WWE SummerSlam results: Daniel Bryan's flying knee to John Cena (GIF)

WWE.com

This was just beautiful. So very beautiful. Daniel Bryan landing a flying knee to take out John Cena to win the WWE championship at "SummerSlam" last night (Aug. 18, 2013) in Los Angeles.

Even if he dropped the title to Randy Orton about five minutes after winning it, thanks to Triple H turning heel on him, Daniel Bryan actually pinned John Cena clean in the center of the ring to win the WWE championship at last night's (Sun., Aug. 18, 2013) SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

And his finishing move was a flying knee.

Take a look at this GIF (via cwmonkey.imgur.com):

Let's be honest: Cena deserves almost all the credit for this one. Yes, Bryan delivered the knee with his textbook efficiency, but Cena sold this like he got shot in the head with a cannonball. Actually, I might go so far as to say this is the greatest sell job of his entire career.
