Daniel Bryan could make his WWE return at the 2015 Royal Rumble
event after he gets his second surgery.
In addition, a source says that WWE did not know about Bryan
needing another surgery until his press conference about the burglary at his
home. This is because Bryan didn’t find out himself until just hours before the
press conference and hadn’t notified WWE at that point due to all the drama
regarding the burglary. Basically, the press conference took place before he
even had time to notify WWE officials.
