Tensions boiled over between Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton

DAYTON, OH – SmackDown sizzled in the wake of WWE Payback, featuring World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio against Chris Jericho, a tough-as-nails Intercontinental Championship Rematch and a personal showdown for respect between The Viper and WWE’s submission specialist.



Still frustrated that his match against Randy Orton was stopped on RawDaniel Bryan expressed his belief that the WWE officials responsible did so not because of injury, but because they felt he was the “weak link.” Still, he placed the greatest blame on Orton himself, believing that WWE’s Apex Predator had pitied him like a “little dog.”

The Viper emerged to make it clear that their match had been stopped because people were worried about Bryan’s safety. He explained that he hadn’t pitied the submission specialist, but respected him for how hard he fought.

When Bryan made it clear that he would shove the “respect” that the nine-time World Champion claimed to have for him down his throat in their SmackDown main event match, the fed-up Orton said he would hurt his opponent so bad that he would have to be carried out.
