- Tons of Funk make their entrance which is cut off by the Wyatts' entrance.
Tons of Funk vs. Harper & Rowan
The lights come on and Harper and Rowan are in the ring. Tensai and Brodus take care of Rowan on the apron and they double team Harper in the ring. Rowan grabs Clay's foot and drags him to the outside. Harper ducks a clothesline and hits a big boot to Tensai. Harper hits a splash in the corner and tags Rowan who hits another splash on Tensai for the win.
Winners by pin: Harper & Rowan
Bray Wyatt enters the ring and hits Sister Abigail on Tensai and says, Follow the Buzzards, with a maniacal laugh.
- Another Los Matadores vignette runs.
- Cole sends to AJ Lee's "Pipebomb" promo from RAW. The Bellas are still annoying as ever. I know they had to "react" for the Total Divas cameras but man was that abrasive to the ears! I do not envy Cena nor Bryan.
- Ryback enters the ring for our main event and we go right back to commercial. Daniel Bryan makes his entrance and we see footage of the spray painted Escalade. Cole makes sure to coin BOTH "YesCalade" and "YesUV." Those clever WWE writers.
Ryback vs. Daniel Bryan
The bell rings and Bryan comes out of the corner with a big knee to the face of Ryback. Bryan goes to work with kicks but Ryback catches him and his a tilt-a-whirl powerslam. Ryback slows the pace with power moves and a running shoulder in the corner for 2. Ryback goes for another shoulder but Bryan moves and Ryback goes into the post. Big Show cheers Bryan on. Bryan goes on a flurry with 3 running dropkicks in the corner and dives onto Ryback on the floor. Randy Orton walks down the ramp and Ryback attacks Bryan from behind as we go to break.
Back to action with Yes Kicks in the ring to Ryback. Ryback cuts Bryan off with a spinebuster and winds up in the corner for a Meat Hook, which connects for 2. Bryan hits headbutts up top and knocks Ryback off. Bryan hits a missile dropkick and starts "Hulking up" like The Ultimate Warrior. Bryan hits a series of Yes Kicks to a kneeling Ryback. Bryan applies the Yes Lock on Ryback and Orton gets in the ring. The bell rings.
Winner by disqualification: Daniel Bryan
Bryan puts Orton in the Yes Lock as he taps and The Shield hit the ring and beat down Bryan. Big Show gets up from his chair and finally enters the ring. Orton and The Shield gather in the corner and back off. Triple H comes down and demands, off mic, that Big Show get out of the ring. Big Show starts to cry as he reluctantly steps over the top rope and exits the ring. Triple H calls him over and demands that Show leave up the ramp. He follows behind as Show leaves to the stage. Show looks back to the ring and weeps. Hunter points and says, "Now!" Show disappears in behind the entrance screen.
Hunter nods at the ring and The Shield hold Bryan for Orton knock senseless. Orton keeps telling them to pick Bryan back up for more punishment. He shows Bryan to all sides of the ring's fans. The Shield hits the triple powerbomb on Bryan as the fans chant, "Randy sucks." Orton grabs a can of spray paint and paints "nWo"... err I mean "NO" on Bryan's chest.
Final Thoughts: Great work by Big Show tonight. Although they have to explain Show's ironclad contract and why he can't just KO everybody. They got some real heat for Orton tonight but I still believe they dropped the ball with Orton's heel turn. It was an afterthought after the Pedigree from Triple H and it didn't even sink in immediately that he had turned. Seeing Orton with The Shield tonight was so anticlimactic. It reminded me of the anticipation a few months ago that he might join them. Orton should have turned heel on somebody with an RKO out of nowhere, not a delayed, lazy cover in the shadow of "The Emperor."
