Drew McIntyre, Keith Lee, and Adam Pearce Segment 

Drew McIntyre: Randy Orton broke my jaw. But i’m back. And it doesn’t take a rocket science to figure out he intended to do so much more, so I can consider myself lucky that it’s only a fractured jaw. Randy Orton should also consider himself lucky his head is still attached to his body after the three claymores I gave him, last week. Everyone’s been asking me for a medical update. Drew, what’s going on? So, i’m gonna tell you, i’m gonna address this once, and its the last i’m gonna talk about it. WWE medical personal told me to take some time off. It’s a non-displaced fracture. And, if I did that, I would have to forfeit my WWE Championship, so I told them, no. One bad strike to the jaw could displace that fracture, then my mouth would be wired shut, and that’s just fine, because I would rather leave the Thunderdome every single week in an ambulance than to ever give up my championship.

Hey, Randy, maybe you could ask the nurse there to turn up the volume, so you can hear this part. You and I have both taken rides in ambulances, recently, because of the WWE Championship. Well, it’s seems appropriate that the next time we compete, somebody takes a ride in an ambulance for the WWE  Championship. So, what i’m proposing is that at Clash Of Champions, it will be Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton For The WWE Championship In An Ambulance Match, because clearly, mate, the rules don’t apply to us anymore. Maybe wishful thinking, come to think about it, but Randy actually might not make Clash Of Champions because, quite frankly I kicked him in the head three times last week as hard as I possibly could, with The ClayMore, the most deadly weapon in all of sports and entertainment.

It’s funny, I actually created that move by mistake. In this very ring, a few years ago, I was wearing some tight leather pants. I ran to kick my opponent in the head, and I realized that the crotch was gonna split in the pants. As you know, I’m Scottish, and I don’t know if you know this, but we’re kind of allergic to underpants, so that crotch splits, it’s an international incident. So what I decided to do was to kick out left my leg, knock my opponent out, knock myself silly, and I realized if I could developed this maneuver, I got something special in my hands. I developed it. In fact, I’ve actually got a picture right here, of some of the victims of The ClayMore. Oh my god, the joke is on me, it hurts to smile right now. Look at them right there, look at that murders row. Dolph, you’re on there too, I know you’re on commentary right now, you better say nice things about me.

Adam Pearce: Excuse me, Drew, excuse me for just a second. Pardon for the interruption, I didn’t mean to step in on the fun, but let’s get this down to what it really comes to, and that’s the fact that Randy Orton injuries and the extensive severity of them is unknown. What we do know, though, it’s highly unlikely that Randy will be here tonight. And, listen, we could be saying the same thing, come Clash of Champions.

Drew McIntyre: My heart bleeds for him.

Adam Pearce: The situation is this, Randy Orton may not be able to face you in any kind of WWE Championship Match, and that changes the gravity of tonight. So now your match against Keith Lee, becomes about so much more than bragging rights between old friends. Because, if Keith Lee beats you tonight, and Randy can’t make it to Clash Of Champions, then Keith faces you for the WWE Championship.

Drew McIntyre: Who put you in charge, anyway?

Keith Lee walks down to the ring to shake McIntyre’s hand to close the hand.

And, Cedric, we didn’t come here for n explanation because we understand, it is what it is. You joined The Hurt Business. For What? For Money? And after last week, whenever you stabbed me in the back, you see, that hurt more than anything that The Hurt Business has ever done to me, and we were supposed to be brothers, man. So yea, we came out here, but we didn’t come out here to beg you to come back. We ain’t come out here to ask you, why Cedric why? No, you can kick all that to the side.
