Daniel Bryan Wins WWE Championship at Night of Champions, But For How Long Will He Hold It?

Tonight at WWE Night of Champions for the second pay-per-view in a row the ultimate underdog Daniel Bryan defied the odds to become WWE Champion by defeating Triple H‘s handpicked WWE Champion, Randy Orton, in the same fashion he defeated John Cena, with the use of what seems to be his new finishing maneuver, the Running Busiaku Knee Lift, but the question now lingers will he be WWE Champion once Raw concludes tomorrow night?

During the main event match at the Joe Lewis Arena in Detroit, Michigan, referee Scott Armstrong was knocked to the outside and tended to by a doctor when another official took his place. Armstrong recovered, reentered the match waving the replacement official off and concluded the match, counting the pinfall but what seemed to be in a very quick fashion.

Earlier in the night Triple H promised nobody, not he nor The Shield nor The Big Show would interfere in the main event as he wanted to see, as explained to Orton in an even later segment in the show, if he’d made the right choice in determining the new face of the WWE, so a referee being told to make Bryan’s win dubious is plausible.

That said, as of right now Daniel Bryan is recognized as the WWE Champion for the second time in thirty-three days. This makes Raw extremely interesting viewing tomorrow night.
