I feel so sorry for Daniel Bryan.
The wrestler won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXX, was married a few days later and then it all seemed to go downhill from there.
His father passed away not long after returning from his honeymoon then - somewhere along the line - he ended up injuring his neck. This injury resulted in surgery which was supposed to have kept him out of the ring for just a few weeks.
The company made a decision to keep the title on him as they expected him back in time for the Money in the Bank pay-per-view at the end of the month. However, WWE found out he wasn't healing as fast as anticipated so they had to make the decision to force the title to be vacated.
It's dreadful misfortune, but at least he's not going to be in a position to force himself back before he's ready.
I don't know what this means for his rumoured match against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam. I hope it's still going to happen somewhere down the road. The match-up intrigues me.
