Exclusive: Daniel Bryan Will NOT Be Medically Cleared For Money In The Bank

SEScoops.com has learned that WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan will NOT be medically cleared to compete at the upcoming Money in the Bank pay-per-view, which takes place on Sunday, June 29th from the TD Garden in Boston, MA.

Last week, there was still hope that Bryan would be medically cleared for Money in the Bank. However, we just heard exclusively from a source backstage at RAW from the Target Center in Minneapolis that Bryan got the news from his doctors that he definitely will NOT be able to wrestle this month.

As such, Bryan will be forced to surrender the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and a new champion will be crowned at the pay-per-view.

An announcement could be made as soon as tonight’s RAW. WWE has already determined who the next champion will be.

      If the dirtsheets are reporting this — than it’s 100% a lock he will be at MITB

      The most inaccurate reporting / lies gets the most disrespect.

        this is exclusive sescoops news
        they correctly reported daniel bryans concussion
        and reported his neck injury just a few hours before raw started

      • Kris Mystery

        But yet you come here?

    • Ouch

      This is a good thing! Its been only Orton and Bryan for a YEAR. Time for a new champion, a new storyline.

      I’d genuinely prefer Cena/Triple H to Orton or Bryan at the moment.

      Lets hope for someone interesting and new. I hope the shock/surprise us.

      • FlawlessRKO

        Cesaro or Rollins

        • G.I.R.L.

          Too soon.

          • FlawlessRKO

            Then who? An established wrestler?

  • evil_INDEED


    • AttitudeEfan

      I said that when he came out last week..once his music hit I already knew what it was lol

  • Tony Slicer

    so much 30 days and so much all crap he went threw hell this might be it for his wrestling carrier if do come back maybe long time get title match

  • RicFlair

    Give it to Rollins, since hes getting nuclear heat right now, then have him feud with Reigns. This will make two main event stars right away

    • Gimmick Bag

      or Maybe Reigns wins the MITB and cashes it in on Rollins. then Reigns vs HHH.I would rather have Ceasero win the MITB though

      • QuiteFrankly2k

        There will be no MITB, the ladder match will be for the championship

        • A Realist

          The plan is to have two. One for the MITB, the other for the championship.

          • Codebeard

            While that would make sense, it’s only a fan rumor that that’s that’s what they’re going to do. As of now there’s only one confirmed ladder match, and that’s either for the contract or the belt pending Bryan’s health.

          • QuiteFrankly2k

            This has not been confirmed anywhere as of now.

        • Donny Octave

          2 MITB matches is what i’ve heard, one for the title, the other for the briefcase.

      • raVen

        I would rather see it vice versa-Reigns gets the title somehow and Rollisn wins the briefcase.

    • captaindaddy72

      I love your idea, wwe needs new main eventers and Seth and roman are great choices

    • NateGrey

      What a terrible idea. Let them fight for the IC Title or US Title. They are no way ready for one on ones for the big one.

      • Donny Octave

        How are they going to become ready, if they can’t get a shot?

      • Leather Face

        Thanks for the insight. You must be a writer for the wwe. Maybe it was also your lame brain idea to make Sheamus the champ immediately a few years ago or putting a belt on Khali. You probably also think that the Miz deserves the belt or better yet, Batista. Your opinions are irrelevant, sir.

        • NateGrey

          lol thats exactly what you are saying to do. Put World Titles on inexperienced wrestlers rather than have them move up like a Rock or Austin. Thanks for your reply it was even more worthless than you think it was. Idiot.

          • IAmAPerson

            Been here for about 19 months. Never had a bad match (by all but the most cynic aholes definition). Genuinely loved for their talent and wrestling abilities.


          • NateGrey

            Yes because we all know length of time really factors in whether a superstar is a top level performer. Look at the atrocious promo Rollins cut last night. He is still green. Then we have IWC trying to book them to carry main events. Last thing I am going to say is I am glad that Vince is there to prevent these type of terrible booking decisions to come to fruition.

