It's been four months now since the shocking news was revealed that Daniel Bryan was retiring from professional wrestling after a string of concussion-related problems.

Bryan, almost certainly the most loved superstar on the entire WWE roster, had been off television for ages since suffering a concussion during the WWE's European tour in 2015 and a brain scan noted that he was showing some symptoms of brain damage. 

Well, it's been months now since we've seen Bryan in a WWE setting but fans won't have to wait much longer. That is after the WWE announced The American Dragon's participation in the Cruiserweight Classic.

The company sent out a statement today detailing the two hosts of their inaugural Cruiserweight Classic which is taking place on the WWE Network.

Those two men? SmackDown commentator Maura Ranallo and Daniel Bryan. 

The new duo will present the first edition of the 32-man, single-elimination tournament on July 13 at 9pm Eastern.

"Bryan brings a unique perspective to the announcers’ table, just months removed from his retirement as an active in-ring competitor," the WWE's statement read.

Interestingly, it also noted the fact that he competed against several of the Cruiserweight Classic competitors, despite the fact that hardly any of them have ever been in the WWE.

"Not only does he know what it takes to make it with the WWE Universe watching, but Bryan is a contemporary of several CWC competitors. During his illustrious 16-year career, he trained with and competed against the likes of Brian Kendrick, Zack Sabre Jr., TJ Perkins, Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano."

Bryan has done commentary before, showcasing his love of bears and bear puns.
