Storyline Plans For The WWE World Heavyweight Championship


Update: On RAW, refused to surrender the WWE World Heavyweight Championship to Stephanie McMahon. Stephanie showed Bryan footage of his wife Brie putting her hands on her two weeks ago when Bryan was stretchered out on RAW, which Stephanie said was grounds for firing. Bryan now has until Sunday’s Payback pay-per-view to decide if he will surrender the title. Whether or not the title is vacated on Sunday or not, it’s still rumored that a new champion will be crowned soon.

Daniel Bryan’s WWE Return Could Take Longer Than Expected

With WWE Payback being this Sunday and the top matches for that show already finalized, there’s a lot of talk behind the scenes that the vacated WWE World Heavyweight Championship will be up for grabs at the June 29th pay-per-view.

Making that show a “must see event” – we could see one MITB match for the vacated championship and second MITB match, with the usual Money in the Bank briefcase on the line, containing a contract for a future title shot.

Potential Spoiler On Chris Jericho Returning To WWE

  • Undertaker316

    i predict chris jericho will be in wwhc ladder match

    • SOBI

      I hope your prediction becomes true

    • pwnez

      I just hope Orton doesn’t become champion again.

      • Kjhaltz

        Maybe Bootista

        • pwnez

          He’s leaving for awhile after Payback so that won’t happen.

          • WarPigsLukesWall

            The Rock says hi.

          • pwnez

            Batista’s situation is going to be different from the Rock’s. Rock didn’t go away completely, Batista is.

      • Al Oli


      • FlawlessRKO

        Your constant unjustified hate on Randy Orton is ridiculous. Nobody outside of this website gives a d*mn about your opinion. Triple H can put the WWEWHC on whoever he feels like. Including Randy Orton, so why don’t you just sit your monkey a** down and shut your mouth.

        • pwnez

          How would you know? Do you know me and the people who are around me outside of this website? Your username explains why you’re so butthurt over my opinion. No one gives two sh*ts about yours either.

          “Triple H can put the WWEHC on whoever he feels like.” You sound like such a whiny little baby. I was actually sitting down when I typed that comment out. Comment when you grow up.

        • scott

          That’s pwnez for you. Hates on any guy over 6’2 and 230 pounds.

          • FlawlessRKO

            An idiot who doesn’t know the first thing about true greatness. If I recall, Roman Reigns is 6’3 and 265 lbs. Does he hate him too?

          • scott

            No. For whatever reason he likes Reigns. Don’t know why if theres a guy to hate or dislike its Reigns

          • -_-

            Speaking of dislike, I wish the dislike button returned just for your comment.

          • -_-

            You can take Boreton’s D*** out your mouth now.

    • QuiteFrankly2k

      I know that its not good that Bryan is leaving and all but personally I always find having a vacant championship to be entertaining. Especially if their is some sort of tournament, maybe returns. The plans change — i feel like it does well for views although in this case its kinda bad for views lmao

  • pharmxy

    Or ………if you reeaaaallllyyyyy wanted split titles again here’s your chance….each title contested at money in the bank in some form….just so crazy it might work

    • Undertaker316

      or if they wanted to introduce a new belt instead of the champion having to carry both belts, also they seem to be pushing the intercontinental championship as more prestigious championship so it doesn’t look like they will split the belts

    • Jacob Rael

      Or not, thats a terrible idea

    • MajorHeel

      They should either split the titles and have 2 separate MITB matches or have one MITB to be for the titles and the other to be for a contract

  • Mrs. Ambrose #MNW

    I think that the MITB match is a better option.

  • Stay Phokus

    spilt the titles

    • Jacob Rael


    • gdaddy1971

      The only reason to split them and have two titles again would be if they were bringing back the brand split. Other than that, there is no reason to have two titles.

  • Cooperdst81

    Yeah this is your chance they need to do it. It’s pretty much now or never.

  • NextWorldChamp

    Hooray Vacant is getting the title back. Best champ ever.

    • Undertaker316
      • 5er

        Yeah right. his title reigns are usually short and boring.

      • Doon

        I don’t think he’s ever won a title defense match though…

        • Undertaker316

          at least he put over talent by letting them always win

    • God’s Diamond

      Just remember everyone, vacant is a french wrestler so it’s pronounced vuh-cawnt. ;)=

  • wwe

    those belts are cursed

  • Feelmemore

    That puts so much hype on MITB, I’m excited if that’s the case. I wonder who will win it.

  • CSSA

    Money in the bank for the belt itself could be nice. Hope Ryback gets a good spot in the match. Maybe powerbomb Kofi Kingston through two ladders.

