Daniel Bryan Still Without Return Timetable, Could Require More Surgery

Shares 0

For those that missed our Money in the Bank Kickoff coverage, Daniel Bryan announced he doesn't know when he'll be cleared to return to the ring. He confirmed what we've been reporting in that the strength in his arm has not returned. Bryan said they're talking about doing another surgery but he promised to be back. You can read our complete recap at this link.

Bryan underwent his first surgery on May 15, 2014 under Dr. Joseph Maroon. The procedure performed was a cervical foraminotomy to decompress the nerve root. We went into more detail about what it entailed at this link.

I covered all of the events following Bryan's title win at Wrestlemania XXX leading up to him being stripped of the title at this link.

Below is a photo I Tweeted from the Money in the Bank Kickoff:

      just imagine when he comes back, i hope its a when and not a IF

      • Padres4life

        i think it’ll be a surprise return out of nowhere….i don’t think he;ll retire.

          He’s already said he’s going to be back, I wouldn’t be surprised if its Summerslam when he comes back.

    I hate to be that guy, but this is why CM Punk always complained about having to work sore. A nagging injury turns into a career-threatening one. I’d like to say “Punk wins again”, but nobody wins when somebody’s ability to do the thing they love is taken from them.

      cm.punk left because he was beat up and was tired of part timers coming in stealing the big pay days. I do see him coming back, i feel like he has all the control, if DB is out for 6-12 months that means wwe need Punk even more

      • Padres4life

        it won’t be a year….he’ll be back at least by October i’d say.

        My comment had nothing to do with Punk’s return….
