Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton WWE Championship Match This On Sunday, Oct. 6
Daniel Bryan won the WWE Title at SummerSlam and again at Night of Champions, but can “The Beard” prove his powerful detractors wrong and make it three in a row when he takes on the chosen “face of WWE,” Randy Orton, at WWE Battleground for the vacant WWE Championship?
Neither Superstar will head into the contest with the champion’s advantage, thanks to The Game’s order on the Sept. 16 Raw to vacate the WWE Title. Triple H stripped Bryan of the championship in response to a fast count administered by now-dismissed referee Scott Armstrong during the Bryan-Orton title match at Night of Champions. While the WWE COO did not rule out collusion — an accusation seemingly substantiated by Armstrong’s admission of guilt — Bryan steadfastly denies any wrongdoing.
Regardless of that controversy, all eyes are now set on the first-ever WWE Battleground event on Sunday, Oct. 6, and its high-profile WWE Championship Match. What began as a rivalry based merely in mutual disdain has escalated over the past month into an all-out war that may determine the direction of WWE, both as sports-entertainment and as a business, for years to come.
Bryan has the unambiguous support of the WWE Universe and much of the locker room, though he lacks the endorsement of Triple H, who has twice orchestrated the dethroning of “The Beard” as WWE Champion. The WWE’s “Yes!” Man, however, is nothing if not relentless, and, Bryan appears determined to make the championship gold his again, once and for all.
The ever-dangerous Viper, intent on reestablishing himself as WWE’s Apex Predator, has ratcheted up the cruelty since his loss at Night of Champions. On the Raw the night after, Orton methodically decimated The Miz in The Awesome One’s hometown of Cleveland, causing what doctors have described as an upper thoracic injury.
Will Orton’s rediscovered mean streak overwhelm the spirit of the WWE Universe’s favorite underdog, Bryan?
