Daniel Bryan continued his WWE rise on RAW last night, as he defeated Randy Orton, avenging last week's defeat.
Originally scheduled as the first fight of the night, controversy reigned when officials lost control of the initial match and declared it a no contest.
Both competitors had come out brawling, and it quickly reached the stage where hopes of a legitimate match were fading, and more officials had to come out to separate the two.
Luckily, the WWE Universe were allowed to vote as to whether the pair should be given a second chance. Predictably, stipulation was secured, and both wrestlers re-emerged in the final bout of the evening.
Match two started in exactly the same fashion as the first: fast and furious. Each combatant put the other through a table and beat each other up to such an extent that the 'no disqualification match' tag was clearly vindicated.
A finish finally came when Bryan trapped Orton in the 'No Lock'. Orton grabbed a Kendo stick and hit Bryan in attempt to break the hold, but Bryan then grabbed the stick himself and put it across Orton's face to force him to tap out.
The pair were fighting in their latest head-to-head match. Orton had claimed victory last week when Bryan was injured and the match was stopped. On SmackDown, Bryan won via count-out, but was not satisfied with winning that way.
Elsewhere last night, Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio suffered defeat, via disqualification, at the hands of Chris Jericho - hardly ideal preparation for his title match against Dolph Ziggler on July 14.
