SmackDown Live viewership increases with Daniel Bryan's announcement

SmackDown Live viewership increases with Daniel Bryan's announcement

During Tuesday's edition of Smackdown Live, in which Bryan serves as the general manager, he told fans about how his wife and fellow wrestler Brie Bella urged him to pursue his dream of returning to the ring.

"He underwent a full review of his medical history and received comprehensive neurological and physical evaluations independent of WWE", the company said in a statement. The big thing to focus on is the fact that Bryan is cleared to wrestle as much as he wants or as much WWE needs him to wrestle.

Daniel Bryan was forced to retire in February 2016 after a series of heartbreaking injuries and concussions. The news comes less than three weeks before WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans where Bryan won the WWE title four years ago.

While WWE's Universe is excited about Bryan's return, I'm not sure how wrestlers will react to the news given that it could ruffle feathers.

Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also are investigating. Tempe's police department released a statement late Tuesday afternoon updating progress on the investigation.

However, since the app also collected data of their friends, about 50 million total Facebook profiles were collected. He said the firm identified voters who might be swayed and targeted them with messages that may or may not be true.

Mostly sunny Monday; Snow chance on Wednesday
The biggest threat for tornadoes will be from Nashville to Birmingham and just west of Atlanta this afternoon and evening. Clouds will increase Monday ahead of the storm system but there won't be any precipitation, Samuhel said.

Word got out about Bryan's return on Monday night and early Tuesday morning and many WWE Superstars thought he was cleared but he actually wasn't at that time.

This means fans shouldn't expect a one-and-done sort of deal and his WrestleMania 34 contest - which is yet to be announced - could be followed up with some incredible dream matches the fans are desperate to see and equally, Bryan would want to compete in. Naturally, the two best friends went on the attack before departing from the building, and in his first appearance since being cleared, Bryan got some nice licks in as he was fighting off the duo. "And if you fight for your dreams, your dreams will fight for you", the former WWE Champion said. Seeing Bryan look bored as an on-screen authority figure and hearing of his battles with depression at home were upsetting, but now it's time to welcome back the single most popular babyface of the past decade. With Daniel taking sole control of SmackDown LIVE in Shane's absence, will the GM punish Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn for their actions? Kicks and running dropkicks for the first time in years as the crowd chanted "Yes!" in unison.

Bryan added, "And I have a lot to be grateful for".

Even before being allowed by WWE to return, Bryan has always teased coming out of retirement and hinted that he will sign with another promotion if he has to. Shinsuke Nakamura faces Rusev, Charlotte Flair takes on Natalya, and there are a few other matches throughout the show.
