Kane & Daniel Bryan def. The Prime Time Players to become the No. 1 contenders for the WWE Tag Team Championships

Nothing like a little immersion therapy to get the results you want. Dr. Shelby appeared in Montreal, asked by AJ Lee to organize a final, radical attempt at a breakthrough for Kane and Daniel Bryan. It turned out, the two rivals were slated to team up together against The Prime Time Players, with the No. 1 contenders' spot for the WWE Tag Team Titles on the line (AJ Lee justified it to the Players by explaining that Kane & Bryan were the only team they hadn't beaten yet).

The tactic seemed doomed at first, with Kane and Bryan in each other's faces before the match even began. Then, Bryan found himself at the Players' mercy after Titus O'Neil and Darren Young ganged up on the submission technician, roughing him up with a series of powerful team moves and forcing him into a corner where he couldn't reach Kane for the tag. "The Real Deal" stayed on the offense against Bryan, forcing him into the turnbuckle before Bryan rallied with a series of kicks to the big man's midsection.

The rebound was short-lived, though, as Titus continued to hammer away at Bryan with kicks of his own, locking the "No!" man up in a torturous headlock before tagging in Young. Bryan had better luck here, building his strength back up enough to leave Young prone on the mat. Bryan refused to tag in The Devil's Favorite Demon, instead opting to continue the punishment on his own until Kane tagged himself in and planted Young with a Chokeslam, tossing O'Neil over the ropes for good measure.

Before The Big Red Machine could seal the match, though, Bryan tagged himself in, sneering at Kane's frustration and looking to steal the win for himself. Kane, in what can mildly be described as a lapse in his therapeutic recovery, grabbed Bryan, the legal man, by the throat and Chokeslammed him onto the prone Young. With Bryan having tagged in, the referee got down to the mat and counted to three. Progress? Debatable. New No. 1 contenders? Absolutely.
