He said Batista and him used to be on the same level in Evolution, but now Orton is simply better. He called himself "the main attraction of Raw." Triple H and Stephanie came out to the stage, and questioned why Orton is letting the fans get to him and why he keeps saying the same things each week about beating impossible odds. They questioned him as the face of WWE and said they may need to put their faith in someone else, so they booked Orton vs. Daniel Bryan for tonight's main event. Hunter started some "Yes!" chants with the crowd as Orton looked irritated.
