The Raw and SmackDown GM’s Executive Administrator, Eve, announced that the No. 1 Contender for the WWE Championship will be decided by a Beat the Clock Challenge on Raw SuperShow tonight. After the five Beat the Clock matches, the Superstar who wins in the fastest time goes on to face WWE Champion CM Punk in three weeks at Over the Limit.
Daniel Bryan def. Jerry “The King” Lawler – Beat the Clock Challenge Match
Daniel Bryan’s reaction to finding out the identity of his opponent was a resounding “Yes! Yes! Yes!” Jerry Lawler put up quite a fight and even connected with a diving fist drop off the top turnbuckle. Bryan’s punishing kicks and submission technique, however, was too much for “The King” to overcome. Bryan made Lawler tap out with the “Yes!” Lock and easily beat Orton’s time of 4:16 to become the No. 1 Contender for the WWE Championship. At WWE Over the Limit, Bryan will take on CM Punk with the WWE Title on the line.
