– As noted, tonight’s WWE SmackDown saw General Manager Daniel Bryan get physical in the ring for the first time since 2015 as he’s been cleared to return to action for WWE. Bryan fired Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens for last week’s attack on Shane McMahon but they then beat him down. Bryan fought back and had momentum going at one point but the show ended with Bryan being taken away on a stretcher. This should lead to Shane and Bryan vs. Owens and Sami at WrestleMania 34.
Shane tweeted the following after the attack to Bryan:
“On a night that should have been one of @WWEDanielBryan’s finest…Sami & KO proved they are vile, spineless cowards. Neither of them belong in @WWE and #SDLive…I just hope this didn’t set back Daniel’s in-ring return even further.”
