Daniel Bryan & R-Truth In-Ring Segment: 

Bryan is walking around the concourse of the Veterans Memorial Arena. AJ Styles would be out here with the people. Bryan is here to take Styles on an educational journey. This is a ‘concession stand’, but the only concessions being made are to your health. You at the people around you. Are you happy and healthy? How do you feel after eating this garbage. You eat this because you are filling a void. You shove candy and popcorn down your throat. That is why you cheer for AJ Styles. You cheer for him to fill a void in your lives. Styles is like this hot dog as he takes it out of a fan’s hand.

It is toxic, just like the people who chant for him. Bryan throws the hot dog back to the fan. They take a large cup of high fructose syrup and you drink it with a plastic straw. Bryan throws the drink at the fan and calls him fickle. He asks the merchandise stand employee for a Yes Movement T-Shirt but there aren’t any because the Yes Movement is Dead. Bryan doesn’t want to pollute this world with this merchandise.  Look at the AJ Styles shirts and gloves. It makes it look like he actually cares. It is just useless plastic garbage.

Bryan is trying to make this world a better place. In order to get change, you need to change. These people are weak, submissive, and impotent.  These people reek and are submissive. Bryan is changing the planet one person at a time. Don’t forget now, he’s the WWE Champion. Styles fills a void for 30 seconds. He will tear apart that void and fill it with something meaningful and valuable. Bryan will build this world with something these children can be proud of. You boo him but he is changing the planet for the better while you change it for the worse. R-Truth attacks Bryan from behind before their match.
