As noted, WWE announced today that Daniel Bryan has finally been cleared to return to the ring.
Bryan took to Twitter this afternoon and revealed that he will discuss the big news during the opening segment of tonight's SmackDown episode. It will be interesting to see if Bryan keeps working as the SmackDown General Manager and what kind of WrestleMania 34 plans they have for him.
Below are more reactions to the big news with tweets from WWE Champion AJ Styles, RAW General Manager Kurt Angle, Ethan Carter III, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, Seth Rollins, actor Stephen Amell and others:
Saying goodbye to the ring was one of the hardest moments of my life. But thanks to the amazing people supporting me, I was able to keep fighting for my dream. This moment feels surreal and I'm glad to be able to talk to you all at the beginning of #SDLive tonight.— Daniel Bryan (@WWEDanielBryan) March 20, 2018

I couldn't be happier for Daniel. Being away for two years must have felt like an eternity...but today, he's back and where he belongs. https://t.co/HNtSw1RwKI— AJStyles.Org (@AJStylesOrg) March 20, 2018
