Update: On RAW, Daniel Bryan 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.
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 Money in the Bank 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.
