Kane and Daniel Bryan attempted to "hug it out;" failed miserably

PHOTOS VIDEO

Ask the WWE Universe and you shall receive. When asked to tweet how they wanted the Kane/Daniel Bryan situation to be handled on Raw, they responded, overwhelmingly (55 percent of them to be exact) that they wanted the two furious rivals to suck it up and, in the words of Ari Gold, "hug it out."

With the Chicago crowd bellowing for the two opponents to "HUG IT OUT!" Kane and Bryan made several awkward passes at a brotherly embrace before Bryan fired the first friendly salvo: an awkward attempt at a bro chest bump. No dice. The WWE Universe (as well as the official referee for the hug) was not appeased. Kane's effort at a hug proved similarly fruitless, but it was Bryan who finally locked Kane in the Twitter-mandated embrace.

The hug was not returned.

After the official ruled it was not a true hug unless Kane reciprocated, The Devil's Favorite Demon reached within himself and gave Bryan some love of his own.

The hug was not returned.

With the WWE Universe riled up, the two competitors circled each other like true ring warriors, sizing each other up, waiting, waiting, until ... success!

The two brought it in for the real deal and locked in the bro-est of bro hugs, soaking in the moment while the WWE Universe cheered them on. That is, until they started with friendly slaps on the shoulder that were a bit too hard for each other's liking. Soon, what began as chummy slaps turned into an all-out brawl, and even that took a turn for the worst when Kane attempted to trap Bryan's head in the folds of a steel chair. The swarm of referees that circled The Big Red Monster proved enough of a distraction for Bryan to clobber Kane with the chair and hightail it out of the ring while Kane stewed in fury.

Well, therapy is a process. Perhaps next week will be better (WATCH: BRYAN ON HUGS)
