WWE legend Daniel Bryan has finally been given the all-clear by doctors to return to the ring.
The 36-year-old four-time World Champion is set for a stunning WrestleMania 34 comeback next month after receiving the green light to fight again.
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.

The following day on ESPN, Bryan revealed that he suffered ten documented concussions while wrestling, but more might have been undocumented or misdiagnosed.
Superstar Daniel Bryan also said a recent EEG reflex test revealed slowing and a small subacute or chronic lesion in his brain’s temporoparietal region, which explained Bryan’s post-concussion seizures and led to his retirement decision.
Later that year, he became the SmackDown LIVE General Manager, where he has continued to be an active part of the blue brand.
