Welcome to 411's WWE Smackdown Report 3.14.14
Match times are not exact.
We get a video package from Raw, featuring the YES movement and Triple H accepting Bryan's challenge and terms for WrestleMania 30.
Triple H decided to make a rare Smackdown appearance, which plays off of the fact that he "missed" his weekly interview with Michael Cole. Triple H said that his was happy that Bryan and his fans could get their little moment in the sun on Monday, but tonight they have to deal with the fact that Bryan isn't here. Triple H promises to deal with him on Monday, but tonight he will deal with the fans. He took a pool of the fans, asking of they would have been part of the Occupy Raw YES Movement deal from Monday. They of course supported Bryan, and Triple H said that they can trade in all of their happy tomorrows to keep the YES movement going, but that it will end now. Triple H once again said that he was trying to protect Bryan and Summerslam, he did it for Bryan and for the fans. He wanted the fans to have their moment for once in their pathetic lives, but just like Bryan, they just aren't good enough. So at WrestleMania, he crushes the hopes and dreams of the fans, noting that, "At WrestleMania, I put an end to your dreams and I bury Daniel Bryan.".
Triple H then announced Damien Sandow to come to the ring. He ran him down for not doing his job and going to the ring on Monday. Triple H wanted a sincere apology, and said if he did not get it, that there would be extreme repercussions. Sandow apologized, and Triple H said that it was good enough. Triple H wished him luck, and then it was revealed that he will go one on one with Seth Rollins.
