SmackDown LIVE preview, March 20, 2018: Daniel Bryan to kick off SmackDown LIVE following news that he has been cleared to compete
Following the monumental announcement that four-time World Champion Daniel Bryan has been medically cleared to return to in-ring competition, SmackDown LIVE’s General Manager will kick off the blue brand. Find out what he has to say tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!

Following the monumental announcement that four-time World Champion Daniel Bryan has been medically cleared to return to in-ring competition, SmackDown LIVE’s General Manager will kick off the blue brand.
What will the future hold for WWE’s “Yes!” Man? Could we see a WrestleMania return? How will this affect his role as GM? Who will he look to face first? Find out as The Road to WrestleMania continues on SmackDown LIVE, tonight at 8/7 C.

Will Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn face any repercussions from Daniel Bryan for their attack on Shane McMahon?
To say the least, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn may have gone too far last week on SmackDown LIVE. After Shane McMahon announced he would be taking an indefinite leave of absence from his position as SmackDown LIVE Commissioner, KO and Zayn brutalized McMahon, leaving him with several injuries.

Daniel Bryan returns to SmackDown LIVE tonight as the sole person in charge of Team Blue. How will he respond to Owens & Zayn after their unbelievable attack? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!

Is Jinder Mahal winning the United States Title a foregone conclusion?
The United States Championship picture heading into WrestleMania is murky following last week’s SmackDown LIVE. Jinder Mahal continued to claim he is the uncrowned champion and interrupted Bobby Roode when he attempted to use his rematch clause to challenge Randy Orton at WrestleMania, then defeated The Glorious One before eating an RKO from the titleholder.

As WrestleMania draws closer, will one Superstar emerge as the clear challenger for WWE’s Apex Predator?

How will the SmackDown Women’s Division change after the arrival of Asuka?
The dynamic of the Women’s division on SmackDown LIVE immediately changed when Asuka declared she’d be challenging SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania.

With the specter of The Empress of Tomorrow hanging over them, how will the women of Team Blue react? Carmella still holds the Money in the Bank contract; could she rush to cash in before The Show of Shows? And with the WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal on the horizon, surely the women of the blue brand will be out to make an impression just before stepping onto The Grandest Stage of Them All.

Will The Bludgeon Brothers’ punishment continue?
At WWE Fastlane, Harper & Rowan demolished The New Day and SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos during a thrilling title bout. Two days later on SmackDown LIVE, Big E & Jimmy Uso, the only two members of their respective teams cleared for competition, attempted to take out The Bludgeon Brothers but came up short.

Now that the mallet-wielding madmen are on the loose, will The New Day, The Usos or anyone else be able to stop their path of destruction?

Will AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura have to watch each other’s back ahead of WrestleMania?
Though he emerged from WWE Fastlane’s wild Six-Pack Challenge with his WWE Championship, AJ Styles found out quickly that The Road to WrestleMania promises to be challenging.

After enduring a two-on-one beating at the hands of Rusev & Aiden English, Styles was saved by an unlikely Superstar: Shinsuke Nakamura, his WrestleMania opponent. With their WWE Championship dream match just three weeks away, will the two have to watch each other’s backs to ensure that their dream match becomes a reality?

It always cracks me up when WWE tries to sell us on the fact that they'd ever let talent show up late and after the show has already started. Yeah, they'll be here later. OK.

Timing let’s me know it’s has to have been at least a couple days
I wonder how long bryan has actually been cleared for
I think WWE has known for sometime that Daniel Bryan would be cleared to wrestle, but he's probably only actually been clearly for a few days. I think the timing of this is also to help SmackDown Live viewership.

I'm glad Daniel Bryan is thanking the WWE doctors and not acting entitled and bitter about how long it took.

Good on him for looking forward and backward.
