WWE: Daniel Bryan pulled from Payback Pay-Per-View

Football News

The WWE have had a truly terrible time of things with injuries in the past few weeks and months.

Goldust has been out of action for a while now as well with a shoulder problem. The veteran performer had surgery on it that will keep him off TV for potentially the next six months, while Jey Uso - one half of the former tag champs- suffered an injury at WrestleMania that has put The Usos out of action as a whole for the past month or so.

And then there is Daniel Bryan, who was forced to relinquish a WWE Championship for the second time in less than a year after he handed back the Intercontinental title on Raw earlier this week.

No Bryan for Now

Things aren't getting better for Bryan, either. According to a report from PW Insider, via Wrestling Inc, the WWE have decided that Bryan won't even be appearing on TV, even in a non-wrestling role, for the foreseeable future.

"Daniel Bryan was scheduled to make an appearance at Sunday's WWE Payback pay-per-view, as well as RAW and SmackDown, but he's been pulled from the road so he can focus on physical therapy," the report stated.

"It's believed within WWE that Bryan won't return to TV until he's been cleared to wrestle or until they need him to promote his book and DVD, whichever comes first," they went on to say.

This is terrible news for WWE fans, who were hoping to see Bryan on television tapings as either a manager or just an on-screen personality. 

Bryan won the Intercontinental Championship after winning the seven man ladder match at WrestleMania XXXI. Bryan wasn't able to make his first title defense however as he was sent home from the company's European tour early due to health scares from the injury that originally put him out of action last year.

After the original injury, Bryan went for a different kind of rehab and it seemingly hasn't worked out. It took Bryan a lot longer than expected to get complete feeling back in his arm and to get back in to wrestling fitness. And now we're right back at square one again.
