Daniel Bryan is currently on the long road to recovery after undergoing surgery recently on a shoulder injury the WWE superstar picked up not long after claiming the Heavyweight Championship belt at WrestleMania XXX.
The WWE is worried however that the rehabilitation process of one of their biggest names is not going according to plan - putting his participation in a June return event in doubt.
As reported by The Wrestling Insider, Bryan's right arm is responding to treatment slower than expected with one individual claiming to be close to the WWE star noting that Bryan is actually losing strength in the arm during the process of recovery.
The WWE hierarchy will surely be hoping that Bryan can return to his enigmatic best when he does once again take to the ring, and with the wrestler listed on upcoming WWE events this summer they were surely banking on Bryan making a full recovery.
News that the medical side of things is not going according to plan in reality will be a worry therefore for the likes of Vince McMahon.
Stephanie McMahon meanwhile has already made it clear that Bryan will have to vacate his title if he cannot perform at the upcoming Money in the Bank pay-per-view June 29. If Bryan's rehabilitation does not dramatically improve in the near future then it certainly looks like the WWE will be searching for a new champion - and some new story lines to entertain fans while the Yes! Movement is put on extended hold.
