John Cena comes down in a yellow "Never Give Up" t-shirt to tell the fans that, yes indeed, he too is disgusted by what happened at SummerSlam. After showing the cameras the disgusting tennis ball-sized growth on his left elbow, he announced he was leaving for four to six months for surgery.
Cena introduced Daniel Bryan before exiting stage left, but before he could say a word, Stephanie McMahon hit the ring. She tells Bryan Triple H was just doing what's best for business, but the crowd chanted "No, no, no" with considerable enthusiasm.
Bryan calls Triple H a sellout and Stephanie trash. You see, he's not afraid of being fired. He'd rather be wrestling in Armories anyway.
Stephanie is willing to let it all slide. She just wants to manage his expectations. In a nutshell: He's short, ugly and small. He's not an A, but he is a B+.
"You're starting to remind me of a word that starts with the letter B right now," Bryan explained. He won't, however, accept that. He knows in his heart he can be the champion. As tensions escalate, Bryan is eventually escorted from the building.
Stephanie McMahon has Daniel Bryan escorted from the building by security after he refuses to settle for being a B+.
Memorable Moments and Quotes
"I want to take a second to publicly thank Daniel Bryan for bringing out the best in me," John Cena. The two had a match for the ages on pay-per-view.
"Tonight I leave the WWE," John Cena. Fans erupt in cheers before realizing that's awful and their mommas didn't raise them like that.
"He's wearing a suit, he's got a corporate haircut and I guess what they say is true. When you lie down with trash sooner or later you start to stink," Daniel Bryan to Stephanie.
"A solid B+," McMahon said. Bryan did not consider that a compliment.
A solid B+
I appreciate that the crowd doesn't all care for Cena. That he's been pushed down their throats for years. But he gave everything he had at SummerSlam, wrestling a classic match despite a serious injury. I think he deserves a modicum of respect.
Bryan is getting better on the stick every week. He doesn't look out of place in the slightest, and the crowd was behind him as they attempted to reinvent "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. The Texas Rattlesnake would have Stunnered all five of those lame security son of a guns and Stephanie too. Then he would have drank a case, shot the bird and given everyone a "Hell yeah." Daniel just walked to the back like a mopey Charlie Brown. So Bryan is not there yet.
But he's getting close.
