- Daniel Bryan is out to the ring to talk about James Ellsworth's interference in the Money In The Bank ladder match on Sunday. Bryan says the rules say the first woman to hold the briefcase wins, and he points out that there has been interference in these kind of matches before. Bryan says there has never been someone who interferes to climb the ladder, grab the case and hand it to someone else.
