- The decision to have Randy Orton win the all-star Money in the Bank ladder match reportedly goes back two or three weeks. WWE officials felt they should do it because nobody would see an Orton win coming. One of the reported reasons Orton has been losing lately is because the company felt they needed to “bring him down to build him back up.”
– When the news of WWE’s plans to do an angle where John Cena let the WWE Universe pick Daniel Bryan as his SummerSlam opponent leaked last week, WWE officials went ahead and did the angle on this week’s RAW. The original plan was to happen a few weeks from now, nearer to when Total Divas aired. The feeling at RAW was that WWE wanted to put the official SummerSlam main event out there as early as possible.
