The feud between Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella is being treated like the SummerSlam main event on WWE’s flagship show.
Police investigations, pull-apart brawls, contract signings—this almost sounds like the Brock Lesnar-John Cena feud from 2012.
Stephanie McMahon can easily be considered the best heel in the WWE. Fans reveled in her (storyline) arrest and cannot wait to boo her as they come unglued at the mere sight of her grabbing a microphone.
McMahon is such a dynamic villain that the one-dimensional Brie Bella can be comfortably cheered as a hero in contrast. It’s almost as if she’s Daniel Bryan.
Given the momentum the McMahon-Bella feud has built, not to mention the anticipation of Stephanie’s first match in more than a decade, one could argue that this program is worthy of the SummerSlam main event.
If it weren't for a match being promoted as the biggest fight of the summer—between arguably the two biggest draws in wrestling—Brie-Stephanie would have a strong case to go on last.
