Daniel Bryan reached a career high Aug. 19 during WWE SummerSlam 2013, but just as quickly as he achieved success, his new title was snatched out from under him. After besting WWE Champion John Cena and receiving the coveted title, Daniel’s dreams were crushed by a crafty Randy Orton — he cashed in his Money In The Bank contract after The Game decided to pedigree Daniel — and ended up leaving the ring belt-less.

Daniel was more than willing to fight Randy — in fact, he practically demanded that they face each other — but in the end, Randy was able to procure the title without breaking a sweat.

Legal loopholes; you’ve got to love ’em!
