Backstage News on Original WWE SummerSlam Plans for Cesaro, Brock Lesnar and Daniel Bryan

– As of this past week, Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Bryan for the WWE World Heavyweight Title is not penciled in for SummerSlam, even though it seems like a natural match to make for the biggest show of the summer.

We noted before that Cesaro is a favorite to win the title shot in this year’s Money In the Bank ladder match. There was a plan discussed that would have seen Cesaro cash in on Lesnar at SummerSlam, right after Lesnar defeated Bryan for the title, and become the new champion. That plan is said to be off the table for now with Bryan’s status up in the air.

    brock wont be in title match at summerslam. he will be in this match:
    the beast(brock) vs. the animal(batista)

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    What? so lesnar can just disappear again? screw that

  • Keith Learmonth

    This whole “Bigger = Better in a fight” thing needs to stop. It’s total crap. Look at the early UFC tournaments, before weight limits: Almost all won by guys similar in size to Daniel, not Lesnar. With equal training, a smaller guy will almost always beat a bigger guy, due to having more maneuverability.

  • Jason Lentini

    I surely hope not.

    Point. I knew it didn’t sound right. Serves me right for posting when I am tired. 2 posts I’ve made mistakes on due to being tired. At least I can admit it though.

    its not about that at all, Daniel Bryan is not believable at all. Thats not his fault that is WWE fault. Yes he’s over because he has a chant that everyone loves to say. Lets not get carried away and say this is the guy WWE will give the ball to for years to come because hes not. Thats the reason I don’t want this guy to beat a guy like Lesner clean. Dont get it twisted either Eddie didnt beat Brock clean.

  • Don Kim

    No. He didn’t just BEAT the streak. He CONQUERED it.

  • rob

    it´s not just about size, i don´t think they make Bryan look strong enough to beat Brock lesnar and make it believable, actually they kinda make him look weak by getting beat by kane and HHH

  • Matthew Farrell

    Because a smaller guy can’t beat a bigger guy? Remember when Guerrero and Benoit beat Lesnar?

  • Solid Snake

    if Daniel Bryan beats him clean, that wont even be remotely believable.

  • Jason Lentini

    My client Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrock LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLesnar beat The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania, but lost the WWE World Heavyweight title moments after he won it ….. Stick that one where the sun doesnt shine Mr Heyman

  • Pissed Off Fan

    I would have the winner of the MITB ladder match face Brock in the main event at SummerSlam for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
