That's because the hugely popular Daniel Bryan was cleared Tuesday to return to the pro-wrestling ring. Bryan told the crowd. Then, of course, he was serenaded by "YES!" chants from the fans.
Bryan, whose real name is Bryan Danielson, stayed active in the WWE by taking the position of general manager for "SmackDown", at least in an on-screen capacity. His last hurdle, which seemed like one that might never be cleared, was getting approved by the WWE's own doctors to return to the ring.
To roars of "Yes!" at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Bryan strode to the ring Tuesday to open "SmackDown Live".
The March 20 edition of WWE SmackDown was a solid show as a whole and did feature some very important moments, including news regarding the biggest news story to hit the WWE in a long time.
It was an emotional time for the WWE and its fans when Bryan had to retire two years ago.
Bryan then fired Owens and Zayn.
After thanking his wife, his doctors, and his fans for their support, Bryan was Powerbombed onto the mat in a later segment, proving once and for all that he was ready for his return to action.

Shinsuke beats the Rusev easily.
The professional wrestling world and WWE are whole again. He was a three-time world champion and most famously competed in both the opening and closing matches of WrestleMania XXX to win the WWE world heavyweight championship. The only question was if he'd ever wrestle for WWE again or wait out his contract and work for other promotions. There was a pretty horrific botch on the first attempt which forced the two to regroup for a few seconds, but the second attempt went much smoother. Eventually, Flair got to her feet and dealt with Carmella. Even if they came just to hear Bryan talk, they stayed for good programming.
Jimmy Uso goes head-to-head with one-half of The Bludgeon Brothers, as his brother Jey recovers from Harper & Rowan's all-out tag team slaughter at WWE Fastlane.
There isn't all sunshine around Bryan's in-ring return, which one would think will happen at WrestleMania, in the same city as the greatest moment of his career.
Also expected on the show is the more fighting between Jinder Mahal and Bobby Roode in the US Title scene.
