The WWE has had a truly awful time with injuries over the past year or so, losing many of its top stars for significant periods of time.
Ex-WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins will be out for up to nine months after tearing knee ligaments, while another former Champion - Daniel Bryan - has been on the sidelines for the best part of 2015.
The leader of the YES Movement hasn't been seen in a WWE ring for months and his future is far from certain, and Bryan has been speaking about his forced time off.

Letting Fans Down
During an interview with Tamanna Naseer of The Statesman, Bryan talked about being sidelined with an injury and how he feel like he's letting the fans down.
“I think the frustrating part for me with the injuries is feeling like I’ve almost let the fans down because they’re the ones who pushed me to the super high level,” Bryan said, while on a promotional tour in India last week.
The fan favorite went on to add that because the fans pushed him into the main event, he feels bad that he has been out for so long.
"They were the ones who, without them, I would’ve never gotten here. They were the ones who wanted it so bad, so it’s almost like, I feel like I let them down.”
In all honesty, Bryan has let absolutely no-one down. It is the WWE and their doctors who are holding him back from making a return - due to concussion worries.
Absence only makes the heart grow fonder, and when Bryan does return he will get one of the biggest crowd reactions in years.
