So That Happened: 08/26/13

RAW begins with The Shield standing in front of the ring.

Triple H comes out to his King Of Kings music.

Triple H reminds us of what happened to Daniel Bryan at Summerslam, calling it the dawning of a new era. After replaying the footage of Daniel Bryan getting screwed, Triple H says that was best for business and there was nothing personal about the attack. Triple H shows the footage of Daniel Bryan’s attack from last week’s RAW and admits that his attack was personal.

Triple H says the reason he embarrassed and humiliated Daniel Bryan was because of Bryan’s actions. Triple H says every action has a consequence and Bryan made it personal by insulting his wife, his family and him. Triple H claims he’s willing to be the bigger man and move on and wants to be a business man with Daniel Bryan and the choice is Bryan’s.

Triple H segways from business to ratings claiming that they went through the roof and that business is booming because of the new face of the WWE, Randy Orton. Triple H asks the WWE Universe to show respect as he brings out their champion and future, Randy Orton.

Triple H congratulates Randy Orton for breathing new life into the WWE and the WWE Championship. Triple H says as COO, he likes to award people who excel and are not afraid to grab the brass ring and run with it. Triple H tells Randy Orton that he got him a gift and paid for it out of his own pocket.

Triple H tells Randy Orton he wants to show how much Orton means to him and brings out Orton’s gift: A brand new Cadillac Escalade.

Randy Orton thanks Triple H for the Escalade and for having the vision and business acumen of realizing that Orton is the only man worthy of being WWE Champion and Face Of The Company. Triple H tells Randy Orton to test out the car, but they’re interrupted by Daniel Bryan’s music. Daniel Bryan comes out and starts a “YES!” chant on the ramp.

Daniel Bryan “compliments” Randy Orton’s “sweet ride” and says it’s way nicer than his Honda Fit. Bryan d says since Orton is making Thank Yous, he’s has a few Thank Yous of his own that he would like to make. First, Daniel Bryan thanks each and every person in Phoenix and the WWE Universe because he’s not the biggest, the strongest or the prettiest, then mentions that “Twinkle Toes Orton” is the prettiest. Bryan says despite not being any of those things, the people have believed and supported him and we have no idea how much that means to him.

Next, Daniel Bryan thanks John Cena for allowing him the opportunity to be in the Main Event at Summerslam because a guy like Triple H would have never given that opportunity.

Daniel Bryan thanks Triple H for ending his charade and finally showing his true colors at Summerslam. Bryan thanks Triple H for proving that his view of what’s “best for business” is just as narrow-minded and misguided as Mr. McMahon’s. Bryan mocks Triple H for going from a rebel in the leather jack to a sellout in a suit. Randy Orton defends Triple H and demands that “Dan” show respect to the COO and Face of the WWE.

Daniel Bryan mocks Randy Orton’s role as the Face Of The WWE then tells Orton that at Night Of Champions, not only will Orton’s face be re-arranged, but Triple H’s vision of the future will be re-arranged as well because Bryan will become the new “WWE Champion.” After a “YES!” chant, Triple H calls Bryan’s “fantasy” adorable then calls him Jiminy Cricket. And if that wasn’t enough, Triple H starts by singing “When You Wish Upon A Star” to Bryan.

Triple H tells Daniel Bryan that in the real world, it makes a difference who you are. Triple H says Daniel Bryan is not an A Player and that Randy Orton is an A player. Triple H calls Daniel Bryan a B then gives him an opportunity to prove himself to the world. Triple H puts Daniel Bryan in a gauntlet match against Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and then “The Gift Of Roman Reigns.”

Triple H tells Daniel Bryan that he’s going to give Bryan the gift of The Shield in a Gauntlet Match because he believes in Daniel Bryan and he believes that this is what is best for business.
