There is very little known right now about Daniel Bryan’s situation other than what was said on Raw and what has already been reported online. For those that don’t know, he is losing strength in his right arm since his surgery. Bryan has been pulled from the Madison Square Garden house show on July 12th. He was originally scheduled to face Triple H in a street fight for the WWE title. Ric Flair has been added to that show.
The tentative plans still are for Brock Lesnar to face Daniel Bryan at SummerSlam in August in Los Angeles but that may not mean anything because last week the plans were still for him to wrestle at the Money In The Bank show and that is obviously not happening. Since no one has given an estimate for a return date it has caused a lot of speculation as to what that means for Bryan.
Bryan was advertised for this past Monday’s Raw but then they changed their minds and decided not to use him on the show. It was never a sure thing that he would have been ready for Money In The Bank so the company is at fault for not planning ahead instead of assuming that he’d be ready in time. The one thing that is certain is that they do know who will be the winner of the Money In The Bank title match and there are plans set for the new champion going forward. There is no word on who that person is.
