Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, The Usos & WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Goldust def. The Shield & The Wyatt Family

Chaos erupted between The Shield, The Wyatt Family, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, The Usos & The Rhodes Brothers last week, and the 12 Superstars found a way to exorcise their frustration in Raw Country’s epic conclusion. Separated into teams of six, the dozen got down and dirty in a 12-Man Tag Team Match that saw the fan favorites fall to a late disadvantage until a surprise Superstar came to save the day. Dissent between The Shield and The Wyatts nearly threatened to destroy their efforts until Bray Wyatt himself mended the fences, uniting his teammates against Bryan for a plus-sized numbers game.

It took a last-ditch tag to Punk by Bryan to re-ignite his team and The Second City Saint shouldered the burden well, cleaning house and dispatching Dean Ambrose with a Go to Sleep after an epic melee ensued. The victory had only just been counted when The Real Americans joined in for a piece of the action and sent Punk, Bryan & Co. into defense mode … at which point Rey Mysterio stormed into the ring and struck Jack Swagger and Luke Harper with a double 619. The mask, as they say, is back.

CM Punk & Daniel Bryan vs. Ryback & Curtis Axel ended in a No Contest

Ready to battle Luke Harper & Erick Rowan at Survivor Series – a pay-per-view match announced on WWE.com earlier this week – CM Punk & Daniel Bryan teamed up for the first time ever on the blue brand to take on Ryback & Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel.

But just when Bryan snapped The Human Wrecking Ball into the “YES!” Lock, the lights suddenly went out and the horrifying tone of the Wyatts’s entrance theme echoed through Manchester. When the lights returned, The Wyatt Family appeared to spoil the party. While they were in the ring, however, Punk and Bryan were both gone!

Meanwhile, as Axel tried to revive Ryback, the disoriented Big Guy pushed his partner into the creepy faction, leading Harper and Rowan to attack the titleholder and The Human Wrecking Ball. But, after they exiled their prey from the ring, “The Beard with The Best” suddenly reappeared from hiding and scored a hit-and-run attack on their pay-per-view opponents.
