WWE - Daniel Bryan Suffered A Concussion Monday Night

I am able to confirm through a WWE spokesman that Daniel Bryan suffered a concussion on Monday night.

The injury apparently happened during the steel cage tag match main event on this week's episode of Raw. The bout saw Bryan team with Bray Wyatt to oppose The Usos in a re-match from earlier in the show.

He went on to have one of the best segments in Raw history after turning on Bray Wyatt.

So far, neither dot com nor Bryan have acknowledged the injury. Bryan did post a storyline-driven Tweet [about the segment] that you can read at this link.

    so is he done? or do you think he’ll be fine? horrible timing.

  • MannyRodz

    Wow sucks for Bryan, especially after last night. But imagine the pop he gets if he’s off TV for a month. It will be awesome if that’s the case

    They could probably still use Bryan causing problems for the Wyatts in ways that wouldn’t really require much physical conflict if he concussion isn’t a serious grade one.

  • Patrick

    he looked fine I’m suprised he did suffer a concussion. He needs to also stop doing that flying headbutt off the corner turnbuckle.

    • BIG M

      Yeah your right about the headbutt.
      Look at all the health problems that guys who used the move like Dynamite Kid and Harley Race have these days.
      Think Harley’s even gone on record wishing he never invented it because he thinks it causes irreversible back trauma and even brain damage like the kind they discoverd Chris Benoit had after his autopsy.
      WWE should defenitly put it on the baned move list.

      • Patrick

        your right Harley Race has gone on record saying he wished he never invented the headbutt move.

  • The Breaker

    Bry got a concussion and neither Swagger nor Ryback were in the cage when it happened? How is this possible? 😛

    In all seriousness though, I wish him a quick recovery and no lasting effects. The Royal Rumble PPV is less than two weeks away so hopefully they can give him that time off (out of the ring, at least) and make sure he’s 100 percent. Concussions seem to be going around an awful lot these days. Is there anything WWE can do to further prevent this from happening? I can’t think of anything that wouldn’t hamper the athletes’ ability to put on the best possible match.

  • Padres4life

    well the Smackdown tapings have Bray coming out saying that Bryan will burn for what he did….and the Bellas were announcing one of the matches…so if it was serious, Brie would have been gone and they wouldn’t have had Bray go out and cut a promo talking about him getting his revenge.

    Richard your link about Bryans tweets keep coming up as the last Premium Mailbag

    Hopefully not too serious. First Ziggy and now D-Bry this sucks. Maybe you can replace Bryan with Kane v Bray if Bryan cant go at Rumble and hold him off until EC

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      I don’t think it was too serious, I mean he shook it off pretty quick. But with a concussion you can never know

      • BlazeKing

        Chris Nowinski shook off his concussions thinking that they weren’t serious until he started seeing fading colors and such. It’s the fear of losing your spot that makes wrestlers do that.

  • JR Texx (Jamie)

    You could see when it happened, it looked pretty rough.

    Not a good time for that to be happening, but there really never is a good time for them either.
