Daniel Bryan fans have been through a turbulent year since he was last the WWE Heavyweight Champion.
The superstar wrestler suffered a terrible neck injury in 2014 that forced him out of action for several months, but he is still feeling the affects of that injury even now.
It is said that Bryan suffered a setback before WWE's European Tour, something that eventually forced the wrestling company to pull the Intercontinental Champion from the tour.
Bryan followed up those missed events by pulling out of Extreme Rules, and reports today have now confirmed that the popular wrestler will not compete at the Payback pay-per-view.
Furthermore, according to F4WOnline, Bryan's next scheduled appearance in WWE is not until late June, meaning Daniel Bryan fans will have to wait a long while yet before seeing their main man back in action.
"Daniel Bryan has been pulled from all upcoming WWE advertising, both for TV Tapings and live events," NoDQ reported.
"As noted last week, it is expected that Bryan would be out at least a month following an injury in Dublin, Ireland during the last European tour. WWE made the call on Friday not to bring Bryan to the Extreme Rules pay-per-view event.
"According to F4WOnline, Bryan's first scheduled date back is the June 28th WWE live event in Reading, PA."
This is certainly not good news for Daniel Bryan fans who wanted to see the Yes! Movement is fully swing again, but at least it does bring some clarity to the situation.
More details surrounding WWE's decision to send Bryan home because of injury have also emerged in the last 24 hours, courtesy of WrestleZone.
"PWInsider.com reports WWE made the decision to send Daniel Bryan home this past Friday, and it was at that time he was pulled from the Extreme Rules PPV," WrestleZone reported.
