According to Daniel Bryan on Talking Smack, the #1 contendership for Bray Wyatt's title is still in limbo following Randy Orton's proclamation and, well, arson.
Total Bellas, the hit reality show starring Cena and Nikki, was renewed for a second season after the finale of the first season "delivered a series high of almost 1 million total viewers" last fall. After competing in a battle royal, as well as a singles match with Luke Harper, Styles was named the new No. 1 contender to Wyatt's title.
In response, Cena noted how The Miz has spent his career copying others and noted how if The Miz was willing, they could settle their differences at WrestleMania despite the former Intercontinental Champion not being the opponent Cena was hoping to face at the event. Quickly, The Miz and Maryse bolted while Cena and Bella celebrated in the ring.
The Miz's wife Maryse then decided she had heard enough and defended her husband with her own choice words for Cena that ended with a slap to the face.
The clip also features Dean Ambrose nailing Curt Hawkins with Dirty Deeds - and a flame-filled ending! Ambrose warned Corbin that it was a bad idea to mess with him.
Check out Harper's dropkick and suicide dive, Styles' Phenomenal Forearm and McMahon hitting the deck, plus Dolph Ziggler and Crews going to war in a Chairs Match, in the video at the top of the page. Crews looked in control by using the chairs for his maneuvers against Ziggler, but he kicked out.
Orton, who has been seen getting into an unexpected alliance with Bray Wyatt over the last few months, finally broke his silence and turned on his associate in the most ferocious way possible.
However, by the end of SD, that all changed, with Orton appearing at the Wyatt compound, the resting place of "Sister Abigail", and the essential place of worship for the Wyatt family.
Orton joined Wyatt's "brotherhood" previous year and their friendship looked unbreakable - with The Viper refusing to fight him for the WWE championship at Wrestlemania.
