Reason WWE Announced Daniel Bryan’s Return on Tuesday Afternoon

— As noted before, it was very likely Vince McMahon who moved up the date for Dr. Maroon to re-evaluate Daniel Bryan, forcing Bryan to fly in from Abu Dhabi to make the appointment. After the meeting concluded and Maroon cleared Bryan, he was said to have “tears in his eyes” and word began spreading backstage at Raw that he was likely returning.

— When things were finalized and WWE made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon, it was because the company wanted to capitalize on the news and generate a big rating for Smackdown. It apparently had nothing to do with WWE wanting to be the first to break the news or at least get it out before it spread on the internet.
