- Daniel Bryan took part in an interview with SI.com in which he discussed the possibility of returning to the ring in WWE again, "I assume that if I don’t wrestle by WrestleMania, I probably won’t be wrestling with WWE at all," said Bryan. "That’s my assumption." He added, "It’s not a black and white answer," said Bryan. “There are a lot of issues with me getting cleared by WWE. They have a very strict protocol, which is a good thing, but the timeline of all that happening was not the best for me. It’s an interesting situation that will develop."

I debuted in @AmwayCenter 2 years ago at #RoyalRumble. No matter how long you’re in this business, emotions can always get the best of you & you put your foot in your mouth.— AJStyles.Org (@AJStylesOrg) January 3, 2018
NOW I’m walking into the same event as @WWE Champion against 2 guys I despise as much as they despise me.
