We begin listening to voices and Randy Orton makes his way to the ring.
We see footage from the issues between Randy Orton and Alberto Del Rio from the last month that will be leading to their match at Hell in a Cell.
Randy says that he came out here tonight to set the record straight. Most people think that he despises Alberto Del Rio because he attacked him last week. It is not because he attacked him, it is why he attacked him. If Alberto had said that he was trying to get people to forget about how he is a miserable disappointment after failing against Sheamus. Del Rio attacked him while facing Big Show.
Alberto was not honest and he picked the wrong guy to make an example out of. Randy says that he will be honest with Alberto. On Sunday, he will give Alberto the most brutal beating of his life. Alberto likes to call himself the new Apex Predator of the WWE and that is his biggest lie.
Randy is interrupted by Alberto’s music and he comes out to the stage with Ricardo Rodriguez.
Alberto says that Randy is not very smart. They are going to do this on his terms, not Randy’s. In two days, at Hell in a Cell, he will show the world that Randy is not a viper. He is nothing like a garden snake and he can crush Randy at any time with his boot. Alberto says that he is the new Apex Predator in the WWE.
Randy says that he can understand Alberto, but if the people of Providence cannot understand him. He says that Alberto has big talk when he is not in the ring or when they are at a distance. He says that Alberto is a spineless, bottom feeder with no cajones.
Alberto asks Randy if he thinks he is afraid of him. Alberto says that Randy’s time is up. Ricardo has something to say to Alberto but Alberto does not move. Alberto backs up and he tells Randy not yet, but he will see him on Sunday.
Orton’s music plays and from out of nowhere, Wade Barrett attacks Randy from behind and connects with a forearm to the back and he leaves the ring.
We go to commercial.
We area back and Alberto and Ricardo are in the back. Teddy Long asks Alberto if he is happy with what happened and Alberto says that he had nothing to do with what happened to Orton.

Before our next match, Damien Sandow has something to say so he wishes to beg our indulgence for a moment. Damien says that this craze sweeping the nation is reflective of the poor mental state of this crowd. Why are people so enamored with the word ‘yes’. There are so many different ways to show your approval.

We are back and Josh Mathews is in the ring with a gaggle of WWE security. He says that we will see a match of epic proportions on Sunday when Big Show faces Sheamus for the World Title.
Josh brings out Sheamus first because he is the current World Champion.
Josh then brings out the challenger, The Big Show and the wall of security forms between Sheamus and Show.
Show tells Josh that there is nothing self-professed about the KO Punch or that it is the most devastating move in WWE History. It is stronger than the Rock’s Rock Bottom, Steve Austin’s Stunner, and John Cena’s Attitude Adjustment. We have proof that the KO Punch is stronger than the Brogue Kick.
Sheamus says that if Show wants to believe that the KO Punch is the most devastating move in the WWE, go head. In order for the punch to be lethal, he has to hit someone with it.
Show tells Sheamus that he will fail at Hell in a Cell like he did before. Show shows us footage of the last time that Sheamus tried to give Show a Brogue Kick and we see Sheamus get sent over the ropes to the floor by Big Show.
Show asks Sheamus if he remembers. Sheamus’ boot did not get high enough to kick his head off his shoulders. In order for the Brogue kick to be effective, you have to get your boot in your opponent’s face. He says that Sheamus does not have what it takes to Brogue kick him in the head or beat him. If Sheamus thinks that he is going to kick his head off his shoulders, Sheamus is either stupid or delusional.
Sheamus says that there are two things he loves in life. One is a pint of ale. The other is a great fight. When he saw Show become the number one contender, his mouth started to water. That meant that he would be able to face a giant and a monster. Someone who dominated for more than a decade. A man who won the title he is holding on his first day in the business. There is no bigger challenge for him than Big Show.
Since he won the title at Wrestlemania, he has defeated everyone who faced him. Big Show is different. Sheamus says that Show is a mountain . . . a mountain that he will conquer.
Sheamus says that he is ready, but Show says that Sheamus is scared and he can see it in his eyes.
Sheamus says that if he has to bring the Giant to his knees to hit the Brogue Kick, that is what he is going to do. If he has to give Show ten Brogue kicks, that is what he will do. He has known that he will face Show for a month. Sheamus says that they are now forty-eight hours away from Hell in a Cell. The time for talking is over. The time for fighting is now.
Show says that Sheamus doesn’t want any . . .
Before Show can finish, the Maginot Line of security is penetrated and Show and Sheamus brawl until they figure it is easier to take care of security. Sheamus tries to Brogue Kick Show but Show gets out of the ring.
Show tells Sheamus he will see him on Sunday. Sheamus gives a Brogue kick to another member of the security detail.
We go to credits.
