Batista vs Alberto Del Rio
Batista goes right at Alberto and punches him in the corner, then he whips him across the ring and connects with a clothesline. Alberto rolls outside but Batista throws him into the barricade, then he rolls him inside but Alberto kicks him in the shoulder. Alberto punches him a few times but Batista clotheslines him on the floor, then he goes after him but Alberto sweeps his legs and knocks him on the apron. Alberto whips him into the ring steps as we cut to a break, then we get back to see Batista sidestep a clothesline and send Alberto outside. Batista scoop slams him for a near fall, then Alberto snaps his arm down and kicks him in the head a few times. Batista hits a spinebuster and sets up for the end, but Randy Orton's music cuts him off and Alberto rolls him up for the win.
Winner – Alberto Del Rio
Orton tells Batista he's always distracted, and the fans aren't too happy about him being back, in fact they don't like him at all. He says they've booed so much that Batista might be sorry he came back, but Batista says he's wrong and he loves this business. Batista says he loves the fans voicing their opinions, and he will boo and cheer them back because it's called being honest, something Orton doesn't know about. Batista says he is going to Wrestlemania to beat his former friend, and he will be the next WWE Champion so they can deal with it.
