Punk will face Axel tonight. Bryan went for his corporate makeover, what happened?
Music and pyro.
In Ring Segment
Steph – Welcome to Monday Night RAW. It’s no secret that my dad doesn’t believe that Bryan is Championship material. I know a lot of you disagree, as does Trip. I came up with a compromise to make his look more palatable. I asked Bryan to have a makeover and he agreed. Let’s take a look.
video of Bryan getting a facial, mani/pedi, then working out. His hair was slicked back into a ponytail. He went out for a steak! He took a bite, chewed and dealt with it. Then he went to get measured for a suit.
“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”
Steph – Ladies and gentlemen, Daniel Bryan!
Bryan out to the ring in a suit, hair slicked to a ponytail. Blue suit, blue shirt with white collar, yellow and blue striped tie.
Steph – Sharp. Very sharp. The floor is yours. (Steph touches Bryan’s arm kindly, then his shoulder before stepping away.)
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Bryan – You guys like it that much, right?
“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”
Bryan – You don’t like it?
Bryan – I’d like to that Steph for all the time and effort she put into all of this, right. It’s funny, I don’t think this is what the company actually wants. Seems to me they want someone who’s jacked up in cargo shirts and a bright yellow t-shirt. Someone who can sell you all stuff you don’t need. Who could that be? Seems to be they want someone like Cena.
Bryan – I respect Cena because he picked me because he thinks I’m the best contender, but he doesn’t think I can beat him. Why could I beat him? He’s a Superstar! He’s in movies. He’s on cereal boxes. Look at me, I’m 5’8″, this scraggly beard, from the middle of nowhere. How could someone as lowly as me beat a Superstar like Cena who’s been king of the mountain for ten years. I’ll tell you why – Cena’s an entertainer, and Bryan is a wrestler!
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Bryan – See, while he’s been up here in sold out arenas, he hasn’t seen the holds I’ve dragged myself out of, the mud I’ve crawled out of, because I am a wrestler! Here’s the funny thing he doesn’t like to admit. If Cena gets fired tomorrow, he goes back to his mansion, his 20 cars and his multimillion dollar lifestyle, and he will never wrestle again. If I get fired tomorrow, and I just might, it’s happened before, you will see me in every armory, gym, every little dirt box with 30 people and a wrestling ring, because I love wrestling! That’s funny, it kind of seems to me that you people like wrestling too.
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Bryan – So here’s the deal. I’ll dress in this suit for now. I’ll comb my hair back, for now. I’ll do what they want, for now. Because at SummerSlam I’m going to do what everyone here wants me to do, and I’m going to make Cena tap out! “YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
McMahon’s music hits and out he comes in a gray suit, light peach shirt, mauve, maroon, gray tie with a blue knot.
McMahon – I’m just messing with you. I appreciate Steph’s efforts to fix the issues between Trip and I where it pertains to you. And look at you, you gave it the old college try. Your pants are too short, brown shoes, blue suit. Got your little ponytail pulled back, you just need a little pink bow back there or something. Just messing with you. I’ve said before that I don’t want Cena to be Champ, but I want you to be Champ even less. It’s the way I feel. I’m kind of warming up to you. What if we had Bryan as WWE Champ. The WWE has never had a dwarf as WWE Champ. You’re lying, you’re not 5’8″, you’re 5’5″! We’ve never had anyone with the muscularity of a toothpick. Never had anyone who had a face like a gargoyle. Someone so unkempt, you look like a miniature Mick Foley. Even though I don’t want you to be Champ, you’re giving your all, you could be Champ. If you listen to me, you could be Champ. There’s just one other thing for this makeover, that thing on your face. You got a bird’s nest in there? Smells like a compost pile. If you want my influential support, there’s one thing to do right here, right now, shave that beard off. Gentlemen, bring down that chair! Bring it down. Make it a nice one. Look at that!
“NO!” “NO!” “NO!” (Bryan just moved his arms and the fans chanted.)
McMahon – These people who want you to be Champ have no idea what they really want. They want you to sit in that chair Bryan, they want you to go all the way. If you want to be WWE Champ, then you will do as I say. You talk about being fired, be careful what you ask for. It doesn’t hurt to get your beard shaved off. You won’t cry. You really want to be WWE Champ, then take that first step. You want to be the wrestler, WWE Champ Bryan, get in that chair!
Bryan steps toward the chair and the “NO!” “NO!” “NO!” chants start. He leaves the ring and steps down by the chair.
McMahon – The only thing missing is the barber, someone who keeps his beard clean, like Barrett. Come on out Barrett.
Bryan removes his jacket and sits in the chair as Barrett comes out with the clippers and a huge smile.
McMahon – Bryan, you want to be WWE Champ more than anything, don’t you? Wade’s grandfather used to be a barber, or what they call it in the UK.
“NO!” “NO!” “NO!”
Bryan (off mic) – If you could leave this little bit right here.
Barrett leans in and takes a head butt for it. Bryan then grabs the clippers and shaves off half of Barrett’s beard! More abuse on Barrett and over the barricade. Bryan up the ramp and grabs a mic.
Bryan – You want me to change? You want me to change? I say “NO!” I am going to be who I’ve always been, and I’m going to be WWE Champ! (Off comes Bryan’s tie, then his shirt to show it’s like Cena’s except it says, ‘The beard is here!’ with an arrow pointing up.) Cena says, the Champ is here. Guess what, the beard it here!

