“There is nothing like a challenge to bring out the best in man”-Sean Connery

We started with a preview about Rady Orton’s interesting situation. Several men are after his WWE title, including Drew McIntyre, The Miz and “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt.

Roll the opening montage!

Ramdy Orton strolled out from the back to open the live portion of the hshow. The announcers discussed the pressure The Viper was under. Randy said that eight days ago he proved he was the Best of the Best…no, wait…he is just THE Best. Randy dismissed all allegations that he was handed everything and protected from on high. He said he was where he was because of how good he is. Randy is no longer the Legend Killer. He is now simply…A Legend. Orton said he knew he had a Bulls-Eye on his back. He gave out an Open Challenge for anyone to come out a nd face him.

He got…Alexa Bliss. I like her new “Fiend-ette” look. Randy circled the diminutive Diva. She was quiet at first and said he could be HERE. The lights went red and the screeching music kicked in. Randy got Claymored by Drew, instead of getting attacked by Wyatt. Drew promised to make Randy’s life “Pure Hell”. Miz and Morrison rushed down and a ref rushed out. Miz cashed in…
