WWE officially announced today that Daniel Bryan has been cleared to return to the ring. It was stated that he was medically cleared by neurologists and concussion experts, including Dr. Robert Cantu, Dr. Javier Cárdenas and Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher. It was noted that he was also cleared by WWE's Medical Director, Dr. Joseph Maroon.
Bryan's last match was in April of 2015 when he suffered a concussion. He retired the following February after an EEG test revealed slowing of brain activity and a "small, subacute lesion" in an area of his brain that causes seizures. Bryan was on the Edge & Christian podcast last August and revealed that his retirement may have been premature.
Now we know he was right and Daniel Bryan is back in the business he loves most! Yes, he never left, but Daniel Bryan can now wrestle again in a WWE ring again!
