WWE sent Twitter into raptures with the announcement that Daniel Bryan had been cleared for a return to the ring on Tuesday night. 

The official statement read: "Following more than two years of extensive evaluations, WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan has been medically cleared to return to in-ring competition by leading neurosurgeons, neurologists and concussion experts, including Dr. Robert Cantu, Dr. Javier Cárdenas and Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher.

"Bryan underwent a full review of his medical history and received comprehensive neurological and physical evaluations independent of WWE. He was cleared by each doctor as well as WWE's Medical Director, Dr. Joseph Maroon."

Bryan hasn't stepped between the ropes since June 2015 when he suffered a nasty concussion.

He was forced to retire in April of 2016 after an EEG test revealed reduced brain activity and 'small, subacute lesion.'
