LOS ANGELES – Yes, Daniel Bryan finally did it. The bearded brawler who honed his craft in in the halls of armories and high school gymnasiums, grappling for fifty dollars before crowds of tens, finally battled his way through the highest competition his chosen field has to offer, ascended the McMahon-guarded mountaintop and dethroned the ball-capped Goliath who guarded its peak to become the WWE Champion at SummerSlam.

And if not for the sting of a Viper’s bite and the treachery of a king (of kings), he still would be.

Although Bryan did indeed defy the odds (and The Chairman) by defeating John Cena for the ultimate championship at WWE’s  summer classic, the submission master’s stint at the top was a blink-and-you’ll-miss it affair, all thanks to a shocking collusion between Randy Orton and special guest referee Triple H that saw The Viper’s Money in the Bank contracted traded for Bryan’s freshly-procured WWE Championship.
