If there's one thing I've tried to clarify since WWE tied Daniel Bryan "cheated" on Brie Bella with his "physical therapist" in the program with Stephanie McMahon, it's that it is a way to get Bryan back involved in the angle. We went over that in Ask WNW here and here.
Bryan is currently out indefinitely due to nerve injuries that have prevented him from regaining full strength in his arm, which has prevented him from being cleared to compete. The company has released a new Daniel Bryan themed shirt with the words "Steph! Steph! Steph!" replacing "Yes! Yes! Yes!" You can view a photo below:
