After a couple of weeks absence from television, Daniel Bryan returned during the TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs pay-per-view with a new look and attacked Bray Wyatt.
Bryan, sporting his American Dragon look from his Ring of Honor days with a shaved head and shaved beard, appeared after Wyatt defeated The Miz on the show. When the lights went out, Wyatt thought that The Fiend was about to come out but instead, a hooded man stood in the ring and hit the running knee as soon as the lights came on.
Bryan then removed the hoodie covering his face as fans had already started chanting “Yes! Yes! Yes!” Before he could attack Wyatt more, lights went out again and he disappeared once the lights came back.
The former WWE champion then stared down the Universal title and encouraged fans with his “Yes!” chant.
Bryan was last seen getting dragged under the ring by The Fiend, ripping his hair in the process.
