The WWE family just lost the Ultimate Warrior days after WrestleMania XXX, and now a member of the WWE family is dealing with another loss. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan, who won the main event and titles at WrestleMania XXX, has lost his father.

The WWE released the following statement:

WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan’s (Bryan Danielson’s) father has unexpectedly passed away. Bryan was made aware of his father’s passing after returning from his honeymoon with Brie Bella. Despite the news, Bryan has insisted on performing for the WWE Universe tonight (April 21) and will be on Raw. WWE extends our deepest condolences to Bryan and his family.

It is certainly tragic and Bryan’s family is in the thoughts and prayers of everyone at FanSided. If there is one small positive take away from this, his father got to see Bryan win the championship as well as get married to Brie Bella before his passing.
