– Brie Bella posted the following on Instagram this afternoon to celebrate her husband being cleared to wrestle for WWE again:
From the moment they told him No, he was on a mission to turn that no into a YES. I can’t wait for you all to hear his journey to this moment…his dedication, his mission and his passion. My daughter is lucky to have a Daddy who never gives up and who’s truly an amazing role model. I love you @bryanldanielson so happy that you’re back at the place you love, your home away from home…the squared circle. #YesYesYes #WWE #Wrestling #AmericanDragon
