Daniel Bryan is rumored to be in Los Angeles, California, which is the site of tonight's WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. The rumors are coming from reporter/book author Scott Keith, has broken news in the past. He is most known for reporting that John Cena is likely taking time off from WWE to host a fitness reality show for FOX.
He posted the following:
I landed in LA about 2 hours ago. It was a fairly empty flight, but one Bryan Danielson happened to be sitting a few seats in front of me. Yada Yada Yada, I feigned ignorance as to whom he was, chatted him up. I lied and said I was a neurologist, and he told me that he had actually just been cleared from a concussion and was going back to work tomorrow. He didn’t tell me what he did, so it’s not as if he confirmed it, but it doesn’t take rocket appliance to put two and two together. Do with this info as you wish, worst case Ontario you post this email, I’m wrong, and Bix talks about how dumb you are for the Nth time.
We have not heard anything about Bryan appearing on the PPV.
For months, Bryan has stated in interviews that WWE’s doctors will not clear him to return to in-ring action. Bryan went to an independent doctor, who did clear him.
WWE has cracked down on concussions as of late and with Bryan’s long history of suffering them, his future as an in-ring competitor is still up in the air. Bryan stated in a recent interview with IGN a few week's back that he would be meeting with a third doctor shortly to see if he can get cleared by the doctor and prove to WWE that he's ready to compete again.
