You can count The Rock as one of the millions and millions of people worldwide who were not happy with how the Royal Rumble went down. He reportedly is upset with how the Daniel Bryan elimination went down. WWE upset a lot of the fans in the arena by doing that, which put a lot more pressure on the Great One to pull them back in at the end for Roman Reigns. Management underestimated the potential backlash.

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.

The move is obviously being done to get rid of the expected ring rust that he has accrued since being on the sidelines for so long. He might still make appearances on Monday Night Raw, however.
