We can confirm that WWE has a long-term plan right
now to work towards a Daniel Bryan vs. Brock Lesnar match for the WWE World
Heavyweight Championship at this year’s SummerSlam pay-per-view. These plans
could change depending on what happens with Bryan and the title heading into the
upcoming Money In The Bank pay-per-view at the end of this month.
With Bryan-Lesnar planned for SummerSlam, this would
mean that the inevitable showdown between “Paul Heyman Guys” Lesnar and Cesaro,
when the latter makes his eventual baby face turn, wouldn’t be taking place
until after SummerSlam.
It should be noted though
that one idea that was discussed in recent weeks was that Lesnar would win the
World Heavyweight Title at SummerSlam and then Cesaro would come down and cash
in to win the title. Of course, SummerSlam is still several months away and we
don’t know who will have the briefcase at that time. As we’ve been reporting,
Cesaro is heavily favored to win the Money in the Bank ladder match. With that
being said and depending on Daniel Bryan’s status, there is a chance nobody will
have a briefcase this year.
As you can see, the Daniel
Bryan surgery has messed things up big time for WWE.
