Daniel Bryan has spoken out today about his deepest injury fears following a substantial period of time on the WWE sidelines because of a neck injury.
Bryan suffered a compressed nerve injury last summer which forced him to have neck surgery and miss over six months of action. As a result of the injury, Bryan was forced to relinquish the WWE Heavyweight Championship in May, 2014.
In an honest and frank interview with The Times-Picayne, Bryan revealed that some doctors told him that he would never be able to wrestle again in the WWE. As a result of those comments, Bryan as well began to doubt whether he could comeback himself, with the superstar wrestler struggling to regain the necessary strength in his right arm.
Doctors told him bad news
"It was very frustrating. There were times when I actually did doubt whether I'd be able to come back," Bryan revealed. "There were several doctors who said as much. They thought that I wouldn't be able to come back."
But almost miraculously, Bryan's health improved in December as he enjoyed a month of rapid recovery. WWE fans were then treated to the news that he would be back in the ring this month before Royal Rumble.

The superstar wrestler admitted that his rapid recovery over the last month has taken him by surprise, with Bryan revealing that his previously injured right arm is now even stronger than his left.
"It was like, 'Wow. I'm actually getting better.' At the beginning of December, some parts of my right arm were even stronger than my left, which is pretty incredible given how long the nerve had been damaged."
Excited to be back
The popular wrestler now says he's ready to get back in the ring again and entertain his wrestling following, and he added that the time away from the WWE has allowed him to recharge his batteries.
"Functionally, I feel great. My movement is great. Overall, I feel good," added Bryan. "I didn't have any hesitation (in the ring), there was nothing that I did before that I can't do now. Not only that, mentally I've been recharged. I'm going to be better than ever."
