Daniel Bryan may finally find out the future of his WWE career this week, he is scheduled to visit Dr. Joseph Maroon in Pittsburgh, PA, Maroon is the head of the WWE Wellness testing program, according to PWInsider. Bryan will be hopeful that Maroon will take a second look at his case and clear him to return to the ring.
Vince McMahon has been going back and forth on what to do with Bryan, if he is to be cleared there is a strong chance we will see him as a surprise entrant in the 30-man Royal Rumble match.
Bryan has been cleared by his own personal Doctor but medical testing conducted by WWE last year indicated that they were not prepared to do the same. Bryan has made it clear that if he can’t return to the ring for WWE then he would be open to wrestling outside of the company.
Daniel Bryan will also be appearing at the Pittsburgh World Of Wheels show at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. He replaces an injured Seth Rollins.
It was previously reported that Mark Henry had apparently been removed from Sunday night’s WWE Royal Rumble Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship for reasons that had not been given.
However, in an update, Michael Cole announced on Monday night’s edition of Raw that Henry would, in fact, be one of the participants in the match. Furthermore, Cole also noted that Henry stated that this could actually be the final Royal Rumble Match that he competes in.
