Laurinaitis approaches Ryder backstage, who is selling his back injury. Laurinaitis says that he made a mistake and shouldn't have let him wrestle, and that the envelope he received earlier stated that Ryder was not medically cleared to compete. Eve started to go off, but Laurinaitis told her to "shut your mouth and show some respect." He then walked off.
Perez Hilton is introduced to a chorus of boos. He introduced the next match.

R-Truth's music hits and he heads to the ring dressed in street clothes. Before he could talk, Wade Barrett's music hits and he comes out with a mic. Barrett says that he's going to win the Rumble and noted that he's officially in the Rumble, as well as Truth, who's a lunatic. Truth tells Barrett that he talks funny. Truth goes on to talk about how they are across the street from the "Happiest Place on Earth," Disneyland and then proceeds to show photo-shopped pictures of him at Disneyland. He said that Pinocchio said that Barrett was going to win the Rumble, and they showed a picture of Pinocchio's nose growing. Truth said that he didn't even know if that's PG. That was funny. Miz attacked Truth from behind and they double teamed Truth until Sheamus made the save. Teddy Long came out and said that he's taking charge since Laurinaitis is a little busy right now. Long announced an over the top rope challenge with the four men as a Royal Rumble preview.
