Hunter wants to clarify some confusion last week. They said that if Daniel Bryan could come out and beat the WWE World Champion Randy Orton, they would re-consider him as the Face of the WWE. They are re-considering Daniel Bryan, but they are also re-considering Sheamus, Christian, Antonio Cesaro, and John Cena.
Randy Orton interrupts Hunter and he makes his way to the ring. Stephanie asks Randy if he is seriously doing this again while they are talking about the potential new face of WWE. She tells Randy to go to the locker room to get ready for his main event match.
Randy says that he has been doing some thinking. He needs to apologize for his actions. Randy is not apologizing to the people. He is here to apologize to Stephanie and Hunter. He has been childish, selfish, and foolish. In order to get what he wants, he needs to give Hunter and Stephanie what they want. Randy says the Viper is back, starting tonight when he faces John Cena.
Stephanie asks how can they trust him. Where is this coming from?
Randy says that it is coming from the heart. Stephanie asks if Randy is feeling the pressure about Daniel Bryan. Randy says that he is thinking about six months ago when he cashed in his briefcase on Daniel Bryan and he was called the Face of the WWE. They stood in the ring united. Randy wants to make good on a promise made to him on that night. He doesn’t want to be the face of the WWE only in the ring. He wants to be the face outside the ring. He wants to do the interviews, be on cereal boxes and billboards.
No one else in this company is the Face of the WWE.
Daniel Bryan’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring. Daniel asks Randy if he thinks he is the heart and soul of the WWE. It seems like Randy is a different body part. Stephanie does not appreciate either of them interrupting her and her husband on live television. Now people will need to make an appointment with the Director of Operations.
Daniel says that Kane is nowhere to be found unless he is doing her business. Kane tried to interfere in their match and Kane failed. Daniel reminds everyone that he beat Randy Orton. This week, he decided to go over Kane’s head. He wants a match with Kane tonight.
Stephanie reminds Daniel that he attacked Kane first. Kane is on administrative leave for the week and he has a sternly written letter in his file. Daniel wants to know who is doing Stephanie’s performance approval. They appear to be a combination of arrogance and stupidity. Randy tells Daniel to show them some respect. Randy reminds Daniel how great Stephanie and Hunter are. He should be honored to be in the same ring as them.
Daniel says that we know Randy really likes Stephanie. Remember when Randy kissed Stephanie while Hunter was cuffed to the ropes. Hunter says that Stephanie and him have decided that Daniel Bryan will face no one. What is best for business is what is best for Daniel Bryan. In his agitated state, the best thing for Daniel is to give him a well deserved night off. He tells Daniel to enjoy.
Daniel and Hunter argue before Hunter, Stephanie, and Randy leave the ring.
