Daniel Bryan gave an update on his health during the press conference where he was discussing the attempted burglary attempt on his home. Bryan talked about the crazy day he had. He did the Comic Con panel and then announced his book and then was told that he needed another surgery before flying home and seeing the burglary in progress.
Bryan said that the original surgery was for a compression of the ulnar nerve in his neck. That is between the C-6 and C-7 vertebrae. He also has bone spurs in his spinal cord. Doctors did not realize that the nerve was also compressed in his right elbow and he now has about half of the strength in his right arm than he does in his left. That doesn’t sound good at all.
There is no word on how long he will be out but he said the recent news would extend his recovery time.