  • Coach

    They should drop the belts to someone new, not the usual cast.

    • Matt Gallagher


      • Coach

        That would probably be the best choice. He can get over as a babyface or a heel.

        • Matt Gallagher


      • G.I.R.L.

        Not yet. Cesaro needs to be made into a mega star WITHOUT a title on his new waist first. When he eventually wins the championship, I want him to win it cleanly in a 1 on 1 title match against a formidable champ. It’s the only way he’ll keep his dignity in the long haul.

        • Matt Gallagher

          Read the comment above it

          • G.I.R.L.

            I did, that’s why I say “NO Cesaro”.

    • JA_Media

      Ambrose would be a great choice!

      • fuzzy

        F*** NO

      • Al Oli

        Yes he would. He knows how to carry a title and make it seem like the most important thing in the world.

        • Pozessed

          He is part of the shield now which means his character is pretty restricted, he could perhaps be a good champ when single and his character has been shown to the fans properly but not yet. Plus, his matches haven’t really been THAT special… I think Reigns has more of a change at getting it than Ambrose.

  • Chris Savage

    i see one of two things happening with the vacated titles they unify it in to one belt and just go with the WWE title belt instead of the WHC belt due to the fact that it has the company logo on it. in all honesty i could see jericho winning the belts in a MITB situation but being cashed in on by kane that same night. thus setting up a triple threat feud for the belts

  • Jimmy

    This sounds exactly like something I heard on Ring Rust Radio.

  • fatneal

    i say split the titles back up…the way they “unified” em was sloppy and uneventful…plus carrying around the two belts is dumb when youre view as champ in one “division” ya know..

  • JerichoHolic

    I’m surprised that SEScoops haven’t made an article with an ‘update’ on CM Punk coming back to win at MITB…..

    In all seriousness though I can only see guys like Cena, Orton, Sheamus, Kane (as long as he’s billed as a monster)..

    Too early for guys like Wyatt, Reigns and Cesaro to have it and I wouldn’t really want to see a start return to take it unless it’s Jericho in all honesty as he can at least put people over without having a problem.

  • Jas

    Goldberg Goldberg Goldberg!!!

  • captaindaddy72

    With vacant titles on the line at a ppv, that would be one hell of a way to promote the wwe network

  • scott

    Its Cesaro’s time!!!!

    • Scott summers

      No its party time!!!!

      • Randy badger

        Don’t be a lemon

  • Buzzard Follower

    I like this idea. Now im not crazy that agian the title will be vacate for a month like last year but a 7/8 man ladder match for the gold worth it

  • TVR

    Two money in the banks are too much. Have a one on one match for the title and have just one MITB match.

  • wastelander

    Split the belts for Money in the bank, 2 ladder matches, one for each belt. Then have a unification match at summer slam.

    • We’re Here

      Why split them for a month just to rejoin them? I like the idea of the two ladder matches for the titles, but it seems extraneous to go through the trouble of splitting them to just reunify them.

  • YesYesYes420

    I know who the next WWE WHC is…and all you have to do is BOLIEVE!

  • jrod

    MITB CM Punk returns to claim the title

  • punk295aj

    No everyone is wrong Daniel will drop the titles to Kane and punk comes back to wwe and faces Kane for wwhc at mitb later at that eventmitb Daniel win to later become wwhc champion!!!



  • DeezNutz

    Well they were wrong unless they wait to do it at payback.

  • Dixie Carter

    Business advice? Move RAW back to 2hours. Suspend Main Event Flop til after the summer. Give the Network a discount to $6 for 6months.

    Retire Cole. Take HHH off TV in an on air role. Bring Vince back or make Stephanie the FACE general manager of RAW (her heel character is horrendous). And well…Smackdown? Suspend it also or make it a 1hour show. It’s unfixable without a summer break.

  • Stephen

    They an opportunity on Sunday to something different. Rather than surrender the championship to Stephanie, Bryan could choose to defend the championship, and then ceremoniously lie down to his opponent, and new champion, CM Punk??? Then let Punk carry the title until Bryan comes back, and the two of them have a series of matches.
    If not that, then I would like to see the return of the 14-man tournament to crown a new champion, and it would be really bold if WWE let the fans vote on who was actually in the tournament.

    • Kevin Nelson

      Punk would have to come back first

  • Alvin

    Can’t WWE please bring back the MITB match at WrestleMania?!?! Not saying get rid of the PPV, but I miss the MITB being at WM!!!

  • raVen

    a surprise would be nice. it may not work but it will be interesting to see.
