With less than just two weeks until WrestleMania 34, WWE fans won't want to miss this week's episodes of Raw and Smackdown Live. 

There's still a lot to be set up before the biggest annual event in the company's calendar with just two episodes of each show left. 

It was announced ahead of last week's Smackdown that General Manager Daniel Bryan has been cleared to return to in-ring action - for the first time in over two years. 

The final segment of Smackdown Live six days ago saw Bryan brutally attacked by Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn after the GM 'fired' them from the show. 

The pair were rumoured to be taking on Shane McMahon at WrestleMania - so surely, Bryan's return will give the commissioner a perfect partner - and we're expecting to find out tomorrow if that's true.   

Similarly, the red brand has a few things to sort out on tonights Raw. 

Last week, the Ultimate Deletion match between Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt closed the show. The segment ended with Hardy pinning Wyatt, announcing that he had finally been 'deleted'. 

That match likely ended the pair's feud - and may also be the beginning of a new era for the "Eater of Worlds" - with rumours suggesting that Wyatt's character is going to be repackaged.

Although the match was good and well received by fans - it could potentially leave the two involved without a storyline going into WrestleMania.

There's not really enough time to build any new feuds ahead of the event and it's unlikely fans really want to see another Wyatt v Hardy match, considering they've been fighting since November. 

The reason the feud was running for so long is because Matt's tag-team partner, Jeff Hardy, picked up a shoulder injury in August that was expected to sideline him for six months.

That meant Matt has been forced to go it alone - and had a good run doing so, but last weeks Ultimate Deletion suggested that Jeff's return could be close. 

He appeared at the end of the match and provided the distraction for Hardy to pin Wyatt. 

And according to PW Insider, Jeff has been seen backstage ahead of Monday's taping of Raw in Cleveland.

The website notes that it's not clear if he's going to feature on the show, but the fact he's backstage today suggests there's a good chance he'll return. 

And with two weeks to go until WrestleMania, he may be coming back into the fold at the perfect time, especially if the Hardy Boyz are able to force their way onto the card together.
