WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Goldust def. WWE Champion Randy Orton via Count-out

Even a Viper knows when retreat is the wisest maneuver, though it’s unlikely Randy Orton was prepared for the consequences when he decided he’d had enough of his Handicap contest against Cody Rhodes & Goldust. The Apex Predator was, to be fair, a victim of matchmaking-by-committee thanks to the power vacuum left in The Authority’s absence, and took a while to get his momentum in a situation he had not prepared for.

The red-hot Rhodes brethren seized early control, with Goldust taking the lion’s share of the time against The Authority’s chosen champion. The Viper slowly turned the tables against The Bizarre One until Cody’s re-entry swung the contest so far in the brothers’ favor that The Viper ditched the match altogether for a Count-out loss. Orton had only made it halfway up the ramp when Big Show – rumored to be too injured to appear – sauntered out and rewarded The Viper’s strategic exit with The World’s Largest Payback, knocking The Apex Predator around before chokeslamming  him through the announcer’s table.
