- Striker is backstage with AJ Lee, Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler says Vickie Guerrero is bitter for making him pick 1 or 2 in the Royal Rumble. Ziggler picks 1 because that's what he is. AJ interrupts Striker and makes him run off or face Langston. Langston takes the mic and talks like a crazy sportscaster, asking Ziggler about the Rumble. Ziggler says he's going to win tonight, cash in later and unify the WWE Title and the World Title at WrestleMania.
- We see a video from Antonio Cesaro taped earlier. Cesaro talks about how he will win the Royal Rumble tonight. Darren Young and Titus O'Neil also talk about winning the match. Randy Orton is up next. He says tonight is his kind of night. Orton says he needs the win and he's going to take it. John Cena is up next. Cena says at the end of the night, everyone will realize the champ is here. Wade Barrett speaks next. He says he will restore credibility to the Rumble tonight. Sheamus says it's time to fight. Ryback is up last. Every 90 seconds a Superstar enters the match and he will just say feed me more.
- We get a look back at the pre-show where Antonio Cesaro retained over The Miz.
