WWE Championship Steel Cage Match
Randy Orton (c) vs. Batista

Jerry Lawler said he thinks Orton will win, which would seem to indicate a Batista victory. Orton tried to run out of the cage immediately, but was blocked by Batista. Orton continued to try and get out of the cage anytime he gained the advantage.

At one point, Orton tried to climb out of the cage but saw an opening for a punt so he climbed back in. He went for the punt but missed and tried to run out of the cage, but Batista caught him. Orton shook out, but Batista grabbed him and hit the Batista bomb to get the three count. Kinda anti-climactic ending for a world title change.

Winner and NEW WWE Champion: Batista

After the match, Batista looked at the belt and said "For you, Ric"!
