Daniel Bryan is back. YES! YES! YES! YES!

The ultimate underdog in the WWE has made his dramatic return to the company just months after he was forced to retire due to numerous injury problems.

Bryan had been recovering from serious concussion problems and was eyeing a return to in-ring action, but he finally made his decision to retire earlier this year after sending out a tweet confirming the news before then appearing on Raw and delivering an emotional farewell speech.

However, five months later and Bryan is back with the WWE and back on our TV screens. Not as a wrestler, but as SmackDown LIVE's new general manager.

It was revealed on Monday Night Raw that it would be Bryan leading Shane McMahon's SmackDown, and Mick Foley leading Stephanie McMahon's Raw.

Although Bryan was the expected appointment, the place erupted when his music hit and when he shuffled down the ramp performing his trademark YES! chant.

The decision to bring Bryan back to TV screens wasn't a last minute job, however, as the former superstar agreed to the role two months prior to the Raw show.

According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, Bryan agreed to be SmackDown LIVE's general manager back in May, and was expected to make his return a month earlier.

The original plan was to have Vince McMahon announce the WWE Draft and brand split the night after Money In The Bank, which took place in June, and also have Bryan return the same night.

However, WWE altered the original plans, which is a regular occurrence with the company, and they announced the brand split at the end of May.
