Michael Cole was electric with the closing moments comments and made Bryan’s victory look great. Bryan posed mid-ring on his knees with both belts. Bryan then climbed on the American announce table and led New Orleans in a YES chant as pyro and confetti shot off. Bryan paraded around the ring with his Titles as confetti reigned. Bryan then brought a cut little girl and a woman (I’m guessing his mom) in the ring to celebrate with him.

The show ended with Bryan tearing up mid-ring kneeling before his tow Titles. That was a great moment.
