Vickie Guerrero and Kaitlyn come out and says there was a blemish in Smackdown’s perfect night, and Dolph was cheated last night. She says Dolph will embarass Daniel Bryan tonight and introduces him as the three walk to the ring. CM Punk interrupts before the match starts and makes his way down the ramp and over to commentary.
Dolph Ziggler vs Daniel Bryan
Bryan hits a shoulder block then stomps Dolph and puts him in a surfboard and Dolph starts screaming until he gets out. Dolph gets a quick rollup and then runs into a dropkick by Bryan, and gets bodyscissored through the ropes. Bryan runs the ropes and hits a big suicide dive onto the floor and pumps up the crowd as Vickie yells at him. They get back in the ring and start slugging it out before Bryan knocks Dolph down with a clothesline and a running dropkick in the corner. Dolph begs him off but Bryan repeatedly kick him in the corner then kicks him in the head for a two count.
Bryan attempts the LeBell Lock, but Dolph gets to the ropes, then reverses a Bryan hurricanrana into a a rollup for two. Dolph hits a superkick for two, then misses a Zig Zag and the two trade a few pin attempts. Dolph continues the offense and throws him into the corner and hits a belly to back release throw, then applies the Sleeper Hold. Bryan reverses it into the LeBell Lock and Vickie tries to pull Dolph foot under the rope but Dolph taps out and the ref doesn’t see it. CM Punk stands up after the match and Bryan stares him down, then turns around and foils an attempted attack by Dolph, and turns his attention back to Punk.
Winner – Daniel Bryan
(I never saw CM Punk commentate on NXT, but he was great tonight. I hope he gets more mic time, whether it is a promo or scouting matches like he did tonight. If he can be half as funny as his Tweets, and they give him enough time, his segments would probably be some of the highest rated. Oh, btw who else can’t wait for a Punk/Bryan feud?)