          • RicFlair

            They have been consistently booked in the main event for the past year, and have been getting great crowd reactions every time they’re on raw, and you tell me that they are still inexperienced? Please, I rather see Rollins hold the belt, then see Cena, Orton, or Kane hold it. And were we watching the same promo last night? Rollins cut a great promo, and is easily the top heel right now

          • NateGrey

            They’ve been booked in main events as a team, yes. Do you really want to see the buyrate of a main event of Rollins vs Reigns for the Championship? Its like the IWC are determined to create another Miz or Sheamus out of this situation.

  • 10YearOldBoy

    Honestly idk who might win but I’ll definitely be watching.

  • Y2J

    Well boys & girls expect to see Cena in that MITB match now. I’ll be shocked if he’s not

    • Donny Octave

      Seeing as he doesn’t have a feud right now, i can agree with this.

  • Dixie Carter

    knowing WWE, I’m shocked. They usually have talent wrestle with smashed eyes and broken shoulders

    • Donny Octave

      At least they don’t have to wrestle without a proper paycheck.

  • TheOwl

    Give it to Kane…He has held only 3 World Titles in his career and when Bryan returns, he will continue his feud with Kane. KANE DESERVES IT ! Bottom Line.

    • Y2J

      Not the worse idea I’ve heard, I would make him a transitional champion though & let one of the rising stars take it off him.

    • Donny Octave

      People would say Kane is stale and boring now, but to be honest, he does deserve at least one more run with the belt, even if he’s only a transitional champion for when D Bry returns.

  • idk

    They’d probably give the title to Orton as giving the title to someone else would be, i don’t know, wrong.

  • QuiteFrankly2k

    Chris Jericho (If he returns) or Rollins would be my best bets on who should take the title.

    • A.J

      Thank you!! finally somebody says it! It would be great if he’d return, as much as I want to see the rest of the Kane and Bryan feud, I’ve been wanting to see Jericho and Bryan feud forever!! I hope he returns and bryan comes back and they either fight at Battleground or Summerslam!

  • MajorHeel

    Have one mitb for the title and another for the contract.

    • Jay Pletz

      that’s what i assumed they would do. i think that’d be too good of an idea though…

  • Dajoosesloos

    I don’t care if cena is in the match but he better not win. I could see him being at the top of the ladder the lights go out and the Wyatt’s hit the ring. In the process of them destroying cena cesaro grabs the belts setting up cesaro vs. Brock at summerslam

  • Reality

    A new champ that is not named Cena/Orton/Triple H is gonna feel great. But I’m sure they’ll want it to end on Cena or Wyatt. One of the two potential opponents not named Kane for Bryan when he returns.

  • Donkey Kong

    Oh wait this isn’t a dream…. :(

  • Buzzard Follower

    Sucks for bryan but let the speculation begin who will be the next wwe whc

  • DoubleD

    The winner of the contract ladder match should cash in on the winner of the ladder match for the title on the same night before the show goes off the air.

    • raVen

      that would be great to see but it takes away an easy long time storyline for them in a time when they need storylines and to bring focus back on the title and the title contenders. the last thing I want is to see cena/hhh trading the title.

    • Progressed_Now

      there won’t be a contract. the ladder match will be for the title. and only one ladder match.

      • Coltcabunny

        How so? There were rumours of if this outcome came to pass then there would be 2 MITB ladder matches. For all we know they’ll announce such a thing on Raw tonight.

        • Progressed_Now

          2 MITBs for what? there are no longer seperate brands.

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            … he’s suggesting one ladder match for the briefcase and one for the title.

          • DoubleD

            Thanks, ese.

          • Coltcabunny


          • Donny Octave

            Makes it easier to get a new #1 Contender for the belt. It’s dead obvious why they would do that.

  • raVen

    you know what-GOOD!
    I love Brayn but he certainly needs a break after all that has happened and I would much rather have Bryan for years to come than to see him get an edge like injury, especially for a match w Kane (a HOF bound legend but at the end of his career) and a less than stellar story.

    • Donny Octave

      I agree wholeheartedly. If Bryan was to continue working, he would meet the same fate as Edge – an early retirement. And yes, you are right, Bryan will definitely be a HOF’er in due time. Which is why he needs to recover properly.

  • captaindaddy72

    I hope wwe creates a new main event star and not just give it back to someone like Orton or cena. Sadly tho, I got a feeling wwe will fall back and rely on cena or Orton in this situation :(

  • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

    If they want a face champ, I think it’ll go to Cena. If they want a heel champ, might go back to Orton.

