Daniel Bryan injury announcement on WWE Raw is real
On Monday Night Raw, Daniel Bryan cut a promo where he stated that he would have a surgery on his neck on Thursday night and it would possibly be the end of his career in the business.
WWE is known for using injury storylines to make things interesting but it seems the injury promo was a legitimate way of writing out Daniel Bryan so that he could get his neck surgery done.
Wrestle View were informed by reliable sources that the World Champion’s has genuinely suffered a neck injury before Raw kicked off.
The initial part of the promo saw Bryan appreciate the fans who have been responsible for making his dreams come true. He continued to talk about how the attack from Kane resulted in him “paying the price.” A bunch of fans were chanting ‘No’ to voice their nonsupport for the World Champion but Bryan joked in response saying that he now knows how John Cena feels.
But then he revealed that he had to undergo surgery on his neck this Thursday. He also said that there is a chance that it could be the end of his career.
However, Bryan promised his fans at the end of the promo that he would be back. When he asked the fans if they want him to return the whole arena replied with ‘Yes’ chants.
Later in the show, Stephanie McMahon came out and called Daniel Bryan a wrestler with a big heart but a body that will never let allow him to be an A+ superstar. She called out Daniel Bryan and was about to strip him off his titles. But Kane’s music hit and he dragged an unconscious Bryan out which made the injury part look more like an angle.
But basically, the promo was a shoot interview where everything he said regarding the neck injury was the real deal. There is no word on when his injury occurred but it is believed that it happened at last week’s TV tapings as there were no WWE live events this past weekend.
It remains to be seen how WWE responds to the situation as they are taking a ‘wait and see’ to determine Bryan’s situation and whether he will be available for the Payback pay-per-view or not.
