- We go to the arena as Daniel Bryan's music hits and he "YES's" his way to the ring. Bryan pauses in the middle of the ring as we get "YES" chants. He says on Monday something happened to him that hasn't happened in his 13 years; he has never had a match stopped due to injury. He says when the doctor asked him if he was good he said, "Yes!" He says they stopped the match because they think he is the weakest link and think he's not tough enough.
Bryan sends to the video on the Titantron and says Orton is the biggest one at fault. We see as Orton shakes Bryan's hand at the end of the footage. Bryan says instead of raging to have the match continue, Orton patted him on the head like a little dog, with pity. Bryan says he will prove he is not the weak link when he beats Randy Orton tonight. He goes into a "YES" frenzy.
Orton's music hits and he comes to the ring. Orton says Bryan has it all wrong. He says people were concerned for Bryan's well-being and he respected the fact that Bryan just kept coming. Orton says he put his arm around Bryan, not out of pity, but respect. Bryan isn't buying it and he is still paranoid about being weak. Orton agrees to the match but he says he will hurt Bryan tonight and when it gets stopped, Bryan will get carried out. He says, "Respect that!" and walks up the ramp. Bryan shakes his head in the ring.
Sheamus vs. Cody Rhodes
We see on the WWE App that Cody and Sandow drew straws to determine who faced Sheamus tonight. Sheamus and Cody feel each other out. Sheamus brings Cody down off the top the hard way. The action goes to the floor and Rhodes gets the upper hand as he throws Sheamus into the wall and awaits him in the ring.
Cody hits stomps back in the ring but Sheamus fights out of the corner. Cody works Sheamus' left arm and shoulder and kicks him in the head for 2. Cody rolls Sheamus up with the tights for 2. Sheamus fights back on the apron but Rhodes catches him in an arm submission in the ring. Sheamus gets back to his feet and hits a series of axes and the rolling senton. Sheamus kicks Sandow from the apron and goes for White Noise but Cody counters. Sheamus applies the Cloverleaf for the win.
Winner by submission: Sheamus
Sandow immediately jumps in the ring and kicks Sheamus in the back of the head and unleashes a vicious assault on him. Sandow and Rhodes leave the ring with Sheamus laying. Sandow and Sheamus have a stare down across the ramp.
- Cole sends to another Wyatt Family vignette.
- Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman make their way to the ring as we go to a commercial. Wade Barrett is in the ring as we return. Lilian Garcia makes the formal ring introductions. Nice touch. The Miz is on commentary.
