It will be announced at the end of this week's SmackDown that Daniel Bryan will face Kane in a stipulation match on next week's Raw, according to reports.
The go home episode before WWE Royal Rumble 2015 will see Bryan go up against his former teammate in a match that, if he loses, will see him kicked out of the Royal Rumble match.
The former tag team champions will collide again after their scheduled match on Thursday night SmackDown gets interrupted by Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble who's interference allowed Bryan to pick up the win over his old adversary.
Bryan was then targeted by Seth Rollins and The Big Show before the former World Champion escaped and was joined by Roman Reigns on the ramp.
It was then announced that Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Daniel Bryan would face Big Show, Seth Rollins and Kane in a six man tag match in the main event.

The face trio came out on top and it was then announced that the two would go one-on-one again Monday Night on Raw in a match that could see Bryan removed from The Rumble.
There were various rumors surrounding Daniel's return and whether or not he had been rushed back to WWE.
Injury worries for Bryan?
Kane focused on Bryan's injured shoulder and neck when he attacked him on Raw this week and this latest storyline could be linked to the fact that Bryan may not be as ready for ring action as the company first thought.
At the same time, Bryan wouldn't have to put on a great spot in the Royal Rumble, he could enter the ring and be put over by whoever is in there, avoiding his neck and shoulders.
That being said, Bryan never does anything by half and if he wants to be in Royal Rumble he will give 110% for the WWE Universe, even if it means he will injure himself further.
This could just be a clever ploy by WWE to gain more viewers on the final Raw before the annual January pay-per-view, either way, Kane and Big Show have also been added to the 30-man battle royal and further names could well be announced next Monday.
