The Great Khali vs Cody Rhodes

Khali blocks a kick by Cody and shoves him to the mat, then Cody slaps him but Khali throws him in the corner and chops him across the chest. Cody tries to run the ropes but Khali knocks him down, then Cody comes back with a dropkick and punches Khali a few times before going after his arm. Khali shoves him back so Cody starts to work on his legs, and Khali kicks him away so Cody goes up top and tries to hit an axehandle smash. Khali chops him on the way down and hits him a few times before going for a chop, but Cody snaps his head off the ropes then hits Beautiful Disaster for the win.

Winner – Cody Rhodes

Randy Orton comes to the ring and says when he has a problem he hunts someone down, but the past few weeks have made him feel like he is being hunted by Kane. He says they are both going to destroy each other, but he wants to know why Kane chose him before it happens. Orton says he isn't John Cena because hate embraces him, and you can call it morbid curiosity but he is calling Kane out. He says he just wants to know why he had to do it, then Kane's pyro explodes and he comes out to the top of the stage. Kane tells Orton he enjoys watching him twist around, but he will show him why since Orton asked so politely, then he shows a clip from last summer. 

Kane is shown shaking Orton's hand after a Last Man Standing match, and he says he has watched that clip over and over again because he hates the person he saw. He says the person he is now has no humanity left, and the WWE is not big enough for them so he is not stopping until he takes Orton out for good. Orton thanks him for saying that, but he wants Kane to come down and finish what he started and throws the mic down and waits. Kane makes it halfway down the ramp before saying he won't be satisfied unless this happens on the big stage, then says he will finish Orton at Wrestlemania.