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      There’s a long shot of this happening but if they go heel, I wouldn’t be shocked if they put the belts on Rollins ala when they put the belt on a young Orton in Evolution.

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        Maybe… I think it’s too soon though. Orton is the safe bet, to be honest. Sadly. I can totally see WWE thinking Rollins, Reigns and Cesaro aren’t read yet – but maybe they’ll surprise us and push on of these guys to the moon with that move. Time will tell.

  • http://www.sescoops.com Undertaker316

    it was best for daniel bryan not to wrestle at mitb he should take a few months off and return 100%

  • TheHound

    I would like to see a championship tournament at SS. Like the one at WM when Macho Man won. Have either Reigns or Bryan win.


    This truly sucks. But Daniel Bryan should take the time off to heal properly and come back to rightfully claim the WWEWHC belt again. It will do him the world of good after this bad run of luck he’s had ever since WM30. Lets hope the WWE creative team use this moment to push a fresh face into the Title picture. Bray Wyatt, all the shield members, Cesaro, Ziggler and BNB all putting in the best work i’ve seen in ages. But hey that’s just my two cents on the matter.

  • Ouch

    YES! YES! YES!

    We’ll get a new champion.

  • brad

    I gotta say I’m kind of glad mainly because we will get to see a Mitb match where the title is on the line, but in all seriousness I hope that Bryan gets well soon.

  • Tazz

    I hate to admit, this is the best thing for Bryan. He is coming off from having neck surgery less then a month ago. He was scheduled to face one if the most physical wrestlers on the roster in a very physical match. Chances of him severely further injuring his neck are too high. One bad bump could mean he is in a wheel chair for the rest of his life.

    I figured he’d make it to MITB and lose to the MITB winner but he’d still need to be in the match with Kane.

    Bryan needs to have time to heal and maybe come back. Hopefully be champion once again

  • ultrakombi

    Jericho or Kane plz

  • Scott Kinnard

    As much as I hate to see this, I’m glad he will be taking more time off to heal. I was worried he would try to compete before he was ready. He will get another shot and another title run. Between the injury, his dad dying, and his buddy Connor dying, it just wasn’t his time. I’d rather see him take time off and still have quite a few good years left.

  • omega riddler

    If the title is up for grabs, it would be cool if they added Adrian Neville

  • Jon

    damn Brie “quit” her job for nothing now lol

  • Marko

    God, I would love it if Chris Jericho or CM Punk returned to become the new champion.

  • Cityguy


  • imeeetch

    Dat opportunity

    • imeeetch

    • imeeetch

      Pictures take long

  • Bryan

    That sucks but I would rather Bryan getting medically cleared than him going out and taking worse damage than he already has that could possible end his wrestling career so as much as I’ll miss him they have no choice and I’m glad they are not putting pressure on Bryan and going against the doctors orders as they can crown a new champion and as long as Bryan gets it back as soon as he comes back I’m happy and I know other people will be annoyed about this but I wouldn’t mind if John Cena won the title so long as he drops it to Bryan when he returns or Kane as the man has been with the company for 18 years and he deserves to have one final run but other than those 2 men I don’t know of any person who would make the most sense as of right now that would be a perfect fit to be a transitional champion until Bryan returns but they could always pull something nobody would expect but I’d say they’d want Kane vs Bryan when he returns so it’s probably going to Kane but I won’t be shocked if Cena wins the belt but realistically going with heel vs face it would make the most sense to be Kane.

  • insomniacreviewer

    This majorly sucks but i would rather him get medically cleared and get healthy and return stronger and better then ever.

  • lolcenawins

    Well, unfortunately Cena is getting the belt. There’s no other way to slice it.

    • insomniacreviewer

      I hope they give the belt to someone else besides super ego Cena.

  • scott

    This is a blessing in disguise for Daniel Bryan. The guy no longer has to be forced back into action and can actually take time to heal. It also allows for some refreshment on his part and creative. Gives a chance for the fans to miss him and support him even more. But on the other hand I am worried about the Ziggler effect this will have because the second Ziggler finally got the belt he got injured and WWE never looked back after taking the titles off him and I am a little worried this guy wont ever make it back. But the fans just have to continue to support
