Daniel Bryan's status with WWE has been up in the air for the best part of a year, after suffering a career-threatening concussion back in April. Since then Bryan has been battling with the company to make a return to the ring.

 

His own doctors have cleared him on numerous occasions, but WWE's own top doctor, has consistently refused to clear him.

In the last several months, WWE has had lengthy discussions with Bryan that while he is unable to return to the ring there are a number of other roles the company would be willing to offer him such as an announcer's position, Bryan is believed to have turned that down adamant that he wants to return to the ring.
