A week after being cleared to wrestle for WWE again, Daniel Bryan's return match was announced on SmackDown last night.

Bryan issued a challenge to Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn for WrestleMania 34. If they defeat him and Shane McMahon, who was announced as Bryan's partner despite his hospitalization, in a tag match at WrestleMania, they'll be reinstated and get their jobs back. If they lose, they'll remain fired in storyline.

Bryan said Owens and Zayn tried to take his dream of wrestling again away from him when they attacked him last week. He closed the promo by promising to kick their asses at WrestleMania.

Also on SmackDown, Shinsuke Nakamura played mind games with AJ Styles ahead of their WWE Championship match, Rusev pinning Randy Orton in a tag match led to him being added to the United States title picture for WrestleMania, and The Usos vs. New Day vs. Bludgeon Brothers was officially set for New Orleans.
