Football News

Daniel Bryan and his fans have endured a roller coaster ride of emotions over the past 18 months or so.

The Yes! movement leader has seen the highs of becoming WWE champion and winning the Intercontinental title juxtaposed with devastating injury blows and rumors of enforced retirement.

Return update

Having largely remained silent on the worrying speculation, Bryan has finally offered the WWE Universe some clarity on the situation some clarity - revealing there is one thing in particular standing between himself and a return to the WWE ring.

"I feel great," the Superstar told Fox Sports. "And it's just a matter of getting cleared by doctors. Their whole clearance process is more difficult than people would think...That's the biggest issue."

"I will wrestle again. But it'll be interesting to see when."

Daniel Bryan's positive update coincides with a tweet he sent out denying speculation that he would be announcing his retirement in the near future, this after failing to fully recover from a neck injury which has seen him pulled from the WWE roster on two occasions already.

Date in mind

But while the bearded wrestler was unequivocal in his plans for a return to the ring, Bryan was a little more allusive when asked to pin down a date: 

"I don't know (if it will be in 2015). It's kind of in the hands of certain doctors, as far as them clearing me and what not.

He did, however, suggest an event he has in mind for what would undoubtedly be a popular appearance.

"My goal was to be back by SummerSlam, and that's looking less and less likely, and so then you're hoping to be back by Royal Rumble."

Injury nightmare

Having had to relinquish the WWE's top title back in June 2014 as neck surgery kept him out of action, Daniel Bryan's original return came during this January's Royal Rumble.

All seemed well for a while for Daniel Bryan but, unfortunately for the Superstar, history repeated itself this year. Once again won a title at WrestleMania only to have to give it up and face months in rehabilitation as scans revealed serious injury concerns remained.

He hasn't wrestled in WWE since being pulled from April's European Tour so to see him back for Royal Rumble would bring an up and down year full circle.

Even if we do have to wait until Janaury 2016, or even longer, the mere fact that Daniel Bryan is promising a return to the ring at all should be something to celebrate for WWE fans after a torrid past few months.
