    That phrase never say never which is used in wrestling a lot really is true.

    This actually put a huge smile on my face. Delighted for Bryan but hope he is used on a wayyjay keeps him healthy and safe

    Only thing I can say right now is "holy ****"

    Hopefully this ends the silly conspiracy theories that WWE were deliberately keeping him out of action. It was always a case of whether or not Joseph Maroon felt he was fit and able and it seems the treatments Bryan has taken have aided him in that regard.

    This time he will presumably perform much more sensibly as compared to the last time he returned when he continued doing extremely risky stuff and promptly got injured again.

    Fantastic news. Just in time for WrestleMania.

    I always thought the run he had a few years ago got the biggest crowd reaction since the attitude era.

    Had a feeling this would happen. Delighted.

    Great news

    Hopefully keep him away from the ring until one of the big 4. A miz fued would be great to start.

    Fantastic news

    For him to be cleared now he must really have the all clear

    So many good matchups going forward

    Styles, Nakamura, Rollins, Balor, Samoa Joe - and his probably Mania opponents KO and Zayn

    I'm stunned to be honest.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,836 ✭✭✭Pentecost


    Yes! Yes! (Someone had to..)

    I’m a bit disappointed they didn’t do the reveal live on Smackdown tonight but I guess they want a ratings boost. Delighted for Bryan he clearly was desperate to get back in there.

    Holy s**t balls. This is amazing news!!

    Book him against Brock


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,396 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    I can't believe they did not save this for Smackdown

    But I am so so thrilled.

    I'm still gobsmacked at this..


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,396 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    If Styles IS hurt, then Bryan vs Nakamura would be an incredible replacement.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,611 ✭✭✭✭ERG89


    Might as well clear him as he would just go somewhere else to wrestle


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,992 ✭✭✭✭Rjd2

    This. This. This.

    When he came back last time he was an idiot, stupidly dangerous spots in throwaway matches on SD ffs.

    He doesn't need to go close to as all out as he did in his previous run whatsoever as the crowd will cheer him no matter what.

    Still only 36 too so plenty of peak years ahead.

    Amazing news.

    Great news. But once again they ruined what would've been a brilliant surprise when he just starts attacking someone or is a surprise opponent.

    Interesting that this comes after I was reading yesterday that he had turned down a Mania match because they just wanted him to do light work. Guess they came to some kind of deal and now they're announcing this.

    Will we finally get the payoff/continuation to the feud with The Miz? Imagine if this wasn't announced and the Miz issued an open challenge.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,272 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    This is to sell WM on the Network as Bryan replaces AJ.


  • Registered Users Posts: 498 ✭✭TheBigEvil


    Bet he gets teamed up with Strowman for the tag team match at mania

    This sounds entirely false. Where did you read it?

    The dynamics at play are that on their end they want to be able to avoid a potential lawsuit or an avalanche of bad PR were he to wrestle and something went wrong, and on his end, he wants to able to do what he loves. The idea that they're going to clear him in a minimal nature, perhaps similar to how they used Bret Hart, feels wildly unlikely. For one they wouldn't be protected from a suit, and for a second, he would be unhappy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,836 ✭✭✭Pentecost


    It’d be funny if he still fecked off at the end of his contract.

    Can’t see Bryan being in anything other than a tag match with Shane against Sami/KO.

    He still could. Just cause WWE have cleared him doesn’t mean they’ll use him right.

    His booking will be key to if he hangs around or not.
