— With WWE Chairman Vince McMahon recently blaming the “attractions” at SummerSlam being responsible for the show drawing a disappointing buyrate, a good part of that blame is going on Daniel Bryan. As we’re already seeing with the Big Show vs. Randy Orton Survivor Series main event, the feeling is that Daniel Bryan is too small and too “average” – so there’s a push to feature WWE’s larger-than-life characters at the top of the card.
— On Monday’s RAW, WWE advertised Big E Langston vs. Curtis Axel for this week’s episode of Main Event. That match did not take place because Langston was already on his way to Belfast, Ireland for WWE’s European tour when Main Event was tapd on Tuesday.
At the first show of the European tour, Big E teamed with Cody Rhodes and Goldust to defeat The Shield.
