Daniel Bryan hasn’t been seen on WWE television since WrestleMania 35. He was sent home following the show of shows with what was said to be an injury although the specifics were not made very clear.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter had good news to report in Daniel Bryan’s situation. Although it’s still unknown what kind of injury he was dealing with, Bryan is cleared to return and he was backstage at SmackDown in Columbus, but he wasn’t used. Therefore, it wouldn’t be a big surprise to see him written back into the storyline as early as next week.
It was also noted in a very interesting tidbit that had Daniel Bryan been cleared a week sooner, Kevin Owens wouldn’t have turned heel once again. This means that Bryan’s injury forced WWE to turn Owens heel which could indicate that once Daniel Bryan is back then there will only be room for one top heel on the blue brand.
Daniel Bryan is currently slated to work the upcoming European tour in May. He is being promoted to face Kofi Kingston for the WWE Title throughout that tour. We will have to wait and see where the chips fall in this situation.
