Bryan says the doubt made him who he is, and Orton will never understand how it is because he's always been given everything. Bryan says he knows he can beat Orton, and deep down Orton and HHH know it, otherwise they wouldn't put him in gauntlet matches and beat him up. He says they know what the fans know, and Orton might have the genetics of a champion, but he has no heart and he just acts like a big dog. HHH cuts him off and says he is too angry, but his anger is misdirected because Bryan should be mad at Big Show, who watches him get beat up every week. He says Show stands and watches the attacks, but Bryan can get his anger out in tonight's main event when he faces Big Show one on one.
HHH and Orton are shown walking backstage bragging about making Bryan and Big Show fighting, then they run into Cody Rhodes and say hello. Cody says tonight's main event should be good if no one gets involved, and HHH asks him what exactly he means by that. Cody says with all due respect, Orton versus Bryan is good for business, then HHH tells him that he decides what is good for business, not him. HHH says Cody is probably busy planning his wedding, one that he didn't get invited to, but he did get him a wedding present, a match with Orton tonight. Cody says it's a honor, but HHH says Cody needs to win or he won't be here much longer, and there's a lot riding on him coming through.
