He's losing arm strength during rehab...
- Daniel Bryan's recovery from his neck surgery is not going as quickly as WWE hoped. According to The Wrestling Observer, Bryan's arm strength is actually getting weaker rather than stronger, which is worrying WWE officials. Bryan was sent back to Pittsburgh to see Dr. Joseph Maroon, who conducted his neck surgery.
Bryan will return for next week's Raw for another confrontation with Stephanie McMahon. While nothing is certain yet, the feeling is that with Bryan wanting to stay active and his mental toughness that he will compete at Money in the Bank even if he isn't as ready as he should be. The site notes that there is tremendous pressure on him, "whether direct or just implied," to be ready.
A second ladder match is being considered if the primary one becomes the title match, with the second one getting the traditional MITB title shot.
