The WWE haven't been enjoying a good time of things as of late, with the ratings figures for Monday Night Raw being the worst they have in years.
RAW IN Ruins
With the company's biggest stars being part-timers like Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker, combined with John Cena only holding the United States Championship and the lack of a real face protagonist that the fans love, the WWE is really struggling.
Well, something could be coming along to correct that completely, with the news that Daniel Bryan could be set to finally make his return to the WWE.

According to a report from Marc Middleton of Wrestling Inc, the leader of the 'Yes Movement' is set to make a return during the WWE's European Tour in November.
This is around the time that John Cena is taking his break from the WWE. Cena won't be appearing on RAW or at house shows during November.
Maybe because of Cena's absence during this period, the WWE are bringing Bryan back in to try and make up for his loss, substituting in one top face for another.
At the time of writing, there is no clear indication on what Bryan's role will be at the events, if he will actually be wrestling inside the squared circle or just appearing and cutting promos etc.
Bryan has had a torrid time with injuries in the past year or so, first suffering a neck injury that forced him to vacate the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, then a string of concussions that led to him relinquishing the Intercontinental Title after WrestleMania.
Bryan had said in multiple interviews that he was fine and had been cleared to return by his own doctors, but the WWE were holding him back and were reluctant to send him back in to the ring. Maybe the ratings decline has forced the WWE to backtrack on this and now they are finally letting Bryan return.
