Ted DiBiase & Cody Rhodes: Cody brought up the last time Ted’s won a match. Cody said there’s been flashes of brilliance but then he goes out and loses to a common man.

IN RING SEGMENT
Teddy Long + Christian + World Heavyweight champion Randy Orton + Sheamus: Teddy said it was time for another (boring) contract signing. Christian came down to the ring first with a lawyer; the ring was set up for one of these. Randy Orton came down alone. Christian said his legal counsel reviewed the contract and it clearly states that if he gets screwed over again he receives another rematch. Christian said Teddy and the refs can’t save Randy anymore. Christian said Randy can’t beat him. Randy said there was a time where he actually enjoyed facing him and respected him. Randy said they had a great match and he won. Randy said they had another epic match and he won again. Randy said the more he wins, the more Christian whines. Randy said it was comical but now he’s getting angry. Randy said Christian is going to have to beat him to get the title and that will never ever happen. Sheamus attacked Randy while Christian was signing it. Sheamus started beating up Christian too. Sheamus tore the contract in half.
