Here comes the money!!! Lillian introduces Shane O’Mac! Crowd gives Shane a nice response. We get a video recap of what happened last week on Raw with Orton threatening to sue and asking to be fired. Then the beat down of the Legacy by Shane O’Mac.
Shane starts off the show by telling us that after Raw went off the air last week he was approached by Orton’s legal team. They told him that Orton wants to face him at No Way Out! Shane McMahon versus Randy Orton in a no holds barred match!! Shane says he isn’t out there to pin Orton, says he is going to sacrifice his body to make sure that Orton doesn’t compete at WrestleMania this year!
Cue Orton’s music.
Orton comes out and says that Shane seems pretty sure of himself. Says after what he pulled off last week that he should be sure of himself. But how could he beat up the single three top superstars of the WWE? Orton says he didn’t. Orton says he told Ted and Cody not to fight back. Says none of them fought back. Orton says he was looking at the Raw roster on stage and that any of them was waiting for an oppurtunity to impress Stephanie that they didn’t fight back because the three on one would have become thirty on three. Orton says he got what he wanted. A match with Shane at No Way Out. Orton says Vince will have company after No Way Out and that Shane should reserve a bed next to his dad.
Orton slowly starts walking toward the ring. But then stops and heads back up the ramp. Orton put the mic down on the stage and then turns and heads back down the ramp toward the ring again.
Shane rolls up his sleeves and gets ready to fight.
As Orton is trying to get into the ring Ted and Cody come out from the crowd but Shane grabs a Kendo Stick from right under the ring apron and starts swinging and hitting everything in sight. Legacy bails out and heads up the ramp. Shane stands tall in the ring with the kendo stick. King reminds us that Shane will be able to use that kendo stick in the match at No Way Out!
