Vickie Guerrero is in the ring and she welcomes everyone to Smackdown. On behalf of the McMahon family, it is with great excitement that she introduces the new WWE Champion, Randy Orton.
Randy makes his way to the ring.
Randy says that as their new WWE Champion, he promises to give everything that they want and deserve. They will aspire to be him. He promises to be a role model. A role model tells the truth. That is what he did. He told everyone, especially Daniel Bryan, that when he cashed in, none would see it coming.
None of you, including Daniel Bryan, should be surprised at what happened. Randy says that he is the one who should be surprised. Sunday night, he did not know that Triple H was going to pedigree Daniel Bryan. Randy says that he is not one to pass up an opportunity literally lying in front of him.
Randy says that he did not need Triple H’s help on Sunday and he did not need The Shield’s help on Monday. He appreciates the support from the entire McMahon family, but he also wants the support of the fans. After all, he is not only the WWE Champion, he is also the face of the WWE.
Daniel Bryan’s music plays and he make his way to the ring.
Daniel enters the ring and he has something to say.
Daniel says before he addresses the face of the WWE, he wants to say what he was going to say on Raw before he was interrupted by Stephanie McMahon. He has a short message for John Cena. He tells John ‘Thank You’. He thanks John for giving him the opportunity to wrestle him at SummerSlam and for being bold and courageous enough to wrestle with an injured triceps.
If he was better for just that day, it gave him the chance to feel what it was like to be WWE Champion.
Daniel tells the Face of the WWE that it is time for that face to change. Daniel says that he doesn’t look like Randy Orton. Randy is chiseled. He is tall. He’s pretty. He is so pretty. Daniel says that he can see why Triple H likes him so much. He is so pretty. Daniel says that Randy is also arrogant. Randy has been handed every opportunity in the WWE.
He has created his own success, but his opportunities have come to him because his father and grandfather were here. He has been given the genetic golden ticket to be in the WWE.
Daniel still can’t get over how pretty Randy is.
He tells Randy that he is so pretty it makes him want to kick Randy in the face. Daniel says that he had to scratch and claw for every opportunity. He had to wrestle in every dirty gymnasium and on staph infected mats. He had to sleep in his car and he had to earn every step. Daniel says that he is not tall and he is not pretty.
Daniel says that he can wrestle. He can beat Randy. Daniel says that he can beat Randy for the that and he points to the WWE Title belt.
Daniel says that he is entitled a rematch for the WWE Championship. He says that he wants that rematch to happen tonight.
The fans like the idea of the rematch.
However, Randy tells Shortstuff that he will have to wait until Night of Champions. Orton tries for an RKO but Bryan avoids it. Bryan kicks Orton and Randy goes to the floor.
