Bryan heads up top but Orton cuts him off, then he hits a superplex but he holds his leg after they land and the ref starts a count as we go to a break. Bryan is still attacking Orton's knee when we get back, but Orton makes a comeback and hits Bryan with a few clotheslines and sends him to the apron. Orton sets up a hanging DDT but Bryan drops to the floor, then Orton reverses an Irish whip on the floor and sends Bryan into the barricade. Bryan kicks his leg and chest a few times, then Orton surprises him with a backbreaker for two and whips him into the corner.

Orton runs at Bryan and gets kicked in the knee, then Bryan goes up top but Orton punches him in the head and hits a DDT from the middle rope. Orton goes for a RKO but Bryan counters with a NO! Lock attempt, then he secures the hold and pulls back but Kane's pyro explodes on the ringposts. Bryan breaks the hold and jumps out of the ring, then the lights come back on and Bryan gets panicked and looks around for Kane. He finally gets back in the ring, but Orton leaps up and surprises him with a RKO to pick up the win. Orton celebrates on the turnbuckles as Bryan rolls outside and holds his head, then he shakes his head and looks worried as Kane appears onstage and smiles.
