Big Show was the bearer of bad news to the WWE Universe, and informed everyone at the tapings in Houston, Texas that Bryan will indeed need a second procedure done to his elbow. He then led the crowd in a massive “Yes!” chant.

WWE plans on sending a tape of the Houston crowd chanting for Bryan to the injured superstar, as a means to encourage him during his recovery and prove to him that the WWE Universe is still behind him completely.
