On the Jan. 13 edition of “Monday Night Raw,” WWE superstar Daniel Bryan reportedly suffered a concussion during the main event of the evening, which saw him turn on Bray Wyatt and The Wyatt Family. His concussion is said to be “serious,” and in the most recent update of the situation, he is expected to miss the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Due to his injury status, Bryan missed the WWE live event that occurred in Hammond, Ind. on Jan. 18. The event was one that he was previously advertised for. According to PWInsider, when announcer Tony Chimel informed the fans of Bryan’s absence, fans booed heavily.
With the crowd’s unhappiness, WWE decided it would be best to offer refunds to those who were displeased that Bryan could not appear. However, this is not the first time of a situation like this occurring. In the past, WWE has offered refunds to fans that attended live events in which John Cena did not appear, even though he was previously advertised.
