Daniel Bryan and The Miz produced one of the most exciting moments on WWE television in recent years last week as they appeared to legitimately clash during a segment on the post-Smackdown Live show, Talking Smack.
After Bryan insisted The Miz embodied a "soft, WWE style," the pseudo-Hollywood A-Lister went on a tirade berating Bryan for retiring from wrestling and insisted he should quit the WWE and go back to performing in bingo halls.
The Leader of the Yes Movement would get up and walk off set and the wrestling world began to buzz with what they had just witnessed. Did The Miz shoot on Bryan? Was it a work?

Bryan addressed the incident on last night's Talking Smack episode with Renee Young and it appears that it was indeed a very real argument.
Surprisingly, however, the Smackdown Live general manager had an apology for the Intercontinental champion.
Bryan insisted that the reason he walked away was because The Miz was right. The fact that he and his wife, Brie Bella, are attempting to start a family supersedes his desire to wrestle again, even though he insisted if he did, it would be at the Tokyo Dome rather than bingo halls.
Bryan went on to say that The Miz just knows how to push his buttons and that's why the WWE will be keeping them from appearing on any kind of programming together.
The Miz is now set to defend his Intercontinental championship against Dolph Ziggler at Backlash after The Showoff challenged him on Smackdown Live last night.
Bryan, on the other hand, certainly won't be returning to the squared circle.
