Mark Henry is shown warming up when Daniel Bryan comes up to him and Henry says he better have a good reason for being there. Bryan says the lumberjacks were all Teddy Long's idea, and so was the match tonight and it's all because Teddy wants Big Show as champion. He says tonight is the last time before Sunday they can make things right, and he knows Henry can beat Show but he needs to hurt him and teach him a lesson. Bryan says Henry is the guy who can do that to Show, then smacks him on the shoulder and says it is up to him but Henry gives him a dirty look as he walks away.

Wade Barrett comes out and says there is a lot of excitement because Randy Orton is making his return, and he may be physically cleared but he is spiritually changed. He says Orton is a shell of himself and the only voices Orton hears are the ones telling him that Wade is better than him, but Orton's music plays and he is shown walking backstage and out to the ring. Wade runs up and meets him on the ramp and they slug it out before Orton rolls him in the ring and hits a clothesline and some corner punches. A bunch of referees run out and try to back Orton off but he chases down Wade and punches him near the apron and Teddy Long calls some superstars out to help. Orton is held back and Wade sucker punches him, then Orton breaks free and goes after Wade in the ring until they are broken up again. Wade runs away and stares Orton down in the ring, then Orton hits Tyler Reks, Curt Hawkins, Trent Barreta and the Usos with RKOs while Wade watches.
