Randy Orton & Drew McIntyre Segment 

Randy Orton: I wanted to come out here and reflect. I wanted to come out here and remember. You know, ever since i’ve been in this company, i’ve heard about the Hell In A Cell, and I have heard that anyone who competes inside Hell In A Cell leaves a small piece of them behind. Now, i’ve had seven matches inside this structure, and I have never left any piece of myself behind. If anything, I have just understood myself better, each and every time I walked out that door. I understood what I was truly capable of. This Sunday, I face Drew McIntyre for the eight time inside Hell In A Cell, but as I sit here, I remember, I remember standing toe to toe right here with The World’s Strongest Man, I remember surviving The Celtic Warrior, right here, I remember mutilating Jeff Hardy right about here, and I remember beating Daniel Bryan, right about here.

I remember facing John Cena, twice. I remember becoming WWE Champion, twice. But the most important thing I remember about Hell In A Cell, despite what Drew McIntyre says, and what he says is that I have never earned a damn thing in my entire life. But despite that, I remember standing in this hell, and looking the dead man in the eye, and earning his respect, right here. Now, every name I just listed, we can call agree, ladies and gentlemen, that if they’re not already hall of famers, they will one day be in hall of fame. And when I think of the hall of fame, I think of what word would be synonymous with the hall of fame. And the first word that comes to mind, and i’m sure you can agree, is legend. But the word, legend, it gets thrown around these days, rather loosely. The word, legend, I don’t know, there’s legends, and then there’s legendary moments. Now, it was a legendary moment, Drew, when you beat Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania and became WWE Champion.
