Daniel Bryan's neck surgery 'went great'

WWE.com

After revealing on Monday night's episode of Raw that he would be going under the knife to get surgery on a faulty neck, Daniel Bryan did exactly that earlier today (Thurs., May 15, 2014) in Pittsburgh. There was at least some concern on the part of those in charge at WWE that it could be much worse than anticipated and a segment was booked for next week's episode of Raw where the WWE world heavyweight title situation will be addressed.

The idea, apparently, was to wait until the results of his surgery came in to determine the best course of action.

Well, Brie Bella, Bryan's wife, sent out this tweet a short time ago:

WWE.com has more:

After being diagnosed with the nerve issue in his neck by WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann, Bryan underwent a procedure known as a cervical foraminotomy to decompress the nerve root. The surgery was performed by world-renowned neurosurgeon and sports medicine expert Dr. Joseph Maroon. WWE.com was not able to get an official timetable for Daniel Bryan's return, but can confirm that the WWE World Heavyweight Champion is out of surgery and doing well, with strength already returning to his hands.

We're happy to hear all went well and hope Bryan can return to action soon.
