Backstage News on Randy Orton Winning MITB, Cena-Bryan Angle on RAW
– When news leaked last week of WWE’s plans to do an angle where John Cena let the WWE fans pick Daniel Bryan as his SummerSlam opponent, WWE officials went ahead and did the angle on this week’s RAW. It was originally planned to happen a few weeks from now, closer to when Total Divas aired. The feeling at RAW was that they wanted to put the official SummerSlam main event out there as early as possible.
– The decision to have Randy Orton win Money in the Bank goes back two or three weeks. WWE officials felt they should do it because nobody would see an Orton win coming. One of the reasons Orton has lost a lot lately is because they felt they needed to “bring him down to build him back up.”
