Daniel Bryan's status with the WWE is currently up in the air, as it's unknown when exactly he will make his in-ring return. It was originally believed that Bryan would return in June for a Buried Alive match with Kane at the WWE Money in the Bank PPV. However, WWE officials aren't sure he'll be ready by then.
The few WWE live events in June that have advertised Bryan in matches were probably set before his surgery. WWE will usually get the venues to remove the promotions but it's likely these dates could have slipped by. It's highly unlikely that Bryan will work any matches between now and Money in the Bank, even if he's cleared to do it. If he's not able to work the MITB PPV, he will work the match at WWE Battleground on July 20 in Tampa.
Stephanie McMahon told Bryan on RAW that he must give up the WWE World Heavyweight title on Sunday at Payback or Brie Bella will be fired. Brie recently hinted in an interview that she wanted to start a family. This led people to believe that she may take some time off at some point.
