Let the yes chants begin because Daniel Bryan is going to wrestle again.

On Tuesday, WWE officials confirmed that the four-time world champion has been medically cleared to return to competition as part of the active roster.

Bryan was forced to retire back in 2016 after a series of concussions led to him experiencing seizures with the repeated head trauma ruling him out of further in ring competition. Since that time, Bryan has remained with WWE while serving as the on-camera “general manager” of WWE Smackdown Live while always holding out hope that he could wrestle again.

He finally received his clearance this week from several physicians including the WWE’s own doctor.

“Following more than two years of extensive evaluations, four-time World Champion Daniel Bryan has been medically cleared to return to in-ring competition by leading neurosurgeons, neurologists and concussion experts, including Dr. Robert Cantu, Dr. Javier Cárdenas and Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher,” WWE officials said in a statement.

“Bryan underwent a full review of his medical history and received comprehensive neurological and physical evaluations independent of WWE. He was cleared by each doctor as well as WWE’s Medical Director, Dr. Joseph Maroon.”

Bryan will likely address the news on Tuesday night during the live edition of Smackdown on the USA Network.

While nothing has been confirmed yet, Bryan gaining his clearance all but assures that he’ll be part of WrestleMania 34 taking place on April 8 in New Orleans. Bryan has already been involved in a storyline involving himself, Shane McMahon, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.

Bryan was long considered an underdog who made it big in WWE where he eventually earned a headlining spot at WrestleMania 30 where he won the world championship. Now the 36-year old superstar will finally get back to doing what he loves the most in the ring with WWE.
