Thursday afternoon WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan underwent a surgical procedure on his neck, as we learned would happen when word began to leak of the injury on Monday afternoon and then Bryan himself went on to make a formal announcement on RAW later that night.
Right after the surgery, Bryan’s wife, WWE Diva Brie Bella, tweeted out a brief report that everything with the surgery went about as well as could be expected.
Sooo grateful @WWEDanielBryan surgery went great! Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts!! Xxoo

As far as we know, this is the only real update at this time since the procedure was finished, and it’s great to hear his wife give such a positive report.
But for anyone looking for a concrete recovery timetable, that might be a little bit before we know anything about that. Surely there will be people that will be expecting something to be announced today, and they need to realize that, when dealing with a neck injury, all of the progress post-surgery has to be explored first before we know a date when he could return to the ring.
As for the status of Bryan’s titles, HHH will announce that decision on RAW Monday.
