WWE announced on this week’s episode of Main Event that an announcement concerning the status of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will be made on next week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in London, England.
As I discussed in the latest WNW Premium Mailbag, the company is waiting until after Daniel Bryan, the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion, has neck surgery before determining the future of the title.
The belief is if Bryan isn’t going to be out a considerable amount of time, he’ll keep the title. If he’s out an extended period of time, a plan will be put in place to crown a new champion. Obviously if that’s the route WWE takes, the company could promote a unification bout when Bryan returns.
