WWE have provided an injury update on fan favourite Daniel Bryan after the vicious attack by Jey Uso.
The Leader of the Yes Movement was defeated by the star on Friday’s episode of SmackDown.
But after he fell in line with cousin Roman Reigns’ rule, he then followed his instructions to deliver a brutal beatdown on the much-loved ace.
WWE claimed Bryan was complaining about lower abdominal and back pain afterwards.
He was then allegedly taken to a local hospital in Orlando, Florida.
WWE continued to state that Bryan suffered ‘multiple strains and contusions’.
Hopefully the injuries are only part of a storyline that looks set to result in a feud between Bryan and Uso.
And that could eventually lead to a super fight between him and Universal Champion Reigns.
Bryan and wife Brie Bella, another former WWE champ, welcomed the arrival of baby boy Buddy Dessert in August.
He returned to WWE action last month with fans delighted to see the 39-year-old back in the ring.
However, the future Hall of Famer told Talking Smack his stint as a full-time performer will be over once his existing deal expires.
The icon, real name Bryan Danielson, said: “In my mind, this is my last run, this is my last run as a full-time WWE Superstar.
“It's not really a scoop, I think you can feel it by even the way I approach things and my mentality as far as my view toward younger people and all that stuff.
“As I’m doing this last run it’s not like I gotta prove to everybody that I'm the best.
“When I'm out there I'm proving things to myself, and I want things better for the younger talent.”
Bryan has less than a year left on his contract, which expires in September 2021.
He was forced to retire due to medical issues in 2016 but made a triumphant return two years later after finally getting the all-clear.
Bryan has enjoyed a rollercoaster career since joining Vince McMahon’s company full-time in 2010.
He is a five-time world champion, two-time tag title holder as well as enjoying stints as holding both the US and Intercontinental belts.
