Possible WWE World Title Scenario If Daniel Bryan Gets Stripped, No New Champion Until MITB?



daniel-bryan-titles

As PWMania.com reported, WWE is expected to announce the official decision on what they’re going to do with the WWE World Heavyweight Title on tonight’s RAW.

One potential scenario is to put top Superstars into a Money In the Bank ladder match at the June 29th Money In the Bank pay-per-view and instead of having a future title shot up for grabs, have the winner get the title itself.

Given that Payback is already booked up, if they decide to strip Bryan of the title this week it’s possible we won’t see a new champion crowned until Money In the Bank.

  • Bryan

    Who cares? they’ll just put it around someone who has wore it over and over and over and fucking over.

    • chris

      Well most of the top guys have won It already right?..the times not now for Cesaro to win it but it wld be cool if he did..i don’t think that they would risk pting the title on a new guy knowing that Bryan may win it back as soon as he returns..that wouldn’t be a good idea to ruin what could be a nice run by a new guy winning it just to have Bryan win when he returns

    • FlawlessRKO

      Good.

      • Bryan

        I’m not saying don’t put it on anyone who’e never held it. I just want to see someone different. I’d take sheamus over orton. I’d even take batista over cena.

  • ChloeMatthews

    This is getting old. New champion, favored by The Authority, Bryan chases for the title again as the under dog, etc. Recycled story lines. It’s actually getting quite boring.

    PUT THE TITLE ON ZIGGLER!

    • FlawlessRKO

      Never going to happen.

      • ChloeMatthews

        Lol I know.

        • WesDoobner

          Ziggler had his push last year when WWE let him become WH champion and it lasted for 5 weeks. He’s officially a jobber now.

  • codys moustache

    Great. Whomever gets the title at mitb will obviously face bryan at summerslam. But will they drop it to bryan? Aren’t title runs meant to be longer these days? Since the world heavyweight was created Orton had a 4 month reign, bryan only held it for 2 and the new champ 1 month?

    • FlawlessRKO

      Randy’s reign was actually six months since it started at Hell in a Cell.

  • Mr Slippyfist

    Punk could make a return and win it. If not him, maybe someone like Cesaro will get his chance with it. Maybe Brock will hold it for a little while. Plenty of possibilities. Cross your fingers for something good.

    • jmull

      Punk would be awesome, but you know he won’t come back for a win only to turn around and drop it to Bryan at SS.

      • Mr Slippyfist

        I totally agree with that, but him dropping it right a way wouldn’t need to happen.

        I keep thinking of a scenario where Trips, Cena and Stephs heel Authority, go up against Punk and Bryan w/ Vince, Face Authority trying to regain control of the company.

        • jmull

          That would be interesting; reminiscent of the McMahon family battles of the early 2000s. Of course, you’re assuming a Cena heel turn, which is a MAJOR move I don’t think they’re making anytime soon, unfortunately.

          • ksedude

            Reverse the roles of Punk and Cena in that scenario and you’re on to something. lol. Always liked Punk better as a heel.

  • matthewgarriet

    PUT IT ON REIGNS

    • James Tebrucio Luna

      Too early for that

  • jmull

    Payback is not booked up, there are only 4 matches on the damn card so far. Whatever they do will be to set up Summerslam, and I sense a triple threat match at Summerslam.

    • jmull

      Ziggler or Reigns or Wyatt is certainly not happening, nor should it happen now.

    • theripperdannyb

      It may not be released yet but the plans are in place.

      • jmull

        Well the fucking thing as a week away!

  • theripperdannyb

    TBH, they may be doing this in case Bryan can return in time for MITB, that way they can go forward with him vs Lesnar at Summerslam.

    What I would like to see would be more than one MITB ladder match, one where the winner becomes champion, and another for someone to still win the contract.

    The biggest issue they have is that the only guys capable of holding the belt no one wants to see, guys like Cena, Orton, Sheamus and Triple H. The spanner in the works of course could be Bray Wyatt, but I doubt it.

  • Jason

    PUT IT ON KANE! HIS FIRST REIGN ONLY LASTED 24 HOURS, HIS SECOND REIGN WITH THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT LASTED AFEW MONTHS UNTIL IT WAS DROPPED TO EDGE, SO ALL IN ALL KANE HAS ONLY HAD IT TWICE IN HIS 16+ YEAR CAREER!

    • WesDoobner

      Kane keeps getting screwed over by WWE. I highly doubt they will let Kane become WWE champion. But if so, he will have a short reign like before.

      • Jason

        Even so. He should have at least afew more reigns under his belt before he retires. He is a 16+ year vet and should at least have allot more opportunities then he has had.

    • jmull

      Kane hasn’t held the title because he is a gimmicky role player. Oh and he’s boring as fuck.

      • Jason

        Reason why he is “boring as fuck” as you put it, is because his character is being Toyed with. It would be more interesting to see him as a Monster and an Unleashed one at that. But with this PG bullshit there has to be “limits” which makes it boring.

        • jmull

          I agree with that. His type of character is certainly hindered by the PG rating. The since they don’t know that to do with him, he goes from monster, to comedy act act in Team Hell No, to Corporate Kane, back to monster with no explanation = kills his character.

          • Jason

            They unleashed him to a point when his masked was taken off. Electrocuting shane mcmahons testicles, Tombstoning Linda on stage, Chokeslamming Eric bischoff off stage, Setting JR on fire, Taking RVD captive, chained and gagged pouring gasoline all over him. Destroying everyone who gets in his way, this is the kane we know. Especially in his Debut back in the late 90s This is the kane that has entertainment all over it. But flip-flopping his character and watering it down for “PG” makes him who he is now. for example, look at DX from the 90s TV-14 in comparison to the DX from PG, it was watered down to how good it was. Same goes for Kane. I would like to think the same with Bray Wyatt. he is good now, but he would be even better if it wasnt for this whole PG thing. and thats my point.

          • jmull

            Definitely, and very good point about Bray Wyatt.

  • James Tebrucio Luna

    You know what I’d love to see is a Scramble Match for the Vacant WWE World Heavyweight Title with the same Scenario when Jericho won It at Unforgiven 2008

    • Jason

      The only reason why Jericho won it, because Punk was Punt kicked in the skull and couldnt compete. and this was the same scramble that had a whinny bitch by the name of Matt Hardy win the ECW championship. the Scramble might have its Pros, but it has its Con’s aswell. and to reduce the WWE World Heavyweight championship down to be decided based on Time is degrading in my opinion. Because you never know who would capture it with a fluke win and end up being a paper champion.

      • James Tebrucio Luna

        True, did not think of that…
