Former WWE World Heavyweight champion Daniel Bryan announced on Raw last night that he will be entering the 2015 Royal Rumble 30-man over-the-top rope match.
Just hours before appearing on Raw, Bryan sent out a tweet that many thought he would be announcing his retirement. “Everyone comes to a crossroads in their life and I’ve come to mine. I look forward to telling you all about it tonight on #Raw,” he wrote.
But that wasn’t the case and the former champ will be lacing up his boots again for the first time in 8 months. Bryan last wrestled in May against Kane at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view, successfully defending the title he won at WrestleMania XXX.
Bryan struggled to get back in shape after he underwent neck surgery and there was a possibility of him undergoing another surgery but the second surgery was avoided.
