SmackDown Results December 12

We see a video package of tonight’s match between Charlotte Flair and Asuka a rematch from WrestleMania, also WWE Champion Daniel Bryan faces Mustafa Ali.

When we go live music of WWE Champion Daniel Bryan hits. Bryan says last week I called you sheep, first thing I wanted to do was apologise, I want to say sorry to the sheep, don’t need to be compared by you the idots, no such thing as a carbon hoofprints, you are more like parasites, fickle, take and take and give nothing in return especially in Las Vegas, Nevada, you latched on the old Daniel Bryan and the Yes Movement, guess what, the old Daniel Bryan is dead, yes movement is dead, but like any parasite moved onto the next fickle, and moved to place that AJ Styles built, I am the WWE Champion not AJ Styles and at TLC I will crush his dream of becoming champion again, at the end I will be announced still WWE Champion The New Daniel Bryan, you don’t believe me, I debate this with my friends, don’t know if you are stupid or have wool pulled over your eyes, he said stupidity is the deliberate cultivation of experience, which is pretty much the sum up of Las Vegas.

Music of Mustafa Ali, he comes out and introduces himself, interupted by Daniel Bryan, saying the idiots don’t know who you are, we are meant to have a match but please step in the ring, Daniel says he is the heart of 205 Live and an incredible performer, here is some advice and we don’t need to have this match, after this match the crowd won’t care, absorbed, consumed with mindless consumption, these fickle people don’t deserve this, FICKLE CHANT starts by Daniel Bryan. Mustafa says what happened to you? You made it possible for me to become a WWE Superstar, the underdog, you had heart, what happened, you keep on about the old Daniel Bryan and he would want to fight and I want a fight, FIGHT CHANT fills arena, Daniel says what car do you drive? Mustafa says I drive a SUV, Daniel says you are a small person and why you drive a SUV, Mustafa says I have a wife, kids, Daniel calls him ignorant and Daniel Bryan starts slapping him, till Mustafa Ali takes control, and then tosses Daniel out the ring and nails a moonsault as we go to a commercial break.
