We go to the ring and out comes WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. We see how he got hit by Randy Orton’s RKO last week on RAW.
Drew takes the mic and says Orton has been preying on vulnerability for 20 years. He mentions last week’s attack and thanks Orton for the lesson learned. Drew says it will never happen again. Drew says he knows that motivated Orton last week. He knows Orton is just s motivated to take the WWE Title as he is to keep it.
Drew goes on and mentions how Vince McMahon once told them both that they would be the future of WWE. Drew says Orton had everything handed to him and spoon fed to him because of his dad. He also mentions Evolution and how they always cleaned up for Orton and his mistakes. Drew admits to his own mistakes and says he deserves to get fired years ago. He says Orton left enough of his own crap behind him and should’ve been fired long before Drew was, which sounds like a reference to Orton defecating in people’s bags. Drew keeps on until the music interrupts and out comes Orton with WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair.
Orton interrupts Drew and admits he should’ve been fired multiple times. Orton says he was given chances over and over because he is the chosen one and the best ever. Orton challenges Drew to come up with something original against him. Drew lays the title down in the middle of the ring. Drew says he thinks Orton represents everything wrong in WWE. Drew recalls how The Undertaker talked about pulling Orton to his level in The Last Ride documentary. Drew says Orton has never done the same to an up & coming wrestler in WWE, he’s never passed on the knowledge that legends passed on to Orton. Drew recalls Orton walking past him in catering years ago. Drew’s life was crumbling, professionally and personally. His mother was sick and he was far from home. Orton could’ve said something and it would’ve went a long way but he didn’t. Drew doesn’t see a leader in front of him, he sees a selfish prick. Orton is still looking on from the stage with Flair. Drew now goes on about how he’s going to have receipts from current and some former roster members at SummerSlam, and he’s going to destroy Orton, for everyone Orton has kicked in the head over the years and done wrong. Drew’s music hits as they stare each other down.
