Instead, the feed cut to a shot of Bray Wyatt sitting in his rocking chair on the video screen. Bray told "Hollywood" that it pains him to see Miz in this broken state.

Los Matadores vs The Real Americans
The announcers used this as their comedown match to go off the rails with random commentary about black bulls, comic book characters, JBL's old Justin Hawk gimmick (no reference to when Zeb managed him as Uncle Zebekiah), and cheap beer.

Randy Orton vs Daniel Bryan - WWE Championship
Bryan went after Orton with Yes! kicks early on, but walked into a dropkick for a one count. Cole noted these two know each other so well after headlining PPVs (and about 25 house shows) over the past few months. Orton then bumped Bryan off the ring apron into the Cell wall, rattling the chains. On the outside, Orton tried to whip Bryan into ring steps that Orton set up, but Bryan reversed and Orton ate the ring steps.

Bryan then dropkicked Orton over the top rope to the outside, sending Orton reeling into the Cell wall. Bryan then flew to the outside with consecutive suicide dives that bounced Orton into the Cell wall. But, Bryan went for a third and Orton side-stepped him to send Bryan head-first into the Cell wall. Back in the ring, Orton covered Bryan for a two count. Orton then called for the end as Michaels looked down at Bryan. Meanwhile, Cole again reminded the audience that they voted for HBK as special referee. In the corner, Orton delivered multiple headbutts, but he could not follow up, allowing Bryan to deliver a sunset flip powerbomb that rocked both men. Reset at 10:00. They came to their feet and traded European Uppercuts to the tune of "Yes!" and "No!" in the crowd. Bryan then ducked a clothesline, bounced the ropes, and smashed Orton with a charging clothesline. Orton followed with corner dropkicks, then a corner huracanrana. Bryan wanted a top-rope headbutt and he connected to Orton's shoulder for a two count. Bryan wanted Yes! kicks, but Orton ducked a decisive blow, tried a roll-up, but Bryan slapped on the Yes! Lock. Orton reached the ropes, but HBK reminded Orton that there are no rope breaks in the Cell. On the floor, Bryan ran Orton into the Cell wall a few times before measuring Orton for a flying dropkick that rocked Orton into the Cell. Bryan wasn't done on the outside, as he went under the ring to retrieve a chair. Bryan jabbed the chair into Orton's gut, then cracked it over Orton's back. Another shot to the back. Bryan then went back under the ring and chucked about 10 chairs into the ring. Bryan got a crazy look in his eyes, then told a concerned HBK to get out of his way. Bryan delivered another chair shot to Orton's back, then rolled him back into the ring. In the ring at 15:00, Bryan went for another chair shot, but Orton thumbed him in the eye. Orton then began using chairs on Bryan. Orton paused to stack up the chairs that Bryan chucked into the ring, then took Bryan to the top turnbuckle. "No, no, no," Cole said as Orton measured Bryan for an Orton Family Superplex onto the stack of chairs, but Bryan blocked, only to have Orton crotch him. Orton tried again, and this time he connected, with Bryan's feet landing on the stack of chairs. HBK sold feeling the effects himself before counting a nearfall for Orton. Suddenly, Triple H emerged from the back and walked down to ringside. Hunter argued with HBK about his count as the crowd greeted him with an "a-hole" chant. HBK and Hunter had a heated discussion, with HBK just pleading with Hunter to let him do his job. In the background, Orton had Bryan pinned with a t-bone suplex, but HBK was still engaged with Hunter. This brought over Orton to argue with Michaels, who told Hunter just to get off his back. The focus returned to the ring, where Orton delivered a trademark DDT from the second rope. Orton then measured Bryan for the finish as Hunter radnomly started climbing the cage, telling Michaels to get ready. This distracted HBK, who was then bumped when Bryan shoved Orton into the ropes. Everyone down in the ring as Hunter sold concern. Hunter then asked for the Cell to be opened so they could "evaluate HBK's health." Meanwhile, Bryan scored a visual three count on Orton. Hunter entered the Cell, where he shoved Bryan aside before pretending to check on Hunter. In the background, Bryan readied himself to KO Hunter, then when Hunter turned around, Bryan smashed Hunter in the face with his knee finisher. This apparently upset HBK, who frustratingly waited for Bryan to turn around to deliver a Superkick that whiffed. Bryan sold anyways. HBK sold inner conflict before checking on his buddy, Hunter. Orton then covered Bryan, HBK had a moment of realizing the consequences of his decision, then he counted a three count for the win.
The winner of the match and NEW WWE Champion: Randy Orton
Post Match: HBK dejectedly left the ring, not wanting to face the consequences of his actions. Once Michaels left the ring, Hunter recovered in the ring and was greeted by Orton, who celebrated their title victory. Bryan was then helped out of the ring selling the effects of HBK's whiffed Superkick. The PPV signed off at 10:53 EST with Cole declaring that they have a new WWE champion, but questions linger.
