- The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has confirmed the previous reports of four top SummerSlam matches being locked in – Stephanie McMahon vs. Brie Bella, Bray Wyatt vs. Chris Jericho, Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Title. Daniel Bryan vs. Kane in a Buried Alive Match had been discussed at one point but that’s looking unlikely given Bryan’s recovery.
– We noted before that WWE decided to give John Cena the WWE World Heavyweight Title as soon as they knew Daniel Bryan was being stripped. While Bray Wyatt may have been one of the leading candidates to win the ladder match at Money In the Bank, he was never considered.
