Winner: Alberto Del Rio
- Orton takes the mic and apologizes for interrupting. Orton says Batista has been distracted since the days of Evolution. Orton says that loss just now was one of the funniest things he's seen. He calls the WWE Universe's reaction to Batista's return funny also. Orton says the fans don't like Batista very much. Orton bets Batista is sorry that he came back. A huge CM Punk chant starts before Batista speaks. He says Orton is wrong. Batista tells everyone to get it through their head - he loves this business. Fans boo. Something else he loves is that the fans have a voice. But so does he, he says. He says if they cheer him, he cheers back. If they boo, he boos back. It's called being real and honesty, something Orton knows nothing about. Batista says all that matters is that he goes to WrestleMania and beats the hell out of who he used to call his friend. Batista calls Orton a whiny, sniffling, kiss ass, stuck up. Batista says we're looking at the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion and to deal with it. He drops the mic and the music plays as Orton looks on from the stage with his titles in the air.
