According to PWInsider.com, while the response to the ending of SummerSlam last night has been mostly positive, there was somewhat of a mixed bag type reaction backstage in WWE.
Some felt the angle was fantastic, and now Daniel Bryan is in a place where he can he can tell a great story chasing the title and getting his revenge, which will get him over even more.
Others felt WWE should have let Bryan have his WWE Title win moment, as the win against Cena at a PPV like SummerSlam was enough to get him over immediately, and he wouldn't need to try to get over chasing the title.
It's also being said that there were several people who thought it was pretty ridiculous that Bryan couldn't kick out of the Orton pin since so much time had elapsed between the pin and Triple H's pedigree. The feeling by some is that a retired wrestler's maneuver shouldn't more devastating than anything John Cena did to Bryan during the bout.
