Daniel Bryan & Mustafa Ali In-Ring Segment: 

The first thing Bryan wants to do is come out and apologize. He wants to apologize to sheep for being compared to the idiots in the WWE Universe. They are not the ones mindlessly destroying the Earth with their actions.There is no carbon footprint. The fans are not sheep, they’re more like parasites. They’re parasites because they take and take and take, but give nothing back. Bryan is not surprised because you people latched on to the old Daniel Bryan and lived through his success. You lived vicariously through the old Daniel Bryan. The old Daniel Bryan is dead and the Yes Movement is Dead. You have moved on to the next fickle field.

You’re now on the couch in the house that AJ Styles built. Bryan reminds everyone that he is the WWE Champion. At TLC on Sunday, Bryan will crush AJ Styles’ dream of becoming WWE Champion again. At the end of the match, the champion will be The New Daniel Bryan. Bryan doesn’t feel that the crowd in Las Vegas believes him.  Are you stupid or do you deliberately pull the wool over your eyes? Stupidity is the deliberate cultivation of ignorance. That is pretty much Las Vegas. Mustafa Ali comes out to interrupt Bryan. Ali is the heart of 205 Live. He’s an incredible performer. Bryan sees a lot of Ali in himself. Bryan has some advice for Ali.

They don’t need to have this match tonight. After this match, the people will not care because they are so self-absorbed and xenophobic. These fickle people do not deserve this. What happen to the old Daniel Bryan? Bryan is the reason why Ali became a wrestler. Bryan was the underdog who could hang with anyone because he has heart. What happened? The old Daniel Bryan would want to fight and Mustafa says that is what he wants. He wants a fight. What car does Ali drive? Ali doesn’t know what it has to do with this, but he drives an SUV. Ali is a small little man so why would you need to drive an SUV? Ali has a family. Bryan says that Ali is ignorant. Bryan repeatedly slaps Ali in the face. Ali fights back with rapid fire forearm shivers. Ali with a HeadScissors TakeOver. Ali dropkicks Bryan. Ali follows that with a SomerSault Senton to the outside.

The New Day, The Bar and The Usos Rap Battle: 

The Miz & Shane McMahon In-Ring Segment:

Miz is in the ring with the World Cup Trophy. Miz knows that this is Shane’s week with the trophy but he is not giving it back until Shane comes out to hear what he has to say. Miz doesn’t want to beg. Miz will take a knee and he says that this is about life decisions. Why is Miz out here with the trophy? This is the only way that he can talk to Shane. They could be so good together if he gives them a chance. Miz is scared. Shane told him if he interviewed Daniel Bryan, he owes him. Shane never said that.  Miz wants to tag one more time. This thing with the trophy is getting weird. It’s not about the trophy, it’s about so much more. Miz says this won’t be easy to say, but he will say it, no he will show it. Miz wants a referee to come to the ring. So I guess Miz will be tag team partners with Shane again.

Randy Orton & Rey Mysterio In-Ring Segment: 

Orton brings a chair into the ring. There’s nothing like a good old fashioned solid steel chair. Built for comfort, but they have many other uses. They can make a statement or send a message. We see multiple clips of Orton hitting Mysterio with a chair. Mysterio knows that he’s having a chairs match on Sunday and he is okay with that? Mysterio has probably seen what Orton has done to opponents throughout his career.

Mysterio still wants this match? Mysterio must think he is going to get his revenge. He’s a victim. Victims never get revenge. The boys in the locker room will be worried about three letters, TLC, but Mysterio only has to deal with three most destructive letters in sports entertainment, RKO.
