It's not clear at this point in time when Daniel Bryan will be returning to Friday Night SmackDown, but it was recently reported that WWE is now planning for Bryan and Roman Reigns to feud over the Universal Championship. Daniel Bryan's new haircut can be seen in the video below. Brie Bella then showed the new look of his husband to the fans and asked for feedback.
WWE waited until the day of the SmackDown show to announce more things for the episode.

The episode saw Jey Uso turn heel and join hands with the WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns. Under the order of The Tribal Chief, he brutally attacked Bryan and splashed him through the announcers' table, causing Bryan sustaining multiple injuries (kayfabe).
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that all of the key players were under the impression before RAW went live on Monday that Orton was still planning to wrestle Reigns at Survivor Series.
