We're back and Tensai hits a tackle in the corner and connects with a splash in the corner from the 2nd turnbuckle. He gets 2. We see that during the break, Tensai had sent Orton's back into the steel post on the floor. Tensai keeps the pressure on and applies a Claw to the shoulder of Orton. Orton fights up and out and hits a headbutt and a powerslam. Tensai tries to escape and makes it to the apron. Orton intercepts him and plants him with his patented DDT but only gets 2. Orton stomps Tensai's head on the mat. Orton takes out Sakamoto on the apron and coils up. Tensai avoids the RKO and hits the double-fisted chokeslam but misses with the Senton Splash. Orton hits the RKO for the win.
Winner by pin: Randy Orton
Vickie Guerrero comes on the stage and says Dolph Ziggler didn't appreciate his comments from earlier. She says that per her advisement, Ziggler has taken the night off. She says Ziggler will defeat him this Sunday and he will never be a World Champion again. Orton says he's standing in the ring with his back turned talking to her and that can only mean one thing: he swings around just as Ziggler tries to enter the ring from behind and Ziggler changes his mind. We go to commercial.
Antonio Cesaro is in the ring with Aksana. Cesaro says he is appalled that a battle royal will decide who he will defend his United States Title against at Night of Champions. He says there is only one word that can describe how he is feeling right now: he says "outraged" in 5 languages. Tyson Kidd' music hits. Kidd says Cesaro can run his mouth in as many languages as he wants but he'll put it to him in Canadian: after this Sunday he will be the former U.S Champ "Eh." Cesaro clocks him and tosses him out. Cesaro asks, "Anybody else?" Brodus Clay comes out as Cesaro tries to calm him down. Clay won't let him leave and Cesaro turns around into a kick from Kidd from the apron and a headbutt and a splash from Clay. Clay and Kidd dance in the ring. We go to commercial.
Wade Barrett makes his entrance to the stage and says everyone is either too scared or too stupid to know what he meant by "Wade Barrett is open for business." He says, Next week one lucky person will get to sample the product. And after that business will be booming."
Kaitlyn vs. Beth Phoenix
We see a Tout from Eve who says regardless of who wins this Sunday, it is good for the Divas Division. Beth applies a headlock, early, and tells the ref to "ask her." Layla watches on a monitor in the back. Kaitlyn hits a shoulderblock and goes for a German Suplex but Beth runs her throat into the ropes. Beth gets caught with a big boot in the corner but is able to drag Kaitlyn off the top. Beth goes for the Glam Slam but Kaitlyn counters into a reverse DDT for the win.
Winner by pin: Kaitlyn
