Since the injury that Daniel Bryan is suffering from is considered a pretty serious thing, WWE is taking a very patient approach to the situation.

On Monday Night Raw, WWE announced that Daniel Bryan was going to be making an appearance at the Elimination Chamber kickoff show. He will be interviewed by the Miz.

Some more bad news regarding Daniel Bryan. WWE has pulled his name from all upcoming live events and television taping. That is not a good sign because it means that the former world heavyweight champion will not be making a return anytime soon. Initially, there were rumors that he was going to be on the shelf for approximately a month. Now, it appears that he is going to need much more time to recover than that.

It has been less than a week since Sheamus made his return to WWE, and there is already a little bit of backstage heat towards him. While working a match against Daniel Bryan at the Smackdown taping, many observed that he was being a bit reckless in the ring. He is being accused of not protecting his opponent enough during the match. Some are excusing him by stating that he is still shaking off the ring rust from his time off.

One of the ideas floating around backstage in WWE right now is to have Sheamus making his much anticipated and much promoted return during the Intercontinental Championship ladder match at Wrestlemania. He would initially do so as a baby face before getting the fans to turn on him by costing Daniel Bryan the match. A title feud between the two would then take place for the next month or so.

Around this time of year, upper level performers start being paired with one another for Wrestlemania. While plans change on a daily basis, management currently has Sheamus, who is expected to make his return to television from an injury any moment now, and Daniel Bryan penciled in for a rematch at the biggest pay per view of the year. The former would have to make a heel turn in order for the feud to work out properly.

Patience is not a virtue for everyone. Initially, the plan was to save the televised in ring return for Daniel Bryan at the Royal Rumble because that would have the most impact on fans. He would work non televised live events prior to that to prepare for the big pay per view. WWE, however, has changed their minds and decided to pull the trigger early. Bryan will now be making his return on an episode of Smackdown, which is now moving to Thursday.
