Randy Orton vs Damien Sandow

Orton hits a shoulder block off the ropes then Sandow rolls outside, and he asks for some time before getting in the ring and locking back up. Orton shoves him in the corner but Sandow takes a cheap shot, then he rams his shoulder into Orton but Orton whips him back across the ring. Sandow slides outside and takes another breather, then he tells the ref to back Orton away but Orton kicks him in the ribs and elbows him. Orton drops him with an uppercut then goes for a backbreaker, but Sandow once again retreats to the floor so Orton runs after him and clotheslines him from behind.

Orton slams his head into the broadcast table and Dolph stands up and talks trash, and the distraction is enough for Sandow to throw him into the ringpost. Sandow picks him up and sends him back into the post, then he rolls him in and gets a near fall as we go to a commercial break. Sandow has Orton in a headlock as we get back, then he punches Orton in the back and drops him with a side Russian legsweep for a near fall. Orton avoids a corner clothesline and connects with some clotheslines, then hits a powerslam and looks at Dolph while he hits a hanging DDT. Orton sets up a RKO but Sandow rolls outside and runs backstage, then the ref counts him out and Orton stares at Dolph as he is announced as the winner.

Dolph gets up to leave but Orton cuts him off, then Dolph takes a swing at him but Orton ducks and throws him in the ring. Dolph hits him a few times but Orton slams him down with a spinning powerslam, then he punches the mat and sets up a RKO. Sandow runs back out and tries to attack him, but Orton drops him with a RKO and Dolph runs off with his briefcase.

Winner – Randy Orton
