Top 3 Predictions for a Surprise Return/Debut in the 2017 Royal Rumble Match

1. Daniel Bryan

Call me crazy but I don’t think Daniel Bryan is done wrestling in the WWE. Remember February of 2016, Bryan had a very emotional retirement speech in Seattle, Washington due to concussions. Daniel was able to be cleared by every doctor except for a WWE doctor and Daniel Bryan needed the approval of the WWE doctor in order to get back in the ring.

Once the brand split happened , Shane McMahon announced Daniel Bryan as the new SmackDown Live General Manager. Talking Smack was created and aired on the WWE Network as a post show recap. The Miz blew up on Daniel Bryan in August of 2016 on a episode of Talking Smack.

The Miz and Daniel Bryan have hated each other ever since NXT Season 1 when Daniel Bryan was the rookie and The Miz was his pro. This was not the only occurance The Miz and Daniel Bryan had an issue on Talking Smack. On January 3, 2017 it happened once again.

The Miz has gone to the extent of mocking Daniel Bryan every single time he wrestles. There is a possibility that Daniel Bryan may be secretly cleared by a WWE doctor and is able to return back to action. If this is the case I think your 30th entrant of the 2017 Royal Rumble would be Daniel Bryan and San Antonio would come unglued!

If that is not the case and Daniel Bryan does not return back at the Rumble I think he returns by WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans (where Daniel Bryan won the WWE World Championship) .
