Superstars react to Daniel Bryan in-ring return announcement
It was around 3 p.m. eastern time today that every member of the WWE Universe let out a collective, "Yes!"
That's when it was revealed that four-time World Champion Daniel Bryan had been medically cleared for an in-ring return.
Saying goodbye to the ring was one of the hardest moments of my life. But thanks to the amazing people supporting me, I was able to keep fighting for my dream. This moment feels surreal and I'm glad to be able to talk to you all at the beginning of #SDLive tonight.— Daniel Bryan (@WWEDanielBryan) March 20, 2018
The stunning announcement inspired reactions from Bryan's peers, colleagues and even a few old enemies.
I couldn’t be happier for Daniel. Being away for two years must have felt like an eternity...but today, he’s back and where he belongs. https://t.co/HNtSw1RwKI— AJStyles.Org (@AJStylesOrg) March 20, 2018

This may be a first in all of professional sports. So stoked for Bryan and for what it could mean for head trauma research and rehabilitation in contact athletics. https://t.co/g3nnD11wVM— Seth Rollins (@WWERollins) March 20, 2018
