Christian (c) vs. Randy Orton
Christian takes the mic and says that he will keep his promise about having a big announcement, and introduces Edge, who will be in his corner tonight. Edge's music hits, and he comes out with shorter hair than the last time we saw him.
Edge enters the ring and takes the mic. He thanks the crowd for his ovation. He says that he will never be physically able to compete again, but that he was happy to pass the torch to Christian and he was proud of him for winning the championship. He then talked about how Christian kept complaining and kept getting rematches and finally won the title via DQ. Edge says he did some bad things in the ring, but he always did it with style and wasn't boring and didn't hide behind lawyers and suits. Edge says that somewhere along the line, he became a disgrace to himself and that he didn't know that his best friend would become a "whining, crying, moaning little b---h" and took off to the back while Christian screamed at him to come back. Randy Orton's music hits and he heads to the ring.
The match went into the stands early. Once they got back to the ring, Christian got a hold of a kendo stick and beat Orton with it. He missed a shot, which sent the stick out of the ring, but continued to dominate the match.

Later in the match, Orton introduces a table in the ring, and Christian sets up another one outside of the ring. Orton superplexed Christian on the table, which was flat on the mat, and got a two count. Orton then set the table up in the corner, which was already cracked, and went to throw Christian through it, but Christian was able to get out. Christian motioned for a spear but Orton dodged, and Christian threw him outside of the ring. Once outside, Orton threw Christian into the steps. Orton set the steps up on the ring apron, but Christian was the one who would use it, knocking Orton's head in the the steps.
