HHH says another job he has is to ensure the health and welfare of the roster, but he's been wondering about Bryan's health because he keeps getting into bad situations. He says the fans don't help because they keep chanting 'YES', and that's a problem because they are making Bryan think he's popular. HHH says Bryan is confusing popularity with 'best for business', and he wants to give them an example of why popularity never works. HHH talks about Doink the Clown being popular, but he wasn't championship material, just like Bryan isn't, but he won't stop him from trying. He says he could bring back the Cruiserweight or European Championships, and that would be fine for Bryan, but he isn't best for the WWE Championship.
Bryan comes out and says he's honored to be compared to Doink, but he doesn't think people chanted for him in 1992, and he's looking at two clowns now. Bryan says they want him to give up his title shot, and he understands it, because HHH gave up being a man when he cut his hair and went corporate. He says Orton basically gave up being in the title picture until someone handed it to him, then Bryan asks the crowd what they think about giving up his match. Bryan says the answer is the same as if Orton is more manly than Stephanie McMahon, then he starts a NO chant until Orton cuts him off. Bryan says Orton has never heard no, but he's always been told he can't do something, like being a World Champion. Bryan says the doubt made him who he is, and Orton will never understand how it is because he's always been given everything. Bryan says he knows he can beat Orton, and deep down Orton and HHH know it, otherwise they wouldn't put him in gauntlet matches and beat him up. He says they know what the fans know, and Orton might have the genetics of a champion, but he has no heart and he just acts like a big dog. HHH cuts him off and says he is too angry, but his anger is misdirected because Bryan should be mad at Big Show, who watches him get beat up every week. He says Show stands and watches the attacks, but Bryan can get his anger out in tonight's main event when he faces Big Show one on one.
HHH and Orton are shown walking backstage bragging about making Bryan and Big Show fighting, then they run into Cody Rhodes and say hello. Cody says tonight's main event should be good if no one gets involved, and HHH asks him what exactly he means by that. Cody says with all due respect, Orton versus Bryan is good for business, then HHH tells him that he decides what is good for business, not him. HHH says Cody is probably busy planning his wedding, one that he didn't get invited to, but he did get him a wedding present, a match with Orton tonight. Cody says it's a honor, but HHH says Cody needs to win or he won't be here much longer, and there's a lot riding on him coming through.

He suggests Bryan think about giving up his title shot, but Bryan says Booker should tell him he didn't just say that.
