We start off with a look back to the night that Christian finally had enough of Randy Orton as the World Champion. Then we go to last week when Christian told his fans to stop cheering for him because they were the same fans who cost him the title five nights later against Randy Orton.
We begin with Randy Orton making his way to the ring and he is dressed for action. However, he has something to say to the people of the Ocean State. Michael Cole brings up the fact that Randy Orton was not allowed to wrestle on Monday due to a concussion. Maybe Orton will address that.
Orton says that what you heard was true. Orton says that he was diagnosed with a concussion. However, Orton says that he does not give a damn and he says that he is ready to fight tonight. Christian got what he wanted and that was a World Title shot against him on Sunday. Orton says that he should get what he wants. That is the chance to beat the living hell out of Christian, right here and right now.
Before Christian can answer Randy’s challenge. Teddy Long makes his way to the ring. What will he ask the crowd about tonight?
Teddy tells Randy that he appreciates what the playa is feeling and he doesn’t blame him one bit. Teddy says that he hasn’t received Randy’s official medical clearance so he cannot let Randy fight tonight.
Christian takes this opportunity to make his way out and he soaks in the hate from his former Peeps. Christian says that he does not know why Orton is angry at him because he gave Randy something he always wanted. He gave him a concussion and that gives Orton an excuse when Christian beats him for the title instead of the real reason. That reason is because Christian is just better than Orton.
Christian doesn’t want to let the facts get in the way of a good story so he doesn’t want the fans to think any less of him when Christian beats him. Christian reminds Orton that he is the Legend Killer.
Christian pulls a Teddy and polls the audience to see if the people will think any less of Randy when he loses the title on Sunday. Christian says that the really really really good news is that when he beats Randy on Sunday, if Orton is real polite, he will give him another rematch five days later.
Christian starts to walk to the back and Sheamus comes out to the stage. Sheamus says that between Orton’s concussion, Christian’s constant whining, and Teddy Long’s incompetence, they have forgotten the big picture. Sheamus reminds us that he beat the World Champion last week. Sheamus wants to know from Teddy who deserves the title match more. The guy who lost fifty straight title matches or the man who beat the champion.
Christian tells Teddy Long and Strawberry Shortcake that the match is already set.
Teddy says that Sheamus will face Christian in the main event tonight. If Sheamus wins, the title match will become a Triple Threat Match. If Christian wins, there will be no change to the World Title Match. Teddy says that Orton will get a ringside seat for that match.
Teddy tells Randy that he can look and watch during the match, but he cannot touch or there will be serious consequences. Teddy wants to make sure that Teddy understands.
Randy says that tonight there will be serious consequences.
