Kicking off this weeks Smackdown with highlights from TLC the return of the closest thing we’re getting to the old American Dragon in WWE and enter the dragon because he’s here to kick off the show. Bryan gets a huge ovation and looks happy to be here. He says he doesn’t know where he went, but the Fiend ripped off his hair and beard and when he woke up, he realize something was missing but he didn’t mind. But when his daughter saw him, she cried and didn’t know him, she only knew Daniel Bryan the man. But he knew who he saw and he liked it and he came back and kicked Wyatt’s ass. He will prove Bray wrong and will make him feel pain. The Miz arrives and says what happened to him was awful, but Bray attacked his family and he wanted to protect his family. But now he wants to take all Bray has and that’s the title. King Corbin arrives and laughs at Miz and makes fun of him. He then mocks Bryan for looking like baby Yoda. He calls Bryan’s brand failure, and remind us he retired Angle, became king and beat Reigns at TLC. He feels he’s the next inline for a title shot and calls them failures as WWE stars and fathers. Dolph arrives and they attack Miz & Bryan, laying them out.
