Triple H and Stephanie McMahon announced that Daniel Bryan was officially stripped of the WWE World Heavyweight championship in the opening segment of Raw.

WWE aired a statement from Dr Joseph Maroon, noting that after examining Bryan, he could not clear him to compete "this month" without potential long-term damage to Bryan's well being. He said he would continue to evaluate Bryan to see when he could return.

The championship belts were hanging above the ring and The Authority announced that there would be a Money in the Bank match at the PPV of the same name on 6/29 with Alberto Del Rio (won a qualifying match last week) and Randy Orton (who was deemed "deserving" of being added) the first two announced competitors.
