Winner – Daniel Bryan

Renee Young asks Randy Orton for his thoughts on The Authority making him face his five Elimination Chamber opponents, but Orton says he's not there for that. He says he doesn't have time to talk about relationships, but he does know Daniel Bryan's win last Monday was a fluke. Orton says he has beaten Bryan plenty of times before, and he will beat Christian tonight just like he will beat John Cena this Monday night. Orton says he is going to win at the Elimination Chamber because he is a great champion, and he's still the greatest superstar of any generation.
