Brothers assaulted all of them.

Will AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura have to watch each other's back ahead of WrestleMania?

Bryan then fired Owens and Zayn.

SmackDown Live got a huge boost in viewership this week after Daniel Bryan was cleared for competition.

There's so much lost time to make up for, so many fresh opponents Bryan can work and old rivalries to be rekindled.

Well, it certainly didn't take Bryan long to start getting those bumps in, huh? I don't think that that's a real secret.

We can't wait to see him back in the ring again. "To have her support and not just her support but to have her actively encourage me", Bryan said.


What else happened on SmackDown?

It was initially thought that Bryan might have left WWE in September in order to wrestle elsewhere such as in New Japan or ROH.

The WrestleMania WWE championship feud is taking a bit of a backseat on this Tuesday night, but given the Bryan news, that's completely understandable.

Baron Corbin def. Tye Dillinger by pin following the End of Days. This is just enough of a distraction for Natalya to sneak in a roll-up for the win.

Flair then composed herself and stopped Carmella in her tracks before the Money in the Bank contract could be officially cashed in.

Is this good for wrestling?

Harper stops Jimmy Uso in his tracks and lays him out with his signature discus clothesline.

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 awesome dream matches the fans are desperate to see and equally, Bryan would want to compete in.

Also expected on the show is the more fighting between Jinder Mahal and Bobby Roode in the US Title scene.
