The latest on Daniel Bryan is that his right arm has still not regained strength and recent discussion backstage within WWE was that he may need to get Tommy John surgery to reconstruct his ulnar ligament, a surgery that many major league baseball players end up having to get. Bryan continues to have issues in both his neck and elbow. That surgery would keep him out of action for a full year. It would appear any plans WWE has had for Bryan regarding the Royal Rumble or WrestleMania are now off the table.
