Daniel Bryan def. Luke Harper
Two days before he and CM Punk take on The Wyatt Family’s Luke Harper & Erick Rowan at Survivor Series, The Beard went one-on-one against Harper in SmackDown’s main event – and by one-on-one, we mean that Bray Wyatt and Rowan were lurking in close proximity to the ring.
However, when The Eater of Worlds’ distraction allowed Harper to regain his advantage over Bryan in the final moments of the match, Punk emerged. His distraction proved to be even more effective, kicking up the dust enough for The Beard to pick up the quick pin on his opponent.
But, after the bell rang, The Wyatt Family would make both former World Champions pay for their actions, hitting Punk with a wicked clothesline and Bryan with Sister Abigail and leaving their Survivor Series opponents in a heap in the middle of the ring.
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.
