Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz vs. Baron Corbin – Number 1 Contender Match for the Unviversal Title

Baron says he sees Daniel Bryan chomping at the bit and this is his kingdom and we do things his way. All of these people like you. That is because these bottom feeders are jealous of his success. Baron says he will make this very simple. You and The Miz have families. You and the Miz are terrible fathers. You and the Miz want to face Bray Wyatt. You and the Miz are former World Champions who have main evented Wrestlemania. If you think you are going to win, the Fiend ripped out some brain matter in addition to your hair. You should step aside because it is an absolute disgrace that the King has to compete tonight. He earned his opportunity when he beat Roman Reigns twice. That is something that no one has done since Roman's return. The people should be begging him to vanquish Bray Wyatt. The strongest superstar should be Universal Champion. You are a nice guy, but you are no longer championship material. Just like the Miz who plays an action hero in the movies but he is not a hero. He is the only one who can beat Bray Wyatt.
