A new report suggests that Daniel Bryan could be out another three months. Deadspin's David Shoemaker posted the following to Twitter:
I'm hearing Daniel Bryan needs Tommy John surgery and will be out at least 3 more months.
Bryan has previously said that he has more arm strength loss than they expected and could require another surgery, so this may confirm it. Tommy John surgery is a UCL reconstruction most commonly done on pitchers due to their use of a particular muscle group. However, the average rehab time for Tommy John surgery is a year, with elbow excercises not able to begin until over a month into the recovery. Thus, whether Shoemaker's report of the recovery time is accurate or not isn't certain.
