Riley got on the apron as a distraction and Miz backdropped Orton to the mat, then hit a running clothesline on him in the corner, followed by a DDT for the near fall. Miz tried for a Skullcrushing finale but Orton blocked it. Miz countered Orton into a backslide for a near fall, but moments later Orton hit his middle rope DDT on Miz. Orton was ready for the RKO, but Riley got on the apron to distract again. Orton rushed over and punched down Riley, then was quick to catch Miz with the RKO. Orton had the pinfall, but Riley rushed back in to attack, causing the DQ.

Post-match, Orton was fuming, pacing around the ring staring at the ref. He saw Miz recovering down in the corner area. Orton prepared for a punt kick on Miz. He started to run, but Riley was back into the ring yet again. Orton caught him with the RKO. Miz quickly rolled to the outside and staggered up the ramp looking fearful of The Viper.
