THE ERA OF ORTON BEGINS
Justin Roberts announces our new WWE Champion, Randy Orton. As Orton gets into the ring, Sheamus makes his way out, fella. He says to relax, and for the sake of all of us, he cannot let this happen. Orton doesn't deserve this moment because once again, Sheamus has had the title stolen from him. he has been discriminated against since he got here. He enters the ring and says that Orton has never beaten him one on one for the title. SHEAMUS DOES NOT APPROVE and calls Orton's win pathetic. Orton says that Sheamus won the title with the help of Nexus, and then got himself DQ'd when they last faced, and that Sheamus has never beaten him and that is pathetic. Orton then says he deserves a rematch, and says to get it soon, because if he doesn't, all he will get is a punt to the skull. Sheamus mocks Orton and says he is not intimidated FELLA. Orton dares him, and AOL GM ™ chimes in, and Cole goes to read the email. They will have a rematch, and there will be no question as to who the winner is, because it will be at HELL…IN A…CELL! Sheamus likes this, mentions ending HHH's career, and says Orton's chances are slim. Sheamus demands his title, which doesn't sit well with Orton. Sheamus says that if Orton beats him in hell in a Cell, he will give it back. Orton says he is not honorable, and that he has hospitalized many people, deserving or not, but most in his way. He would RKO his grandma to keep the title, and do the same to Sheamus' to see the look on her face. He is the champion, and the only man that will carry the title. But if he wants to do something about it, if he wants it that bad, go ahead and take it. Orton tosses him the title…RKO FELLA~! Orton leaves, but then comes back into the ring. Sets for the punt…but Sheamus escapes.
