Josh Mathews joins Randy Orton for his thoughts on Money In The Bank, and Orton says he beat CM Punk before and tonight won't be any different. Orton says if Cena wins Sunday, and he means if, he won't hesitate on cashing in the briefcase that he wins so he can become WWE Champion. We cut to the arena where Chris Jericho and Curtis Axel make their entrances, and Paul Heyman removes his glasses and says he was a martyr. Heyman says he acted in good faith for his friend CM Punk, but right now they are there to bask in the glow of perfection. Axel makes fun of Jericho and his light-up jacket, and he says all he needs is the glow of his Intercontinental Championship, and no one will stop him.
