Triple H defeated Cody Rhodes (w/Randy Orton & Ted DiBiase): Just as the match was set to begin, Randy Orton & Ted DiBiase walked out to the stage to keep an eye on the match.

Orton & DiBiase didn’t want to get into the ring while HHH had the weapon in his hands. Suddenly a steel cage was lowered onto the ring, thus allowing HHH to wrestle Cody Rhodes without interference from Orton & DiBiase. HHH dropped the weapon and the match officially started. HHH proceeded to pound on Rhodes, as Orton and DiBiase circled the cage trying to find a way in.
