D-Bry broke up with AJ and yelled at her to get out of his ring!
Cole says that it’s been over six years since Piper’s Pit has been on Smackdown. The last time he was on a woman had a mole bitten off her face (Jillian, but Boogeyman) He didn’t mention that it’s been on RAW much more recently. Piper says he misses the fans. “Rowdy!” chants. He says tonight he has a man Daniel Bryan. Heat for D-Bry. He is a man that lost the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania in 18 seconds, and he blames it on his girlfriend. He has a bit of footage he wants us to see. Play some bongos for these people. Video of D-Bry saying it’s the last kiss he’ll ever get from him and then breaks up with her and yells at her to get out of his ring. He turns his back on her.
Piper announces D-Bry to the ring. D-Bry comes out yelling “YES!” the whole way. Piper doesn’t look impressed. “YES!” from the fans. Piper says D-Bry seems very happy for a man who’s lost the World Heavyweight Championship in 18 seconds. D-Bry says guess what, he just had a meeting with Mr. Laurinaitis and granted his rightful return match. “18 seconds!” chants. D-Bry says this math will prove who the better man is. He wants to pin Sheamus 1-2-3, and make him tap out and can do both as at ER, as it’s a 2 Out of 3 Falls Match, and AJ will be nowhere to be found.
Piper says he doesn’t know if AJ will be at ER, but she’s in the building and he likes her and it’s his show. He introduces AJ who comes out to the ring to her own music. Piper holds the ropes for her. She’s all giddy being on Piper’s Pit. She says hello to D-Bry. Piper is shocked at this. She says she knows how he comes off, but deep down he’s a good person. Piper says this is the Pit, leave PC at the door. This is a guy who in front of the WWE ‘Universe’ dumped you, said you’re dead weight, and her kiss is the kiss of death, come on. AJ says it’s her fault. She says she made a mistake at WrestleMania and is so, so sorry. She knows she can make it up to him.
Piper doesn’t like this. He says he’s been watching her since her debut. He saw Big Show mow her down and she got back up. It’s not easy to be a lady here, so she’s smart. And she’s beautiful. She doesn’t need to make anything up to him. All he’s doing is using her. D-Bry cuts them off. If AJ meant it when she says she loves him, she’d leave this ring right now. Piper tells her she doesn’t need to listen to him.
“AJ!” chants. She thinks about it, but then leaves the ring. D-Bry has a huge smile on his face. D-Bry tries to leave, but Piper isn’t finished with him. Piper sees “YES!” on his t-shirt. Piper has four children, three of them are ladies. Now some no’s! Don’t tell a lady to shut up. That’s a no. You don’t yell at a lady. That’s a no. You don’t use a lady as a protective shield. That’s a coward, and that’s D-Bry. That, also, is a no. The only bright light he sees is that ER Sheamus, the World Heavyweight Champion, because of D-Bry, has a 2 out of 3 falls match. He gets to watch Sheamus kick D-Bry’s head off his shoulders, not once, but twice.
D-Bry says that the fact that he’s better than Sheamus will slap him and everyone else, including Piper right across the face. D-Bry slaps Piper, then quickly flees the ring. Piper can’t grab him before he leaves the ring. “YES!” all the way up the ramp and on the stage.

Damien Sandow talks about sophistication. He embodies all of the qualities. He then talks about social media, which brings upon moral decay and ethical inadequacy. No longer do we read novels, but live by 140 characters or less. He’s our beacon of light.
Cole pokes fun at Booker for not having an ipad, then they go back to Kane’s attack on the Ortons, showing the video recap. Josh says Cowboy has abdominal injuries. Josh goes on to talk about Brock’s return and F5 on Cena.
Video of Laurinaitis bringing Brock out to the ring, then Cena coming down and slapping Brock. The fight that ensued and how the locker room cleared. Cena was bloodied. Later, backstage Cena got in Laurinaitis’ face, then said he wanted to compete, how’s that for legit? Cena faced Otunga, of all people. Cena defeated Otunga, but then took a kick in the slats from behind from Brock.
Okerland doesn’t like their chances tonight. Sheamus is smiling, but must have something up their sleeve. Sheamus says they will lose. So why is Sheamus happy? Sheamus is not going to let Laurinaitis see them sweat, plus he’s tagging with Okerland! If they survive, Sheamus will buy the first round. Okerland says if? Sheamus says they will drink to remember, or drink to forget!
Don’t try this at home!

He came into this industry the most naturally talented athlete to step in a WWE ring since HBK, and what did he want to do? He wanted to poke a bear – Big Show.
