Triple H says that they are considering Daniel Bryan for the face of the WWE, but they are considering all member of the Elimination Chamber match, as well. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton cuts them off and says he wants to apologize. He knows that to get what he wants and make them happy, then he needs to bring back The Viper and will start by beating John Cena tonight. Stephanie McMahon asks why and Orton says because he was first called the face of the WWE in this arena six months earlier at SummerSlam, so he wants to fulfill that and get everything he deserves, such as interviews and endorsements, because he is the heart and soul of the company and all of his opponents, including Batista, are less than him.
Daniel Bryan comes out and calls Orton a different body part than face. Stephanie says she does not appreciate the interruption and he must make an appointment, but Bryan says he has been looking for Kane but can't find him. He says Kane tried to do the Authority's dirty work but he still beat Orton last week. He demands a match with Kane tonight, but Stephanie says he is on leave and will be evaluated. Bryan mocks this and asks who is evaluating the Authority.
Orton screams at Bryan to show some respect, but Bryan stirs the pot by reminding Triple H of when Orton kissed Stephanie a few years ago. Orton says he will punt Bryan's head off if Triple H asks him to, but HHH says that Bryan has the night off and that keeping him out of the ring is best for business. Bryan chants "No!" at them while they leave the ring.
