WWE Wrestler Daniel Bryan Medically Cleared To Come Back Into The Ring

WWE Wrestler Daniel Bryan Medically Cleared To Come Back Into The Ring

After suffering multiple concussions throughout his career, WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan announced his retirement from the ring in 2016. He was also suffering medical issues, including seizures, which added to his decision to walk away from the sport.

But, two years on from that tough move, the 36-year-old has been medically cleared to return.

WWE's medical director Dr Joseph Maroon made the judgement that Bryan was fit for duty after looking over neurological and physical evaluations done by independent testers.

This is huge news for the world of wrestling as Daniel is a pretty decorated fighter. He's held the WWE Championship three times, WWE's World Heavyweight Championship once and was also a WWE Tag Team Champion.

He went into the sport in 1999 after graduating high school, joining the Texas Wrestling Academy and trained under Shawn Michaels and Rudy Gonzalez.

Bryan got a leg up the following year when he was signed into the World Wrestling Federation's development system. In 2002, he made his first two appearances in a WWE match but unfortunately, they didn't pan out well and he was quickly defeated.

During the early 2000s, he toured Japan and was a founding father at Ring of Honour, an independent ring promotion.

His real name is Bryan Lloyd Danielson, but was offered 10 stage names for his WWE career.

Buddy Peacock and Lloyd Bonaire were among the suggestions, but they eventually settled on Daniel Bryan - which sounds oddly normal when you've got people named the Undertaker, Triple H and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Bryan was drafted to SmackDown in 2011 and won the Money in the Bank ladder match, meaning he could request a World Heavyweight Championship match at any time in the following 12 months. After a failed attempt in November, he launched another bid against Big Show the following month and won.

His first medical issues emerged in 2014 when he said he lost all the strength in his right arm and announced he needed neck surgery. A year later he was pulled from a SmackDown match as a precautionary measure before he officially scrapped, with doctors saying he was 'medically unable to compete'.

Bryan officially declared his retirement in 2016 and hasn't given up hope of returning and now he's finally been given that chance.
