As noted, Daniel Bryan was cleared to return from a concussion on Monday afternoon. WWE made sure not to put him in a position where he would have to take bumps on last night's show so he could have another week to rest up before the Royal Rumble singles match against Bray Wyatt.
Many fans have been wondering if Bryan will have a spot in the 30-man Royal Rumble main event. As of Monday afternoon, Bryan was not going to be in the match. His only appearance at the Rumble is scheduled to be the match against Wyatt.
Now, I don't think Bryan has to win the rumble, but I think it'd be foolish to not have him in it at all. He's one of the few people who have an actual shot at winning so taking him out makes the match more predictable with only about 3 other guys (Punk, Batista, Reigns) who could actually win. He's the most over guy in the company and would bring a ton of excitement to the match. If he's cleared to compete, I see no reason he shouldn't be involved in the rumble match.
