Bray Wyatt and John Cena's feud continues with an incredible promo in the ring from Wyatt. He talks about how he is going to change the world and save the people. Wyatt also talks about how John Cena is going to be alone and that he is doing it for the fans, all of them. Wyatt ends the segment singing and we head to break.
This is the best way to utilize John Cena right now. Bray Wyatt continues to add new layers and new content to his character. It is very telling when Bray Wyatt is able to say the same thing over and over, yet making it fresh and new. What is next? Payback should feature a "Last Man Standing" or "I Quit Match." I just fear that WWE will give Cena the third win in this feud.
Daniel Bryan picks up a win over Alberto Del Rio, but this was only a small piece of his night. Kane seemed to stalk Bryan and Brie Bella throughout the show, while Stephanie McMahon acted like she had no idea. The final piece of the puzzle is in place when Kane is in the car when they are trying to leave. Daniel Bryan tries to fight him off and does. Kane lays on the road and looks to be out cold. He gets up and tries to stop Bryan from driving away. Instead, Bryan and Brie are able to get away.
Well, I am not sure what to feel about this. I am unbiased because I do not see Daniel Bryan vs. Kane being a feud that continues to propel Daniel Bryan's career. He needs the biggest and best guys to work with to feel like an important champion. Does anyone really care that he is fighting Kane AGAIN in a few weeks? It could be a Hell in a Cell or even a Buried Alive Match, but I really do not feel the level of importance. Maybe it is because nobody sees Kane as a world champion again. Maybe it could be because the feud is trying to focus on Brie more than Bryan. Either way, WWE needs to be careful with this feud, not making it similar to many that we have seen over the past handful of years that involve women.
Bad News Barrett defeated Big E
This was a solid match once again. It felt very similar in terms of booking. Big E started in control until Barrett overcame the strong offense. Barrett reversed a few moves and Big E hit a beautiful spear that sent both men to the outside. Barrett raked the eyes of Big E and hit a Bullhammer for the win.
It was a cheap win and a great way for Bad News to pick up a scrappy win. This is what I want from him: Have a new fresh face challenge him for that championship. I do not want "new" meaning a rookie. I want a veteran guy that can help Barrett get to a main event level. So, @JoshIsenberg4 for your opinions. Either way, this is the best work, as a persona, that Barrett has had since Nexus.
