The WWE has pulled Daniel Bryan from a number of media appearances this week. Before any strange WWE rumors start circulating, Wrestle View reported on Oct. 30 that the WWE pulled him to sell the injury storyline from “WWE Monday Night Raw.”
On the show, Bryan attacked Shawn Michaels for betraying him at “Hell in a Cell” and then went to the back for an interview. Before the interview could start, The Wyatt Family attacked him and beat him so severely that he had to take a trip to the hospital.
Later in the show, The Wyatt Family also attacked CM Punk.
The WWE has pulled Bryan from his media appearances in order to sell the severity of the beating as they begin this new storyline. This is part of the WWE’s rebooting most of the WWE storylines on “WWE Monday Night Raw” this week. They have a new WWE champion in Randy Orton, with Big Show coming after him, and a new World champion in John Cena with Damien Sandow moving into the main event picture. CM Punk’s feud with Paul Heyman was also prematurely ended two months early.
Meanwhile, Daniel Bryan has been pushed down the ranks and into a feud with The Wyatt Family, alongside CM Punk from the look of it.
