Brie Bella on social media:


      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

John Cena, notional brother-in-law, on social media has been mum on Daniel Bryan, but did post this within last hour:


      The Corvette ZR-1. The American Supercar famous on race tracks and envied on street corners. See it now on #AutoGeek on @BellaTwins YouTube channel. http://wwe.me/ITY89c

Alrighty then. Hmmm.


TMZ caught up with John Cena and he had kind words for Daniel Bryan’s in-ring return. You can see the video here. A snippet of Cena’s comments:

      “He worked his ass off to make that happen. It is what he was born to do … he’s back where he belongs.”

Ok, THAT’S more like it.
