Henry held onto the bear hug for awhile until Orton was able to punch out of it. Henry quickly regained the advantage with a headbutt and threw Orton outside of the ring.
Henry went for the WSS, but Orton jumped onto the cage and kicked Henry in the head. Orton then planted Henry with a DDT on the steps. Orton continued to beat Henry outside of the cage, and then took the match back in the ring. Orton hit a Lou Thesz press and a standing dropkick. Orton then hit another DDT on Henry and motioned for an RKO. Orton then hit the RKO, but Henry kicked out at 1! Orton got that crazy look in his eye and went to the corner to hit a punt. As he charged at Henry, Henry caught him and hit the World's Strongest Slam and got the three count!
After the match, Henry grabbed a chair and then hit another WSS on Orton after the cage was raised. Henry then wrapped the chair around Orton's ankle and went to Pillman-ize it, but Orton was able to get out of the way. Orton then grabbed the chair and nailed Henry with a chairshot to the gut followed by one to the back. Henry retreated to the back, but Orton followed him and continued to plant Henry with chair shots all the way to the top of the stage. Orton went for another chair shot, but Henry kicked Orton in the gut and ran off. Orton got back to his feet and was frustrated, looking dejected as he was heading to the back.
Josh Matthews interviewed Alberto Del Rio backstage. Del Rio said it's not fair that he's in this match, since it's barbaric and he's not an animal. He warned Punk and Cena that they'll see a side of Del Rio that they didn't know existed and he's leaving the Cell with the WWE title.
Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes comes out, dressed in a suit. Rhodes gets rid of the old belt and unveils a new belt, which is the original title from the 80's and 90s, but on a white canvas. Rhodes noted that men like Randy Savage, Steve Austin and Ricky Steamboat have held that belt, but unlike them, he will hold onto the title. John Lauranitis comes out and says that Rhodes has to defend the title now, and it's against this man... John Morrison's music hits!
