Winner: Lord Tensai and Daniel Bryan (**1/2)
Lord Tensai may have grown exponentially in Japan, but he's pretty one note in the WWE.
After the match, Tensai leaves, but Bryan stays inside to pick apart the pieces. He attacks Punk then locks in the Yes! Lock, yelling that Punk is not better than him! The ref eventually breaks the hold only for Bryan to jump back into it and scream out Yes!
