Daniel Bryan Pulled From WWE Live Tour As Precaution

WWE has removed Daniel Bryan from the remainder of their current overseas tour as a precautionary measure.

We first noticed that Bryan had been removed from official show listings then received word that WWE had booked Bryan a flight back to the United States. We were told Bryan was being flown home due to an injury, however, WWE is not saying that.

WWE issued the following statement to Wrestling News World:

Daniel Bryan has been removed from the remainder of WWE's UK tour as a precautionary measure.

This comes after rumors that Bryan is not in good health, something I didn't want to believe when asked earlier on Wednesday. My argument was if Bryan wasn't healthy, he wouldn't be working matches he didn't have to work. Given Bryan's removal, it certainly offers validation to rumors he is not healthy and issues either persist with a neck injury or with the strength in his right arm.

As we also noted, Bryan's medical clearance was something that was given very abruptly earlier this year and he didn't even have it when he was announced as a participant for the 2015 Royal Rumble match.

For now, Bryan has been removed from the tour and is on his way back to the United States. He last worked on Tuesday in London, where he competed in a match taped for this week's episode of Smackdown. We have complete taping results online at this link.
