Daniel Bryan confirms injury on WWE Raw; will have neck surgery this Thursday

Confirmed.

Unfortunately, the rumors floating around earlier today (May 12, 2014) were true and Daniel Bryan has, in fact, suffered a neck injury that will take him out of action for an undetermined amount of time.

He didn't reveal the extent of his injuries during his promo on tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw in Greenville, South Carolina, but did get emotional when saying he will have surgery this coming Thursday.

"I don't know when I'll be back but I do know I will be back.

"YES! YES! YES!"

No announcement was made regarding the status of the WWE world heavyweight championship, so he is not being stripped of the title, at least not yet. They also failed to acknowledge the Payback pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for June 1 in Chicago, which could mean prior reports of his possibly making a return at that show are still possible and WWE simply doesn't want to rule anything out just yet.

This leaves the heavy lifting to ongoing feuds between John Cena and Bray Wyatt, and Evolution and The Shield.
