Football News

WWE superstar Daniel Bryan appeared on Sports Illustrated Now to update fans on his recovery from his neck injury, and the former champion's comments will definitely be a cause for concern for his loyal WWE following.

Bryan has not featured in WWE since he defeated Kane at Extreme Rules, with the former three-time WWE champion having to relinquish his title due to injury shortly after that.

But for all those Bryan fans out there, the news coming from the former champ this week has been worrying to say the least. In an honest and frank interview with SI on Wednesday, Bryan revealed that he is struggling to regain strength in his right hand, and that as a result, it would be dangerous for him to return to the WWE at this present time.

Worrying situation 

"The funny thing is that I actually feel fine. There is nothing wrong with how I feel and the pain is fine. The problem is weakness," Daniel Bryan told Sports Illustrated on Wednesday.

"But given what we do and it's entertainment, people rely on us to be stable for each other. It's just dangerous right now for my opponent and dangerous for me to not have that strength."

The dangers of a quick return 

Even though the situation for Bryan is quite a concerning one, he maintains that the pain has subsided and that it's just a case of regaining strength. And to put this into perspective, Bryan explained that it's only the scripted nature of WWE that is preventing him from returning, adding that if he was an MMA fighter it wouldn't be an issue - only a weakness for others to exploit.

"Before my neck surgery and even after it, I have had a lot of weakness in my right hand. It's kind of funny because if I was an MMA fighter, the weakness wouldn't actually be that bad, it would just be an advantage for my opponent," Bryan continued. "I'm not in a lot of pain, we just can't figure out how to get the strength back."

Will he compete at WrestleMania 31?

WrestleMania 31 is not too far round the corner, with the big event just five months away. The next instalment of WWE's flagship pay-per-view is due to take place in San Francisco, and Bryan added that it would break his heart to miss such an event.

"Oh my god I hope I will return by then. I would be so disappointed if I wasn't back. I would be heartbroken if I couldn't wrestle in San Francisco next year."
