WWE Champion Daniel Bryan makes his way to the ring.
Daniel says last week he came out here and called all of you people sheep. The first thing he wants to do is come out and apologize. Daniel says he wants to apologize to sheep for being compared to you idiots. They are not the ones mindlessly destroying the Earth with their actions. There is no carbon hoofprint. You are not sheep, you are more like parasites.
Daniel calls everyone fickle and says that they are parasites because you take and take and take but give nothing back. Daniel says he is not surprised because you people latched on to the old Daniel Bryan and lived through his success. You lived vicariously through the old Daniel Bryan. Daniel says the old Daniel Bryan is dead and the Yes Movement is Dead. You have moved on to the next fickle field. You are now on the couch in the house that AJ Styles built.
Daniel reminds everyone he is the WWE Champion, not AJ Styles. At TLC on Sunday, he will crush AJ Styles’ dream of becoming WWE Champion again. At the end of the match, the champion will be The New Daniel Bryan. Daniel does not feel that the crowd in Las Vegas believes him. Daniel says he debates this with his friend William Gaddes. Are you stupid or do you deliberately pull the wool over your eyes. He said stupidity is the deliberate cultivation of ignorance. That is pretty much Las Vegas.
Mustafa Ali’s music plays and he comes out. Daniel says he knows who Mustafa is while the idiots might not know who he is.
Daniel invites Mustafa to come into the ring with him. Daniel says that Mustafa is the heart of 205 Live. He is an incredible performer. You are an incredible performer. Daniel says he sees a lot of Mustafa in himself. Daniel says he has some advice. They don’t need this match tonight. After this match, the people will not care because they are so self-absorbed and xenophobic. These fickle people do not deserve this.
Ali wants to know what happened to Daniel because he looks up to Daniel and that is why he became a wrestler. Daniel was the underdog who could hang with anyone because he has heart. What happened? You talk about the old Daniel Bryan. The old Daniel Bryan would want to fight and Mustafa says that is what he wants. He wants a fight.
Daniel asks Ali what kind of car does he drive.
Ali doesn’t know what it has to do with this, but he says he drives an SUV.
Bryan says that Ali is a small little man so why would you need to drive an SUV.
Ali says he has a family.
Daniel slaps Ali and calls him ignorant. Ali with a head scissors and drop kick followed by a senton off the turnbuckles.
