Maybe half an hour ago, it was officially announced by WWE that Daniel Bryan has been medically cleared to return to the ring. The official statement reads: "Following more than two years of extensive evaluations, WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan has been medically cleared to return to in-ring competition by leading neurosurgeons, neurologists and concussion experts, including Dr. Robert Cantu, Dr. Javier Cárdenas and Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher. Bryan underwent a full review of his medical history and received comprehensive neurological and physical evaluations independent of WWE. He was cleared by each doctor as well as WWE's Medical Director, Dr. Joseph Maroon." The statement also has a bunch of background information on the doctors, what they're currently doing, etc. and they're essentially top guys in their fields. All we can do now is cross our fingers and hope Bryan doesn't regret getting what he wished for. I'd love to see him return as much as anyone, maybe more than most, but I'd hate to see him suffer worse injuries. He's a grown man, however, so it is what it is. I don't know that I'm really surprised by this. On one hand, you know WWE has done pretty much anything it can to protect itself from any sort of liability but it's also been obvious for a long time that they didn't wanna let Bryan go. Otherwise, they'd have let him out of his contract instead of insisting that he stay on in WWE in his current role. His current deal is set to expire later this year and Bryan was said to be completely serious that if he couldn't wrestle in WWE, he'd go somewhere else.
