Also still to come, Batista and Randy Orton vs. Big Show and Daniel Bryan plus an appearance by The Undertaker. We see The Authority heading to the ring as we go back to commercial.
- Back from the break and out comes Triple H and Stephanie McMahon to the stage. Stephanie says Daniel Bryan attacked her husband last week and then suffered the consequences - a Pedigree. She says his actions are grounds for immediate termination but they've decided to lead by example. Stephanie apologizes, because that's what is best for business. She says they recognize there is value in Bryan's brand, not like Randy Orton or Batista or Triple H's brand but value nonetheless. Stephanie says Bryan has a niche following. She says Bryan must return the favor and apologize to them. She says it's time Bryan admitted that he's wrong and not man enough to be in the ring with Triple H... not now and certainly not at WrestleMania XXX. She says Triple H is above Bryan - professionally, figuratively and literally. Stephanie says as long as Bryan can apologize tonight, they can move forward. If not, there will be severe consequences. She hopes we enjoy the rest of the show.
