Wade Barrett def. Randy Orton
Prior to the start of Randy Orton’s match with Wade Barrett, Alberto Del Rio — who appeared ready to join the SmackDown announce team for the pending showdown — suddenly attacked The Viper with the help of Ricardo Rodriguez, leaving his adversary on the ringside floor.
Despite this assault, the match between Orton and Barrett would carry on as scheduled, igniting a brutal firestorm of a contest. But just as The Viper looked to have gained a decisive advantage over his opponent, Del Rio and Rodriguez reemerged, bringing yet another distraction to the table. As Orton proceeded to headbutt The Mexican Aristocrat’s personal ring announcer off the apron — Barrett seized the opportunity, rolling up WWE’s Apex Predator up for the three-count.
But while Del Rio was bragging in the back on his persistent belief that he was WWE’s “new Apex Predator,” Orton caught up with him, igniting a fierce backstage brawl that stretched all the way to catering — as the two fierce Superstars destroyed everything in sight. In the midst of the chaos, collateral damage inevitably took shape, as Rodriguez found himself covered with food and Matt Striker got “just desserts.”
As a result on the out-of-control confrontation between The Viper and The Mexican Aristocrat, it was later announced that Randy Orton will take on Alberto Del Rio in a Falls Count Anywhere Match, this Tuesday on SuperSmackDown LIVE on Syfy from Birmingham, England.
