WWE World Heavyweight Championship - Daniel Bryan

September 15, 2013 - September 16, 2013

One month after winning and losing the WWE Championship in a matter of moments at SummerSlam, Daniel Bryan regained the title at Night of Champions by defeating Triple H's handpicked "face of the WWE," Randy Orton. With his victory, Bryan proved that he is more than just a "B-plus" player, as labeled by Stephanie McMahon.

However, just one night after Bryan captured the WWE Championship from Randy Orton, WWE COO Triple H declared the WWE Title be held in abeyance, citing a faster than normal three-count by WWE official Scott Armstrong at Night of Champions.