Back into the ring ADR grabs his belt and poses in the corner. Ricardo doesn’t move a muscle outside the ring. Video recap of the attack on Ricardo!
In Ring Segment
Cody in the ring, in a suit, vest, sans tie.
Cody – There’s an Oscar Wilde quote that true friends stab you in the front, so Damien wasn’t a true friend judging by last week’s Smackdown. It’s all water under the bridge, and I have a gift for Sandow. Before that, let’s look at all that happened. (There’s a briefcase sized box on the mat, and it appears to be leaking.)
Video recap of the growing feud between Cody and Damien.
Cody – I know how much it’s effected Damien watching his case sink into the Gulf. (Cody pulls out the case all wet and full of weeds.) It’s a bit wet, but come and get it.

In Ring Segment
Cena to the ring, wearing his yellow shirt and cargo shorts.
Cena – It’s that time again.
Cena – All this is very familiar. I’m used to being the target. Usually the chasers are bad people, and that’s easy. Sometimes I have to face a true fan favorite like Bryan. It forces the ‘Universe’ to choose, and a lot of you choose Bryan.
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Cena – The WWE brass doesn’t like it, but I chose him. I heard Bryan and there was a lot of truth, but also a lot of ignorance. Bryan judges me for how dress and live my life. That doesn’t make you new, it makes you like The Rock, Punk and all the rest who do the same thing! I got news for you, you won’t be the last. I don’t change for you, for no one. Always have been me, always will be me. Bryan wants to talk about hard times. I’ll tell you hard times, I came back 24 hours after breaking my neck, my elbow looks like a football, I’m still here. He wants to glorify wrestling in a gym, that’s where you’re most comfortable and would much rather be! I gave him a chance to talk, it’s my turn. I been here 12 years, if I get fired tomorrow, I’ll never wrestle another match again, but that’s because I love the WWE and would never tarnish wearing this belt. Bryan glorifying wrestling everywhere else is like saying I was great in the arena football league! The WWE is the NFL. Not For Long if you keep glorifying your past and not looking in front of you. When I glorify it’s in this ring with all of this! Bryan says I can’t wrestle!
Many fans yell smack and agreements to this.
Cena – Once again Bryan, very original. Millions of people say that, they’re chanting it right now. (The chant doesn’t work.) For those of you who can’t hear, they’re chanting, ‘You can’t wrestle’ and it’s aimed at me. I’ve held this belt 11 times in some of the biggest matches in history. Been toe to toe with the greatest and walked out with my head held high! I’ve been lucky 11 times. Underestimate me like these people and thousands before who underestimate me, when they leave this company…
“Boring!” chants can be heard loud and clear! Cena stops and lets them chant, even holds out the mic for them and nods.
Cena – Sounds like the people want to see myself and Bryan fight right now.
“YES!” “YES!” “YES!”
Cena – You see, you’re as excited for SummerSlam as I am because Bryan doesn’t understand what an opportunity it is for him. If he wins it, it’s great, but if he loses it, the next day he has to look in the mirror and admit he wasn’t that good. Bryan, you’re in a hot streak, but I’ve been mowing people down since January. At SummerSlam you can chant for who you want, I’ve always lived and died by that, just remember what I’ve been saying for six months, our time is now, and the Champ is here.
Orton’s music hits. Orton comes out, case in hand.
Orton – John, you never cease to amaze me, always aware of the target on your back, but never fully aware of the target staring you in the face. It doesn’t matter who walks out of SummerSlam with the WWE Title, what matters is what’s in this case, the contract that guarantees that I’m WWE Champion. It could happen at SummerSlam, it could happen the night after, at WrestleMania, the point I’m making here, is that the Champ is here. (pointing to himself)
The Shield’s music hits. Orton and Cena ready themselves for Rollins, Reigns and Ambrose. They come down and surround the ring. Slowly onto the apron, then Bryan rushes the ring to even the numbers. “YES!” “YES!” “YES!” from the fans. Cena looks shocked.
Maddox – Gentlemen, take a deep breath. I see what’s going on here. Since no one gets along here, why not a 6 Man Tag Match for the main event?
Cena, Orton and Bryan all look at each other in the ring.
Tons of Funk vs The Wyatt Family
Funkasaurus, Sweet T and the Dactyls in the ring dancing, but then The Wyatt Family’s entrance cuts them off. They come out, Bray sits in his chair, then fakes blowing out his lantern.

