Winner and NEW WWE World Heavyweight Champion – Daniel Bryan
BP: Excellent ending to an emotional and exciting night. Suprised Batista was the one who tapped but it was a very good match. Even with the Authority interference, Bryan fought them off and overcame everything. Hats off to everyone involved. Vicious looking spot with the powerbomb/neckbreaker on the table too.
