This thread is coming from a purely kayfabe perspective, and I am referring to the on-screen characters of HHH and Orton. What exactly was their goal at SummerSlam? It seems that WWE is pushing the story that they were out to screw Bryan specifically. But how did they know that Bryan was going to win? What if Cena had won? Would they have done the same thing to him? Was this just about making Orton the champ/face of the WWE, regardless of who won the match?
