- We are welcomed to the show after the opener and this week, Randy Orton faces Damien Sandow. We go to footage from their confrontation from last week's show.
- We go to the ring for Sandow's entrance. Sandow cuts a promo on his way down and tries to silence the crowd. He says his lesson will be imparted via physical means as he dismantles his opponent. Orton's music hits to cheers and he slowly makes his way into the ring.
Randy Orton vs. Damien Sandow
They lock up and Orton backs him into the corner and the ref breaks them up. They trade holds and Sandow hits a shoulderblock off the ropes and gloats. Orton hits a couple shoulderblocks and a hiptoss and Sandow escapes to the floor. Orton goes out and hits another shoulderblock on the floor as we go to break.
- Kofi Kingston brings us a PSA for 'be a STAR.'
- Back to action as Sandow has a headlock on Orton in the ring. Orton gets out with a side suplex that the camera does not show. Orton hits an off-camera dropkick to Sandow and drops knees on him. Sandow moves off the mat to avoid the last knee but Orton counters him with a suplex and gets 2. We see more of Booker T and Josh Mathews. Orton works the left arm and gets another 2. Sandow rolls to the floor and Orton goes out and drives him into the security wall. He sends Sandow back in and we miss Sandow's move to regain offense. Sandow drops elbows to Orton's neck across the apron. Sandow does a Side Russian Leg Sweep and drops the Elbow of Disdain for 2. Sandow applies a body-scissors; Orton reaches for the ropes but finally turns his body and gets out. Orton rolls him up in the corner and gets 2 but Sandow keeps the pressure on as we take another break.
- Kaitlyn brings us this week's PSA to not try this at home.
- We're back as Sandow tries a moonsault off the 2nd buckle and Orton moves. A crawler at the bottom of the screen tells us that the show will be on at its new time next week: 10:30. Orton starts to build a fury and he hits his ropes DDT but we only see Booker and Josh. Orton coils up and hits the off-screen RKO for the win.
Winner by pin: Randy Orton
- Saturday Morning Spotlight: Sheamus
We see a highlight package and are told that Sheamus will be in action next week as we go off the air.
