Daniel Bryan arrived on SmackDown LIVE and still insisted to the WWE Universe that Erick Rowan was his friend. But Rowan was not having it. He wasted no time interrupting and reiterated that he would no longer be disrespected by Bryan. In response, Bryan dared him to do something about.
Bryan’s words, though, quickly turned into a 2-on-1 assault by Rowan and the recently returning Luke Harper, and the two massive Superstars overwhelmed Bryan with a massive barrage.
In response, Roman Reigns made a beeline to the ring to jump into the brawl. The Big Dog emerged to bring the fight right to Harper & Rowan, but the numbers game was too much. Erick & Luke mowed down a sea of security before ripping a ring barrier free and decimating the former Universal Champion with it. They then drove Bryan through the announce table and left the blue brand completely destroyed.
