Daniel Bryan vs. Ryback
When Daniel Bryan promises to beat the respect out of someone, he will be beating the respect out of someone. Despite Ryback’s earlier assertion that he’d wipe the floor with the submission expert, their impromptu matchup left the “Human Wrecking Ball” so stunned he willingly ate a disqualification loss.

In some ways, Ryback was lucky to even make it to the bout’s finale. Bryan dug deep into his arsenal of submissions, targeting Ryback’s legs in an attack that left the No. 1 contender to the WWE Title literally stumbling around the ring in agony.
But before the “Human Wrecking Ball” could send the “No!” man the way of Kofi Kingston, WWE Champion John Cena came to Bryan’s aid in a standoff that was mitigated by the arrival of Curtis Axel, whose own match against Cena was about to begin.

"Chekhov's Table" struck and Curtis Axel’s winning streak continued in the finale of Raw when the third-generation prodigy clashed with the WWE Champion in a McMahon-mandated No Disqualification Match, riding an unlikely assist to another controversial victory. While Paul Heyman’s newest prospect may be a Superstar of few words, he proved himself to be a competitor of considerable brutality, swinging a steel chair and showing shades of his father and grandfather in a strong, veteran-level effort against the Cenation leader.
A comeback from Cena nearly left Axel in splinters when he hoisted the Heyman Guy up for the Attitude Adjustment and made for one of Ryback’s leftover tables, but a timely interference by Ryback himself liberated Axel from The Champ’s clutches. Ryback made his second statement of the night, plowing Cena through the pine while Axel scrambled back to the ring to beat the ten-count. Heyman Guy, 3; future WWE Hall of Famers, 0.
