After the match, Drew stands tall as his music hits. We go to replays. Drew says that was fun, wasn’t it? He talks about how a problem with today is people going to social media to complain. Drew says the WWE locker room likes to be cryptic about it because they’re cowards. Drew says he’s going to be straight with his issues. He names Randy Orton and calls Orton to the ring so they can talk about it. We go to commercial.
Back from the break and Drew McIntyre is still in the ring waiting for Randy Orton. We see the chop battle that happened between the two last week. Drew says he can describe what he just saw in 3 words – Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Drew calls Orton out again and this time the music hits. Orton makes his way to the ring.
Orton hits the ring and turns his back on Drew, which angers him. Drew says here’s his problem with Orton – he walks around here like he owns the place, no respect for anyone or the rules, and he always has. Drew gets it, he’s Randy Orton, a future WWE Hall of Famer, but that doesn’t give him the right to speak to Drew like a child. Drew says he was the most ferocious WWE Superstar in the past, but in 2019 he’s only ferocious at posting on social media. Drew says he is the most ferocious in WWE now, bigger and stronger than Orton. Drew goes on about how he and the Claymore Kick are happening now, while Orton and the RKO are old news. Orton says he does how he wants because he’s earned the right. He says Drew hasn’t earned a damn thing. Orton thinks they are cool but if Drew thinks they have a problem, let’s fix it right now. They face off and talk trash to each other. The music interrupts and out comes The OC – Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, and AJ Styles.
AJ takes the mic and just says Orton’s name. AJ is so upset he can’t talk. Gallows and Anderson go on about how Orton ruined AJ’s life by causing him to lose the WWE United States Title to Rey Mysterio. AJ doesn’t care what kind of match it is, he just wants to get his hands on Orton tonight. Drew backs out of this fight and heads to the stage. Orton readies for a fight in the ring as The OC surrounds him.
