Just yesterday, the rumors about Daniel Bryan being tested by WWE doctors to return to the ring were ultimately proven to be false. However, it is possible that the original sources misheard or misunderstood exactly what was happening this week as far as Daniel Bryan’s health being evaluated.
According to several sources, Bryan has been cleared by a UCLA doctor after he underwent several grueling tests. He has been cleared by his own personal doctor for months and months to return to the ring, but WWE’s doctor Dr. Joesph Maroon has refused to clear the former WWE Champion based on concussions concerns for his long-term health.
It’s possible that Daniel Bryan felt it was necessary to get another opinion from a highly qualified doctor to ensure WWE that he is fit to wrestle immediately. This issue has gone on for so long that Bryan has had almost a year to recover from nagging injuries and whatever issues he was having with his shoulder.
After being cleared by this UCLA doctor, it’s possible this will force WWE to evaluate Daniel Bryan once again and finally get him back into the ring once and for all.
