The majority of the crowd at the IZOD Center backed the WWE Champion, though it was clear from the get-go that there was plenty of love for Bryan as well, as a swarm of "Yes!" signs greeted the submission specialist as he made his emphatic entrance. It didn't take long for Kane to silence the passionate fans, punishing both Punk and Bryan before attempting a double chokeslam. Both competitors opted to team up to escape punishment and took The Big Red Monster's legs out from under him.

Risk-taking quickly became a trend in the early going, with Bryan hitting a dive through the ropes on Kane, and Punk following with a high-flying crossbody onto both Superstars on the outside. Bryan's attempt to go high risk again was thwarted when Kane caught him with a strike to the throat, taking Bryan out of the match for a stretch while The Devil's Favorite Demon went to work on Punk's injured ribs. Using the steel ring post and a constrictive leg scissors, Kane wore down the WWE Champion and seemed to take the edge in the matchup.
