Recently, Daniel Bryan was medically cleared to compete in matches. Hence, it is likely that WWE will allow him to compete in this match who might turn out to be the biggest attraction of the night in Abu Dhabi. In a recent promotional activity for the same show, the Smackdown general manager alluded to participate in this match.
While speaking of the match, he stated that eventually, this match would turn out to be historically more significant than WrestleMania. He’s quite ready to perform in this once-in-a-lifetime showdown hosted by the company. Recently, WWE officially handed over the spot for him in this match.

“Meltzer also weighed in on Bryan being one of the favourites to win the Royal Rumble Match which took place in January of this year. Meltzer noted that the betting odds led to rumours of WWE clearing Bryan to make his in-ring return. However, there is no truth to said rumours as they had nothing to do with people being aware of him wrestling again.”
