There were some talents expecting Daniel Bryan to make his return at the Royal Rumble on Sunday night. As noted, Bryan has been out of action since early 2015 with a concussion. Bryan was cleared by the doctors at UCLA last week but has yet to be cleared by WWE and Dr. Joseph Maroon.
WWE told Bryan at one point that he was not going to be cleared and has been offered other jobs in the company.
Bryan then spoke with Vince McMahon to argue his case to get back in the ring. Vince said that he probably wouldn’t be cleared but didn’t say that’s 100 percent.
