Daniel Bryan Set for WWE SmackDown Live Return


After becoming a father to a baby girl, Daniel Bryan will return to WWE SmackDown Live soon.

Daniel Bryan became the SmackDown Live General Manager last summer, just before the second-ever WWE brand-split began. He’s held this position, while Shane McMahon has been the Commissioner of the Blue Brand.

However, for over one month, Bryan has been off of WWE TV. This is due to his wife, former WWE star Brie Bella, having their first child, Birdie Joe Danielson.

Well, get ready to chant “Yes! Yes! Yes!” again, as Bryan’s SmackDown Live return got confirmed on Friday night. It won’t happen at Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view, but a short time afterward, as the former Bearded Superstar announced on Twitter:

WWE.com followed up with its own official announcement:

"The General Manager will rejoin SmackDown LIVE at a critical juncture, just two days after WWE Money in the Bank, where not only will Team Blue’s men compete for a guaranteed WWE Championship opportunity, but the women will also battle in a Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a guaranteed SmackDown Women’s Title Match for the first time ever. Having won the Money in the Bank Ladder Match in 2011 and cashed in successfully to become World Heavyweight Champion, Bryan knows just unpredictable things can become once the Money in the Bank briefcase comes into play."

We’ll see how big of a role Bryan plays on Tuesday, as he and McMahon may have to sort through the potential chaos of Money in the Bank. This will see two Money in the Bank matches happen, also including a WWE Championship bout between Jinder Mahal and Randy Orton.
