Daniel Bryan was scheduled to make an appearance at Sunday’s WWE Payback pay-per-view, as well as RAW and SmackDown, but he’s been pulled from the road so he can focus on physical therapy. It’s believed within WWE that Bryan won’t return to TV until he’s been cleared to wrestle or until they need him to promote his book and DVD, whichever comes first.

– Paige is scheduled to return to the ring at tonight’s WWE live event in State College, PA. As noted, she’s been away filming WWE Studios’ “Santa’s Little Helper” with The Miz.

– Regarding The Miz, he’s expected to be back sometime in the next month or so but plans haven’t been finalized for his return.
