Daniel Bryan was officially stripped of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the opening segment of this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. Because Bryan is not medically cleared to compete, a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion will be crowned in the Money in the Bank ladder match at the pay-per-view later this month.
Participants will qualify throughout the broadcast with Alberto Del Rio and Randy Orton already qualifying.
This was expected as I detailed the happenings surrounding Daniel Bryan since winning the title at Wrestlemania XXX leading up to this week’s Raw at this link.
As things currently stand, and as we reported here, WWE is preparing to be without Daniel Bryan until SummerSlam. There is no timetable available for his return at this time.
