Daniel Bryan gives interesting answer about a possible WM return


While doing media in Abu Dhabi this weekend, Bryan Danielson was asked the direct question about whether he would team with Shane McMahon against Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn at WrestleMania, and he gave a very interesting answer.

"I don't know and I don't think they know," Danielson told The National in the United Arab Emirates. "I think it all depends on whether or not I get cleared.

"As of this moment, as of today (this interview was conducted several hours ago), I am not cleared by WWE. I have done everything in my power, everything they have asked me to do, and I have gone above and beyond as far as, `Okay, what doctors do you need me to see. Send me to any doctor you want, any doctor that you want and lets get their feedback on what is going on with me.' So far, every doctor has cleared me that they have sent me to and there is a chance. I used to think that the percentage of the WWE even clearing me was low. I think with the stuff that I have done it has gone a little higher but I don't know how much higher. With how everything is, there is one way to go if I don't get cleared and there is another way to go if I am cleared. I am hoping to be cleared, but I don't know which way it goes."

The angle that was shot and the change in the original WrestleMania plans of late involving McMahon, Owens, and Zayn, reflects that something has changed.

This is a situation we've been monitoring closely for a long time. There has been movement over the past month and protocols that have taken place. There are new doctors who have cleared him in recent months after his belief that his brain has responded favorably to hyperbaric chamber treatment, a treatment that football legend Joe Namath has been doing and has claimed great results from. Danielson first found out about this treatment about one year ago. My feeling is that at this point, if he does get cleared, they would do an immediate storyline and make an announcement of the tag team match.

A few weeks ago we had received certain information about strong moves by him to attempt to get cleared and last week, as noted by the tease in the Observer this week, the specifics that if he is cleared he would be in the tag team match was noted.

In another story regarding top talent, AJ Styles missed last night's house show in Odessa, Texas, and it was announced he was injured in Madison Square Garden. He didn't wrestle in MSG but the way it was laid out made it appear to be an angle shot at the start of his match to take him out and protect him from doing the match. At this time it is not confirmed the severity of the injury.
