It was a long road for Daniel Bryan while coming back to in-ring competition in the WWE. It finally happened on last night’s episode of Smackdown which overshadowed each and everything. After a long time, this headliner was able to deliver an impactful episode heading into the Wrestlemania season.
The show ended on a sour note, though, where the Smackdown general manager was forced to leave the ring on a stretcher. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn delivered a massive assault to the leader of the YES Nation. Bryan was down and out after digesting an assault from the two big heels of the division.
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. #YesYesYes #WWE #Wrestling #AmericanDragon
He was stretchered out of the arena after the show to be reported to the local medical facility. More updates should be made available on this topic shortly.
Meanwhile, there was a six-man tag team action reserved for the fans in Dallas, Texas. They were able to go home on a happy note after the babyfaces won the contest. Check out the updates from wrestlingINC regarding the dark match,
