Mark Henry comes out using a crutch to walk and takes a microphone and says they all sound like they are happy he is in pain. He says Big Show did this to him and says this is not how you treat a champion and he may be hurt, but he is still standing there. Henry says the fans all wish they could have done this, and he kicked Show in the knee, but he acted like it was a low blow because he wanted Henry to look bad. He says he is there for the kids and he wants to show that a champion fights through pain and injury, and he wants to compete but he wasn't cleared. Henry says he is not the strongest, but he is standing there as the world's toughest man and the World Heavyweight Champion.
Big Show comes out and says Henry knew the title wouldn't change, so he wants Henry to stop lying because he knew he would get disqualified. Show says Henry felt the grasp on his title slipping away, and he just returned the favor when he hurt his knee, but it will be different next time. Henry says there won't be a next time because he is the world's largest loser, and he goes to leave and Show knocks him out with the WMD punch. Daniel Bryan runs out with a ref and cashes in, then rolls over Henry and covers him to win the title!
Bryan has his arm raised and celebrates with the title on the turnbuckles, then goes to the announcer's table and rubs it in Michael Cole's face. He jumps on the table and raises his arms, then gets back in the ring as Teddy Long runs out and tells him to wait because Mark Henry was not medically cleared to compete. Teddy says they never had an official match so Bryan is not the champion, and he says he is sorry and asks for him to hand over the title. He says he is just following the rules, but Teddy says he can give back the briefcase since it was not an official cash in and he can give him another title opportunity tonight. He says Bryan will be in the main event match, and the winner of that match will face Henry for the title on next Tuesday's live Smackdown, then leaves as Henry watches from the entrance ramp.
