Backstage News On WWE Championship Plans, Randy Orton To Cash In At SummerSlam? & More

Word going around WWE is that the current plan has Daniel Bryan defeating John Cena at SummerSlam for the WWE Championship, only to see Randy Orton cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase, win the WWE Championship and finally make his long-awaited heel turn.

It’s possible WWE announces the Randy Orton neck injury on RAW and keep him off TV for a few weeks, that way his cash in at SummerSlam will be more of a surprise.

As of this week, there is currently no Bryan vs. Cena rematch planned for September’s Night of Champions pay-per-view which gives another sign that Orton may be cashing in at SummerSlam.

    sounds awesome! I don’t know, but I can’t really stand Daniel Bryan. I wish The Miz would get a push and finally win the WHC!

    D-Bry lost the belt in 15 seconds….then he’d lose the belt again on a PPV in similar fashion, style, etc. Some bullshit. Let him cook for a bit. Fans love him. I do think it will make Orton the asshole they want, but at the expense of D-Bry’s awesome work. That sucks. Unless this makes him go shield or heyman or something….then I’m all for it.

      This will be good for everyone i think. Orton turns heel and screws Bryan. Bryan gets held back and Maddox doesnt give him his rematch. Maybe Orton and Maddox have some kind of alliance. Then Bryan could get into some other feuds with whoever, maybe Big Show since Bryan screwed him. Then I would have Bryan win the Rumble and face Orton or whoever in the main event at WM and finally get the big win hes needed. Sort of a Benoit moment, wel deserved and cheated out of the title a couple times.

    The shield doesnt need him. He’s already established and that would hurt the shield

      Established but aimless. I think they need someone to step in and either direct them or speak for them or something. Not about “need” but they just seem aimless. Adding D-Bry who has a storyline of getting screwed and wanting “justice” seems quite fitting to me. Maybe folks should be hiring out the shield like APA. Something, right now, they just seem aimless.
