While many backstage at SummerSlam believed that the work was fantastic, some took the “now we can tell a great story and when Bryan gets his revenge it will get him over even more” stance. Another portion took the “They should have let Bryan have his moment and it would have made him right there and he wouldn’t have had to be made after a chase” position.
Several with the company also commented that the it made no sense for Bryan to being on the receiving end of a Pedigree, have all the time pass between then, and Randy Orton getting to the ring, ringing the bell and then get the pinfall, yet Bryan couldn’t kick out. Few people also pointed out that it’s ridiculous that a maneuver from a retired wrestler is so devastating that it outdid anything that John Cena did in the match.
