Yesterday, March 20, 2018, WWE made a shocking announcement – Daniel Bryan received clearance to return to the ring. Last night’s SmackDown saw an emotional Bryan explain his road to this moment and how his wife Brie Bella encouraged him to fight for his dream.

Brie shared a heartfelt post on Instagram about his recovery:

Her post reads: “From the moment they told him No, he was on a mission to turn that no into a YES. I can’t wait for you all to hear his journey to this moment…his dedication, his mission and his passion. My daughter is lucky to have a Daddy who never gives up and who’s truly an amazing role model. I love you @bryanldanielson so happy that you’re back at the place you love, your home away from home…the squared circle.”

Brie is currently working on her own return to the ring and gives updates on her progress and what she’s learning as a new mom on her and Nikki’s YouTube channel. The most recent video showcases how the famous Women’s Royal Rumble photo came to be:

Nikki is also slowly returning back to the squared circle, she returned in a mix tag match with John Cena against Sonya Deville and Elias last weekend during WWE’s MSG show. The last time both women were in the ring was in January for the Royal Rumble.

No official word yet on when the Bellas will return. It’s being speculated Nikki will at least return after WrestleMania and Brie hopes to be ready by SummerSlam. Total Bellas is also set to return sometime this spring.
