Randy Orton def. Damien Sandow

One week after running back to the dressing room and losing to World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus via count-out, Damien Sandow interrupted a scheduled match to criticize Booker T and the WWE Universe. While he insisted that the GM had put him into a contest for which he was not prepared, he berated fans on social media for calling him a "coward" and "craven" throughout the week for his actions on SmackDown.

Randy Orton soon interrupted Sandow’s tirade, informing the self-professed "Intellectual Savior of the Masses" that he had convinced Booker T to change his impending match from his original opponent to Sandow himself. Just as the bout began, however, Mr. Money in the Bank, Dolph Ziggler, joined the SmackDown announce team.

Though Sandow continued his streak of avoiding a pinfall loss in WWE with an impressive offense, he chose to once again retreat from his match, once The Viper gained the advantage and was about to hit him with the RKO. As a result, Orton won the match by count-out.

Blocking Ziggler’s exit from the ringside area after the bell, WWE’s Apex Predator wasted little time initiating a fierce post-match brawl with The Showoff. This went on until Sandow re-emerged to attack Orton from behind. Before the WWE Universe could blink, The Viper turned the tide, introducing Sandow to the business end of a ring-shaking RKO afterall!
