Daniel Bryan comes out and says The Authority gave him a chance to be face of WWE, but he says he doesn't want that and just wants to be a champion. He says he ended up beating Randy Orton on Monday, but The Authority showed their true colors by sending Kane to attack him. Bryan says it's time for Kane to come tell him why he's a corporate sellout and a backstabber, but Kane simply tries to apologize. He stands on the stage and says his actions were unprofessional, but Bryan tells him to talk to him in the ring and asks what happened to him.

Bryan says the Big Red Machine is missing and that guy was his friend, so he tells Kane to go put his mask back on and stop being a sellout. Kane says they do have history, but it is only history, and he upgraded to a corner office so he is happy that he's not part of Team Hell No anymore. Kane says they were never friends and he'd rather make money, but Bryan says he is doing well for himself because he has arenas full of friends. Bryan tells Kane to end this right now and come settle things in the ring, but Kane tells him that isn't happening. Kane says he put Bryan in a match as an act of good faith, and he will face Antonio Cesaro tonight, and wishes him luck on his way out.

Reigns catches Kofi offguard and hits an apron dropkick for two, then we get back from a break to see Kofi take Ambrose down with a crossbody. Kofi catches him with a kick to the head, then Dolph tags in and dropkicks Reigns before splashing him in the corner. (Cont'd…)
