Lillian Garcia introduces the current World Champion Daniel Bryan and he makes his way to the ring but he does not have the normal bounce in his step. Daniel says that tonight’s television show is aptly named ‘Sin City Smackdown’. It is not because we are emanating from Las Vegas. It is what Big Show did to his girlfriend last week. Show committed a sin. Show weighs 441 pounds and is the World’s Largest Athlete while AJ only weighs 95 pounds. Bowling over AJ was not an accident, it was intentional. Big Show was not sorry, he only pretended to be sorry. Show’s tears were not tears of sorrow, they were crocodile tears.
Big Show is bitter. He is bitter because his World Championship reign was the shortest in history. It was a mere forty-five seconds. After he cashed in the contract to become the World Champion, Show was never able to live that down. Show is a bitter, selfish, vengeful freak.
Because of that, his girlfriend has suffered head trauma, a cervical sprain, and her career may be over. It was all because she insisted on being with him at ringside. Daniel says that she would put herself in harm’s way because she loves him. Daniel says that he has never had anyone say that to him before. Daniel says that he has a great admiration for her as well. That is why he dedicated his match to AJ on Monday. He is going to do the same tonight. Even though she is not here in spirit, she will be in his corner.
As for Mark Henry, he is not afraid. Just like he is not intimidated by that acromegalic swine Big Show, who is not even here tonight. It is a good thing that Show is not here tonight because Bryan says that he cannot be held responsible for what he might have to do. He wants Show to do the right thing before he unleashes his fury on Show. He wants Show to do the right thing before he injures someone else. He tells Big Show to quit.
