Daniel Bryan may not be able to wrestle at this year's WrestleMania due to his history of concussion-related injuries, but there's still a way the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion could participate in the show.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio speculated that WWE could use Bryan as a Special Guest Referee in one of the WrestleMania 34 matches, as he's not banned from refereeing for the company has he has done it several times recently.
Here's what Meltzer had to say about the possibility of Bryan serving as a Special Guest Referee at WrestleMania 34 (quotes via Ringside News):
"Daniel Bryan may end up at WrestleMania as a referee for all we know. I mean, he's not banned from refereeing and he did referee a match in Chicago a couple months ago.
"There are things he's allowed to do."
It should be noted that Meltzer didn't confirm that is what WWE actually has planned for Bryan at WrestleMania, however, they certainly have that option if they want to go down that avenue and get Bryan more involved in the show.
Bryan had been a top star in WWE for a short period of time when he won the WWE World Heavyweight Title in the main event of WrestleMania 30.
He defeated Triple H earlier in the night to earn his way into the World Title match at the end of the night against then-champion Randy Orton and Batista. Bryan defied all odds and won the title with a crossface.
For the next several years Bryan struggled with injuries that kept him out of the ring, and it's believed that his WWE career as an active wrestler has come to an end as it's unlikely the medical staff ever clears him to compete again.
He now serves as the General Manager for SmackDown Live but it's expected he'll leave the company to pursue wrestling elsewhere when his contract expires.
