Last week, we saw a man say that he was retiring, but it was a trap to get him a WWE Title Match at Money in the Bank. Last week, we saw a man suffer a shoulder injury during a match, but he refused to quit until he was forced to do so. Tonight, we get our third edition of that match in eight days. Last week, we saw a family that was at odds with itself over who was in charge. Who will be in charge this week? Last week, CM Punk returned to Raw and he was shown what happens when you are not a client of Paul Heyman. Will Curtis Axel put the exclamation point on what happened last week.

We are in North Charleston, South Carolina and your announcers are John ‘One Cup to Rule them All’ Layfield, Michael ‘Let’s hope the WWE App does not buffer’ Cole, and Jerry ‘How about putting a 100x100 in front of me tonight’ Lawler.

Daniel Bryan has something to say before his match with Randy Orton . . . again. He says before we start the match, he wants to say that there are some people who have accused him of having some sort of complex. Some people say that he is a walking example of the Little Man Syndrome. He has been hearing it for years. People question the fact that he is a wrestler. He says that people think that he is an extra in The Hobbit.

Daniel says that he was not an extra in The Hobbit. Whether it was teaming with Kane or his time in NXT, he has been called the ‘weak link’. Daniel says that those people are morons. He has fought toe-to-toe with Randy Orton twice. A weak link would have taken the count out victory and ran away. That is not enough for him. He will not be satisfied until he pins Randy Orton or makes him tap out in the middle of the ring.

Will it happen tonight? YES

Orton takes the mic from Daniel and he says that he came out to tell Daniel, straight to his face, Shut up and fight. Orton with a punch but Bryan with punches and a knee that sends Orton to the floor. The referee holds both men back and
