Daniel Bryan did not walk out of WrestleMania 35 as WWE Champion after his match against Kofi Kingston. He fought hard against Kingston to ensure that KofiMania was running wild and they had the best match on the card in a lot of people’s opinion. However, Bryan was apparently injured during that contest.
The New Daniel Bryan was flown home following WrestleMania and he was not used this week during the Superstar Shake-Up. PW Insider reports that there is more to his absence than WWE simply not having anything for him to do.
Bryan is reportedly dealing with an injury and internally those in the know are keeping the nature of his injury “closely guarded.” Therefore, there might not be any word on his injury status until they make an official announcement.
Hopefully, Daniel Bryan isn’t suffering from a repeat of the concussion issues that cost him two years of his career. Because another flare up in that regard could very well cost him the remainder of his in-ring career.
