We are back and Daniel Bryan makes his way to the ring and he is accompanied by the first lady of Smackdown, AJ Lee.
Michael lets Daniel speak first and Daniel is surprised that Cole is now calling him ‘champ’ after everything that has happened in the last two years.
Cole asks Bryan how much of his success he attributes to luck. Daniel says that he has not been lucky at all. When you are good, you don’t need luck. It was not luck that allowed him to successfully cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase. It was not luck when he defeated Mark Henry in a lumberjack match. It was not luck when he defeated Mark Henry and Big Show inside a steel cage at the Royal Rumble. It was not luck when he defeated five top Smackdown wrestlers to retain his title at Elimination Chamber.
Bryan says that it has been the pure knowledge and application of scientific wrestling. It has been living a clean, vegan lifestyle that keeps him mentally and physically fit. Plus, it is his charisma, his undeniable sex appeal that contributes to his success.
Cole turns his attention to Sheamus and suggests that it takes some luck to win the Royal Rumble match. Cole says that it could be the ‘Luck of the Irish’.
Sheamus says that everyone needs a little luck. He says that he is proud that he is from Ireland. He says that he is lucky to be in the United States and in WWE. He says that he is a firm believer of making your own luck. He has fought his way back to the top.
Sheamus says that at least he has not hidden behind a ninety-nine pound little girl who looks like she should be wearing a Catholic school girl uniform.
AJ takes the mic and she wants to say something but Daniel Bryan tells her to shut up. AJ has had nothing to do with his success and if anything, she has gotten in the way . . . literally.
Sheamus tells Daniel that AJ shouldn’t be wearing the skirt, it should be him. Sheamus says Bryan gives off the impression that he is an arrogant, annoying, self delusional, whiny little wimp.
At Wrestlemania, Bryan’s luck is going to run out because he is going to beat him for the World Championship.
Cody Rhodes’ music plays and he comes out because it is main event time.
