WINNER: Randy Orton
After the match Miz & Alex charge the ring and begin taking down Orton. Orton tries battling back but Miz is too healthy and sends Orton shoulder first into the steel steps. The announce tables catches the eye of Miz but Jerry Lawler stands up to Miz, keeping him away. Miz acts fast and sends The King over the barricade onto the concrete! Orton tries to take his chance, but Miz scouts it and throws the Viper headfirst into the announce table. Miz sends Orton spine first into the corner post, Orton is now helpless. Alex holds Orton as Miz stomps on his chest, telling him he won't get the championship. The two force Randy to his feet and send him crashing through the barricade onto a steel chair! Miz grabs a microphone, Orton is barely moving! "I'm the Miz and I'm awesome!"
Fantastic beat-down! It shows a side of The Miz that we've only seen against easy prey (Jerry Lawler)
We go backstage where Punk says one must have humility to really possess faith. One must be willing to sacrifice their all, to bow before the temptations of the blood thirsty. Nexus bow their heads to end the segment. Odd.
Maryse vs. Natalya
We go to the ring and out comes Maryse. Eve Torres and Melina are on commentary with Cole. Out next comes the WWE Divas Champion Natalya. The bell rings and Maryse mushes Natalya and slaps her. Natalya drops Maryse and goes for a Sharpshooter. Maryse makes it to the ropes to break the hold. Maryse drops Natalya now for a 2 count.
Maryse with a chinlock now. Natalya breaks out of it and they go at it. Natalya hits the spinning clothesline and goes for the Sharpshooter. Natalya locks it in and Maryse taps out after she can't reach the ropes.
Maryse is upset and is yelling at Ted Dibiase saying he's a loser for losing to an NxT rookie. Ted says he isn't a loser and will win the Royal Rumble! He issues a challenge to anyone for an over-the-top rope challenge!
Mark Henry come sout and makes easy work off Ted Dibiase! The lockeroom begins to empty out as the mid-carders (William Regal, Tyson Kidd, Yoshi Tatsu, Darren Young, Zack Ryder, R-Truth, Primo Colon and David Hart Smith) run out to prove to the fans they can win the rumble! This is in no way official, just wrestlers trying to prove themselves. Sheamus shows up and begins cleaning out the ring, leaving only Mark Henry & The King. Sheamus is almost knocked out but is able to hold on. Henry grabs Sheamus and tosses him over the top rope as his music plays again!
Not so fast, here comes Alberto Del Rio (aka, my Royal Rumble Winner Prediction!), he introduces himself, great heat from the crowd! Alberto tells us about his destiny again. Henry tells Alberto to come down and face him but he won't. He just smiles and mouths things about his destiny!
