REPORT: Concern that Daniel Bryan may never wrestle again; arm not gaining strength


As noted in previous reports, Daniel Bryan underwent minimally invasive neck surgery. The surgery was expected to keep him out of the ring for a short time (less than two months). As noted before Bryan has had issues regaining strength in his right arm and there was talk that he might need another surgery.

The latest news, according to a report on, is that Bryan is not seeing improvement on his arm. The talk backstage at Raw was that Bryan may be getting “Tommy John surgery.” According to WebMD, during Tommy John surgery, a surgeon replaces the injured UCL with a tendon taken from somewhere else in the patient’s body. UCL is short for ulnar collateral ligament.

The recovery time for that type of surgery is 6 to 12 months. Even worse, it is not known if he will wrestle again. The report notes that this type of injury can prevent him from being cleared to wrestle. The WWE creative team is now working on the assumption that he will not be back any time soon and is not being factored into creative plans.
