As noted, SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan was finally medically cleared to return to the ring by WWE this week.
The New Day’s Kofi Kingston spoke with the folks at Sports Illustrated about the big news during a recent interview.
“When it comes to wrestling, Daniel Bryan is just so passionate about being here,” Kingston said. “This is great news.”
Kingston continued, “Him being around as the GM and backstage, I know he loved that, but you can just see it in his eyes and you can feel how he wants to be in the ring. The fact that he can now safely compete is awesome for him. I’m really, really happy for him.”
