Winner: Drew McIntyre (by DQ)
There’s no bell nor would I expect one at this point. Ref gets taken out as the OC continues to stomp Drew into oblivion. But into the ring goes Orton with a steel chair and unlikely though it is, he ends up making the save for McIntyre, driving off the OC! They bail and Orton and Drew stand off tensely. Drew is still ready to fight even as Orton stands with the chair. Randy tosses it aside.
Afterwards McIntyre gets a mic but he doesn’t think it works. He says he should’ve Claymored Orton. Says that one was on him. But this Sunday he prays that the two of them are in the Rumble together. He promises to kick Orton’s head off his shoulders and win the Rumble and finally after all this time, he’s going to main event WrestleMania!
