WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan will undergo neck surgery Thursday and is expected to be out of action until at least the WWE Payback pay-per-view June 1.
If Bryan is unable to return by Payback, he should be back by the Money in Bank pay-per-view June 29, according to the report.
The surgery is just the latest chapter in a whirlwind month for the underdog champion. A little more than a month ago, he won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 30. A couple of days later, he married fellow WWE star Brie Bella.