Winner – The Wyatt Family (1:19)
Bray into the ring, holds onto the corner and back bends while yelling ‘Follow the Buzzards!’ Sister Abibgail on Clay, kiss and all.
Bray – Devil’s Favorite Demon is an illusion! It’s a fairy tale. The demon is a lie. Me, I’m much different man. I’m the man of a thousand truths. I Bray Wyatt, the eater of worlds! And I am forever, Kane, follow the buzzards.
The lights go out! Fire erupts! Kane is on the tron as Bray looks shaken in the ring.
Kane – When you pull the wings off from buzzards for fun, they’re impossible to follow, Bray. I don’t condemn your intentions, but I do see through your haze of cryptic words. You’re here to maim, disfigure and mutilate everyone who crosses your path. I like that. I do the same things too, but I don’t do them to spread a message, I do them for my own personal amusement. (pop) At SummerSlam, you’ll find out why I am The Devil’s Favorite Demon, because no one does the Devil’s work better than I do, and at SummerSlam, you’ll see the reason why your family won’t be able to save you. No one is going to be able to save you from inside a ring of fire!
Kane calls fire from all four. Rowan and Harper jump and freak, but Bray drops to his knees throws his arms out and laughs.
Recap of Punk being attacked by Brock three weeks ago, then last week Punk attacked Axel before going after Heyman. Heyman was able to flee.
Josh – I’d love to get your thoughts on facing Axel tonight.
Punk – I’d like to talk about his father. His father is someone I had a lot of admiration for, and his manager, Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan. Except when Mr. Perfect and Heenan were on camera together, Mr. Perfect still had a brain, that’s not what his son Axel has decided to do. He’s got so much blind loyalty to Heyman that it will get him a beating tonight, at my hands. There’s been plenty of times that Heyman’s mouth as gotten me into fights that I didn’t really want. That’s no longer my problem. I’m going to take out Axel, then I’m going to do what I said I’m going to do, and take out Heyman. I’m not a liar, unlike Heyman, when I say I’m coming for you, then I’m coming for you.
Josh – That leads to my next question. In your match at SummerSlam agains Brock.
Punk – The Best vs The Beast. SummerSlam will forever be known as the night The Beast to neutered. Brock loses a match and Heyman loses everything.

Trip – What’s wrong.

Trip – Just calm down. Your Dad’s lost it. No one wants to say it, everyone wants to beat around the bush, but the fact is, he’s lost it. The creative genius Vince McMahon is finally gone. He just runs around here every week doing whatever he feels like. His whims, whatever he wants. Enough. Because Bryan embarrassed him because Bryan wouldn’t shave his beard off? He’s going to throw away SummerSlam over this? He doesn’t want Cena, but he’s going to hurt everything because of Bryan? He’s throwing away SummerSlam over all this? I’m tired of it. I’m tired of this whole damn thing, and I’m not going to watch this ship go down because of him! (pop) I don’t know what he’s going to do at SummerSlam, but I’m going to stop him. Watch me Steph, I’m going to stop him!
Trip leaves and Steph looks like she’s in shock.
