So That Happened: 07/29/13

RAW begins with Mr. McMahon and Brad Maddox walking to the ring.

Mr. McMahon says the WWE Universe is going to have fun tonight, then passes the mic to Brad Maddox who apologizes for letting John Cena choose his opponent at Summerslam. Mr. McMahon reminds Brad Maddox about him calling Daniel Bryan an undersized troll with psychological problems who doesn’t have the aura to be WWE Champion.


Mr. McMahon asks Brad Maddox how he really feels about Daniel Bryan, but Bryan interrupts.

Daniel Bryan takes the mic as Mr. McMahon tries to silent the Daniel Bryan chants. Bryan says with all due respect, those words came out of the mouth of Brad Maddox, but he believes they were dictated by Mr. McMahon. Mr. McMahon calls Daniel Bryan out on having a lack of disrespect for interrupting him, but Bryan tells Mr. McMahon respect is a two way street. Bryan talks about giving everything he had, night after night for the WWE for years, but thinks Mr. McMahon doesn’t give him an ounce of respect.

Mr. McMahon asks Daniel Bryan if he respects John Cena, then asks the WWE Universe to behave themselves since they’re chanting “YES!” Daniel Bryan says he respects John Cena as a human being, a Champion and that he picked him as his opponent at Summerslam.

Mr. McMahon asks Bryan if he would respect Cena if he was lying about all the things he said about Daniel Bryan. McMahon claims John Cena is lying through his teeth and that Cena is a master manipulator who is making Daniel Bryan look foolish.

Mr. McMahon asks Daniel Bryan and the WWE Universe if they’re fools, then tells Bryan that Cena also knows that Daniel Bryan can’t beat him. Mr. McMahon thinks that Daniel Bryan can’t even beat Kane because Bryan doesn’t have that intangible quality or Ruthless Aggression. Mr. McMahon tells Daniel Bryan that John Cena also lost his Ruthless Aggression, and that he’s ripe for the picking, but doesn’t think Daniel Bryan can beat Cena at Summerslam.

Mr. McMahon says even though he doesn’t want Daniel Bryan to win, he doesn’t want John Cena to win either. McMahon claims Cena walks around like he’s better than him and that he owns the place. McMahon says he doesn’t want a half-pint troll like Daniel Bryan, who is an embarrassment to the company, to win either. Mr. McMahon says that the person he wants to win at Summerslam is himself. McMahon bends down to get on “Daniel Bryan’s level,” then tells his theory of what he wants to happen at Summerslam. He wants Daniel Bryan and John Cena to lock up then spontaneously combust.

Daniel Bryan says that if John Cena is lying, he will have hell to pay. Bryan is about to tells Mr. McMahon what he likes about him, but decides to get on “McMahon’s Level” by standing on his tip-toes. Mr. McMahon tries to stand on his tip-toes as well, but quickly gives up.

Daniel Bryan tells Mr. McMahon that McMahon is always honest with him and what he really thinks, but it doesn’t matter what Mr. McMahon thinks. It matters what the WWE Universe thinks. After the “YES!” chants, Bryan says it sounds like the WWE Universe wants a new WWE Champion and his name is Daniel Bryan. Bryan tells McMahon to listen to the WWE Universe, then asks if they want a new WWE Champion. Loud “YES!” chants are heard as Daniel Bryan joins in with the WWE Universe. Mr. McMahon looks dumbfounded.
