WWE Has Not Completely Shut the Door on a Daniel Bryan Return to the Ring

The following was reported by Forbes.com and you can read the rest of the article by clicking on the link below:

According to a source with inside knowledge, WWE has not completely shut the door on a Daniel Bryan return to the ring. Keep in mind, Bryan was cleared by doctors to return to the ring, prior to his retirement announcement, but not by the WWE medical team.

As of now, WWE is planning to continue the angle of wrestlers calling out Bryan for his retirement and taunting Bryan for not being able to wrestle. WWE knows it’s a hot button topic with fans and will continue to tease a Bryan return. While, at this time, it still remains unlikely that Bryan returns to the ring in the future, WWE has “not completely shut the door on a Daniel Bryan return to the ring”.



Charlotte Update

After her match against Sasha Banks at SummerSlam, Charlotte got yelled at backstage by WWE Officials for being careless with Banks, who was injured.
