John Cena will defend the WWE Championship against Daniel Bryan at SummerSlam. As the storyline goes, Cena was "allowed by Brad Maddox" to pick the opponent of his choosing, however, Cena asked for help from the audience. After "consulting with the audience," Cena selected Bryan to a huge pop from the crowd.
WWE has wanted to do Cena vs. Bryan and I'm told they're looking to tie the program in with content that will air on the "Total Divas" reality show premiering on E.
WWE SummerSlam 2013 will take place Sunday, August 18, 2013 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
