Daniel Bryan came out to the arena as the fans gave him a standing ovation. Byron Saxton was present inside the ring to interview Bryan. Byron told Bryan that he looked to be in good spirit and that he was back at home where he belonged and he was ready to fight.
Byron said that they were thrilled to have him back, but on that night he was going to face the man who drove him out of action last year. The footage from last year was shown on the big screen where Bryan was destroyed by Kane.
After the footage, Bryan said that he was taking things quite seriously, nobody knew how dangerous Kane was more than he did. He was out for nine months. Bryan reminded that the dou were friends earlier, they were known as ‘Team Hell No,’ and they were tag team champions for nine months. Bryan considered Kane a friend and a brother. But Kane stabbed him and fans on the moment he traded his mask in for a suit. And since that time, he had doctors after doctors telling him he would never wrestle again. But he was back in action, and he did not care whatever the doctors had to say, he knew that he was ready.
Bryan accepted that he was a little bit worried about his neck. He did not know what would happen to him until he fought. But he prove that he was ready for action, and he would prove it by beating Kane on that night and by winning the match against him and in two weeks at the Royal Rumble pay per view event, he would win the Royal Rumble match and in three months at WrestleMania 31, he would win the WWE World Heavyweight championship.
Bryan said that a lot of people thought he could not continue as he used to, but he thought that he could, these people believed that he could do it. He started chanting ‘Yes!’ with the fans.
The Authority (Triple H, Kane, Big Show, Seth Rollins and J & J security) interfered. They did not say anything and just headed towards the ring. Eden Stiles announced the one on one contest between Daniel Bryan and Kane was next. Kane entered the ring for the fight as the rest of the authority members surrounded the ring.
