Daniel Bryan may now be requiring shoulder surgery. A full exam revealed that he also has shoulder issues along with different neck issues that were not known about before. Right now because of the uncertainty of everything as to whether he’ll need surgery and what surgery it will be, he’s out of the company plans and there is no estimate on when he’ll be returning. The plan seemed to be Roman Reigns ascending up the ladder as the top guy at WrestleMania 31 whether or not Bryan was hurt or not. If Bryan was still champion then the build for Reigns would have been slower. The idea was for Reigns to work with Randy Orton and maybe a big pay-per-view match with Triple H.
