Randy Orton is expected to return to action in late April or early May. He will be attending a VIP signing session at WrestleMania Axxess on Sunday, April 3 in Dallas, followed by an appearance at the Middle East Film & Comic Con in Dubai from April 7th to April 9th. In January, Orton provided the following update regarding his health:

“I see many of you think I need neck surgery. I heard weeks ago that Meltzer stated it as a fact. I don’t keep up with gossip, so I didn’t think anything of it. As far as my shoulder, I was cut on 12/8. Things are ahead of schedule and I’m pumped to get back to work. As far as my neck, and I’m only debunking this ‘fact’ for the sincerely concerned fans, I DONT need neck surgery. Remember, unless you hear about it on WWE.com, you really should take everything you read online concerning pro wrestling with a grain of salt.”

Former WWE World Heavyweight champion Daniel Bryan has been pulled from his VIP signing at Wrestlemania Axxess on Sunday 4/3 in Dallas, Texas, according to PWInsider.

Bryan’s was also pulled from his “appreciation night” planned for WWE Live Events in New York, New Jersey and Washington, DC this weekend and also the upcoming WWE WrestleMania European tour.

WWE recently issued the following statement saying: “Daniel Bryan requested time off and it was granted.”

It is believed there is more to the story, although it’s not known at this time.

A replacement for Bryan at Axxess will be announced shortly.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
