It’s time for the official contract signing. Triple H and Stephanie are in the ring with a table and two chairs. Orton is out first, followed by Bryan. Triple H then introduces the special guest referee for their match, Shawn Michaels. HBK comes out to a big entrance with pyro. He gets in the ring, runs around and jokes with Triple H. All smiles from everybody but Orton so far. Orton is given the chance to sign first. Orton says he owes Daniel Bryan a lot of credit. He keeps getting back up. After this Sunday, he won’t be getting right back up. He’s survived against The Undertaker in Hell in a Cell. He’s beaten Sheamus & John Cena in that cell. Bryan has no idea what he’s getting into. Bryan’s first Hell in a Cell will be his last. Orton signs the contract, stares Bryan down and passes the contract to him.
Bryan says if it wasn’t for Triple H and the Shield, he’d be WWE Champion. He’s more than capable of smashing in the so called “Face of WWE.” He has 2 words for Randy Orton – Thank you. He thanks him for pushing him to be more than a B+ player, thank you for showing Triple H & Stephanie to be the narcissistic spoiled brats that they are. Triple H says he’s seen guys like Bryan a hundred times. Jericho, Edge, RVD. Popular guys, but never “The One.” Nobody wants to say it, but it needs to be said – if any of those guys had been the face of WWE, we’d all be working for Ted Turner right now. When he gets into Hell in a Cell, he’s going to show the world he’s a B+ player.
He tells Triple H he should trade in his suit for wrestling gear so he can show him in the ring. Triple H says if he wrestles again, it’s going to be to fight a star. Undertaker. The Rock. Brock Lesnar. It sure as hell won’t be Daniel Bryan. He fights A+ player. They want to fight stars and none of them would waste their time fighting him. Shawn Michaels should have never wasted his time training him. Michaels says he didn’t waste his time – Daniel Bryan’s very good. HBK asks Triple H what happened to him? What happened the guy who drove the tank into WCW? The guy who came out on live TV and played strip poker with him. What happened to that Triple H? He doesn’t care that Triple H is the COO. He doesn’t care that he trained Daniel Bryan. HBK cares about the fact that the people voted for him to be the guest referee. Orton says Michaels has an agenda against him. Triple H says no – at the end of the day, Shawn will do what’s right. Michaels agrees – he’s going to do what’s right for the business he loves. He questions what Triple H has against Daniel Bryan. Michaels says – after everything Triple H has thrown at Daniel Bryan – Triple H is mad because Daniel Bryan has proven him wrong.
As Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton are going face to face, a truck is shown pulling into the arena. It’s driven by Big Show. Big Show drives all around the building into the arena. He gets out of the truck and signals for Randy Orton to turn around. Orton does and gets caught with a flying knee to the face by Daniel Bryan. Bryan celebrates with the Yes! chant and then walks over to the Big Show on the truck and the two of them do the Yes! chant with the crowd to end the show. The crowd was very into the final “go home” segment.
