The second last episode of the year of SmackDown has some intriguing prospects from the storyline point of view. Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan are at crossroads now with Bryan returning and attacking Wyatt at WWE TLC. Also, there might finally be some significant movement in Sami Zayn’s stable who have been wandering around for the last few months without any clear direction.
They Want Bray Wyatt!
The show opens up with a recap of WWE TLC and how Daniel Bryan’s returned to attack WWE Universal Champion Bray Wyatt. We are live from the arena which is decorated for Christmas. Daniel Bryan makes his way to the ring with a Yes! chant. Bryan takes the mic and says he is not sure where he went a few weeks ago. But he felt that The Fiend ripped out his beard and hair.
When he came to and he got cleaned up, he looked in the mirror and didn’t notice the beard or the hair missing. He only noticed that the Daniel Bryan brand is missing. His brand value was gone but it didn’t feel lacking. But he saw his daughter for the first time without facial hair, she started crying. All she knew was Daniel Bryan- the brand and did not recognize him. Bryan also says the real man he saw in the mirror was the same man who came to TLC and kicked Wyatt’s ass.
Bryan calls Wyatt to the ring but The Miz comes out instead. Miz talks about how Wyatt violated he and his family and TLC was about protecting his family, which is something Wyatt will never have. Baron Corbin makes his way to the ring. He mocks Bryan by saying his daughter was scared when Bryan went home with the new look. He brags about WrestleMania 35, King of the Ring and defeating Roman Reigns on Sunday and wants the title shot.
He tells both Bryan and Miz that they have not only failed as WWE Superstars but also as fathers. Miz and Bryan are pissed off and were about to attack Corbin, but Ziggler attacks them from behind. Corbin and Ziggler take them down quickly. Ziggler places the crown on Corbin’s head as they celebrate for a bit to end the segment.
