Daniel Bryan's Royal Rumble Status, Why Dolph Ziggler Was Sent To Pittsburgh For Evaluation

There continues to be a lot of speculation regarding Daniel Bryan's status for next week's Royal Rumble pay-per-view after suffering a concussion on last week's episode of Monday Night Raw.

As we reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, Bryan hasn't worked since Raw last week as a result of the injury. His clearance hinges on passing an ImPACT concussion test and being asymptomatic. All creative plans for Bryan will be on hold until those two things happen.

Dolph Ziggler, who is also out with a concussion, saw his ImPACT concussion test results within normal limits, however, he wasn't even cleared for light cardio because he was still experiencing concussion symptoms. Ziggler saw Dr. Mark Lovell at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, a standard procedure for a worker that has suffered a second concussion within an annual year.
