Well, it appears the WWE may not be as fully invested in Daniel Bryan as we may think.
For a few weeks now, it’s been heavily rumored that Bryan would be going head-to-head with John Cena for the WWE title.
To me, this match as it stands would make for an interesting feud. Especially considering Cena and Bryan have something in common outside of the ring in the Bella twins. This feud could give the twins a chance to break away from each other and develop individual characters apart from being the only twins in the WWE.
Not only would it give the fans some interesting storylines, it would also provide a great matchup for the last pay-per-view of the summer.
Sadly, it seems like the company may be going in a different route, as WrestlingInc.com is reporting:
While Daniel Bryan vs. John Cena for the WWE Title has been discussed for this year's SummerSlam pay-per-view, there have been some pushing for a Triple Threat with Cena defending against Mark Henry and Ryback.
Personally, I feel if WWE isn't planning on giving Henry the title, there is no reason to continue a feud with Cena. The truth of the matter is, the WWE doesn’t seem like it wants Cena to drop the title anytime soon. So pitting him against his last two challengers almost guarantees a Cena victory—especially if Henry loses at Money in the Bank.
On the other hand, if Henry does become WWE champ two weeks from now, one has to wonder where Ryback would fit into this match. Yes, he is the second or third top heel the company has right now, but it seems odd to randomly insert him into a match with Cena and Henry.
Any way you slice it, the WWE needs to figure out what it is going to do with this main event. The fact is, this could be a great match or a cluster depending on where the company goes with it. Not to mention, what will happen with Bryan if the WWE decides not to utilize him in the main event?
In the end, we still have a little over a month for the company to build up this match. That being said, I am hopeful the company doesn't mess up Bryan’s push or the main event for its biggest pay-per-view of the summer.
