WWE RAW Results
Randy Orton comes out and says Big Show blackmailed his way into a title match at Survivor Series, but he beat him down bad enough to know who's winning that match. Orton says he is going to retain his title and remain as the face of WWE, and he is in charge tonight because Triple H and Stephanie are absent. He says they left him in charge while they are in vacation, but Brad Maddox comes out and says Orton needs to be respectful of his position. Before he can go any further, Kane comes out and informs Maddox that he is actually in charge of the show tonight, and he will handle things from here. Kane and Maddox argue with each other and make matches for Orton, but Orton yells and tells them to make up their minds. Vickie Guerrero interrupts them and says she is the voice of reason, so she is making Orton face both Goldust and Cody Rhodes in a handicap match.
