Randy Orton has found himself in a very comfortable position. Former WWE Champion John Cena is out of commission for up to six months. WWE COO Triple H is firmly in The Viper’s corner — although Orton claims he had no idea Triple H was going to do what he did at SummerSlam. And Mr. McMahon himself said he didn’t want Daniel Bryan to emerge from SummerSlam as WWE Champion.
The odds are certainly against the submission specialist ever becoming WWE Champion again. But the journeyman grappler who Stephanie McMahon described as a “B+” Superstar will get another chance at the WWE Title at Night of Champions. Can you think of a bigger underdog than Bryan in recent years?
Last week Bryan suffered a beating from The Shield and an RKO from The Viper. What might the powers that be do next to try to keep Bryan down? Find out Monday at 8/7 CT on USA Network.
