Batista came out to the ring to say ‘thank you’ to the crowd. He said his announcement was that he was saying good bye. He went on for a little while before Randy Orton’s music hit and he came out to the ring. Orton said he was upset over losing the WWE title last night, but he was really thrilled that Batista, the big bad Animal, was going out with a wimpier. He said Dave could save it, because no one cares.
He said Batista wasn’t retiring because of his health, he was retiring because of him. Batista started laughing at him. He said Orton was very predictable. He said the second thing, was that he knew something he didn’t. Batista took off the cast on his arm and unloaded on Orton, chasing him from the ring. He said he wasn’t retiring… he was going to Smackdown.
He said Trish Stratus, the interim GM, gave him a match tonight, and it’d be no holds barred… against Randy Orton.
Guest host Trish Stratus came out to the stage. She put over the job Bob Barker did last week. She said she knew Randy Orton was owed a rematch. She was thinking, at the next pay per view, Cena should face Orton in a Hell in a Cell match.

The Legacy came out to the ring and gave us an ‘are you ready?’. He said this was the dawn of a new era in the WWE. He said the truth was that they didn’t just beat DX, they made them submit. They made DX tap out. Cody asked Ted if he knew who hadn’t made DX tap out. The McMahons, The Undertaker, Rated RKO, The Rock, Steve Austin… the only people who did, were them.
