Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass
I really didn’t think this program necessitated two pay-per-view matches in a row but much like the first matchup I discussed, here we are. And much like the Lashley vs. Zayn match, Big Cass was originally upset that the announcement of Daniel Bryan’s return to in-ring action after a long hiatus came on the same day that he was cleared to return after that nasty leg injury he suffered last year, which led to their match at Backlash. Bryan won that first-time encounter by making Cass tap out in a much shorter match than I expected so the seven-footer is now looking for revenge on that.
I thought this whole thing might get scrapped when Big Cass got injured (or put on punishment for that segment with the little Daniel Bryan…whichever you want to believe) but things got going again when he inserted himself into the final qualifying match for the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match that was won by Samoa Joe when he put Bryan to sleep. Following the match, Cass put a beatdown on Bryan, much like he did after their match at Backlash, which essentially led to this match taking place.
Prediction: While the marks will hate it, I think Big Cass picks up the win here. Seeing as how this feud has been based on a little bit of jealousy and given the lengths that Cass has gone to in getting vicious with Bryan, I think he wins here and then we get the rubber match at Extreme Rules next month with some sort of stipulation.
