Stephanie says Triple H is the crown jewel among them and CM Punk laughs directly in view of the camera. Triple H talks about their championship pedigrees for a bit but the more he talks, the louder the fans chant for Daniel Bryan. Mark Henry raises his hand and the crowd goes nuts with a Yes! chant. Triple H says that's a lot of family for one building and he should have known because a lot of them look like Bryan.
Triple H turns his focus to the match at TLC and brings out Randy Orton. Stephanie brings out John Cena. Hunter asks them to hand over their titles, which they do. Cena also shakes Bryan's hand. Orton says he knows better than anyone what Cena is capable of, but he also knows what he is not. He says Cena does not have "ruthless aggression" anymore because he did not put Orton in the hospital last week, a decision he will regret on Sunday.
Orton says he did not get lazy as a "Boring!" chant breaks out among the crowd. He says all the motivation he needs is hanging there and that Cena will be the man whose image is that he lost the most important match in the history of the WWE. Orton points to the various champions and lists his victories over them before he tells Cena that everything he worked for will be gone on Sunday.
Cena says it's funny that Orton mentioned "work" and pulls over Daniel Bryan. The crowd goes nuts with another Yes! chant. Cena asks him a few questions and points out that Bryan has had to work for everything he has in WWE. He says the reason people cheer for Bryan is because he earns it, while Orton has been handed everything.
Cena says no one could ever touch Orton because the higher-ups liked him. He says all Orton has ever done is hide behind Triple H and Stephanie and yet he has the balls to say he is better than anyone in the ring. He points out Orton's behavior problems in and out of the ring and hypes the match. He says if Orton wins, maybe he can say he has fulfilled his potential.
Cena points to various champions and talks about his interactions with them. He then shakes Bryan's hand and says he looks forward to a fair rematch if he wins. He tells Orton he wanted to make a statement last week that when the chips are down he can be just as brutal as him. Cena extends his hand to Orton and says the last thing anyone will want to hear is another Randy Orton excuse. They shake as the belts ascend and the two start to brawl.
The champions pull them apart and Orton shoves Punk, so Punk fights back. Triple H tosses Punk away, but Punk gets back up and decks Hunter. Shawn Michaels superkicks Punk, so Bryan attacks HBK. Orton goes for an RKO but Bryan shoves Orton, who knocks over Stephanie by accident. Triple H Pedigrees Orton as Cena and Kane help pick up Stephanie. Orton has a stunned look on his face from the turnbuckle as Cena, Triple H, Stephanie and Kane stare at him as the show goes off the air.
