We are back and it is time to see what the WWE Universe wants the winner of the match at TLC to be called. They want the person to be known as the Unified Champion.

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, a principal owner of WWE, make their way to the ring down the ramp past chairs, ladders, and tables.

Hunter says in two weeks at TLC, one of the most monumental matches in WWE has been scheduled. For the first time, the WWE Title and the World Title will be hanging above this ring. John Cena and Randy Orton will compete in a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs Match. The winner will walk out, not only as a Champion, but THE Champion.

Stephanie says that there will be one unified undisputed champion. Stephanie says that they guarantee it.

She brings out Randy Orton first. He is followed by John Cena.

Hunter thanks them for coming out to the ring. He tells them they can sit or stand.

Stephanie says that she got the message that Randy is bigger than the WWE.

Hunter says that Randy holds a title with a rich history. From Buddy Rodgers to Bruno Sammartino to Bob Backlund to Steve Austin to the Rock. Stephanie mentions that Triple H has held that title too.

John Cena is the World Champion. A title with a longer lineage. Going back to Gotch, Thesz, O’Connor, Harley Race, Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Undertaker, Shawn Michaels. Stephanie mentions that Triple H held that title too.

This match was not made based on the suggestion of John Cena, but before they could commit to the match, they had to know that both men could carry on as the face of the WWE.

Both men have earned their place in history, but with the whole world watching, they have a moment in time to cement their legacy forever.

Hunter wants them to make it official. Randy signs it first and then John signs it.

Stephanie says that both men have an opportunity to Speak about this historic match up.

Randy goes first. He tells honey that she is right. Some of the biggest names have held these titles. No matter how great they were, Randy says that he is better than all of them, even Hunter. That is why they chose him to be the face of the WWE. They share something in common with the WWE Universe. They don’t like John Cena very much. Randy says that Hunter knows that he is the only one who can beat Cena and shut him up. He will walk out with both titles.

John interrupts and introduces himself to Randy and Randy says that he knows who John is and he reminds John about the time he kicked John’s father in his head.

Randy says that he has been turning the hopes and dreams of so many into nightmares. There is a reason he is called the Apex Predator. The only reason John was put on this Earth was to lose . . .

John tells Randy to shut up. He mocks Randy and he asks where Randy got ‘turning dreams into nightmares’. The only dream he did that to was Triple H because ten years ago Hunter tried to elevate Randy but it failed. John says that Randy is the most gifted WWE Superstar ever. He makes everything in the ring look easy. Randy got cocky, had a bad attitude, and then he got lazy.

Randy was the youngest WWE Champion in history. He was given mentors to lead him but Orton lost to a guy in a t-shirt and ball cap. John says that he is the first to enter and the last to leave. Orton is steaming mad about how he thinks he should be given the opportunities because of his family or his talents.

Randy was given his title while John says that he earned his title. If Randy gets anything from John at TLC, it will be because he earned it. He is not the Apex Predator, he is John Cena.

John tells Randy that he has two options. He can leave or he can make a move. He tells Randy that if he makes one single move to him right here, right now, this audience will be reminded of what a TLC match really is. He will bend a steel chair over his back. He will get close to a ladder, and he will be put through a table. John asks Randall if he is going to step up or step aside.

Orton pushes the chair away and then he tries to flip the table on Cena. Orton and Cena fight to the floor. Cena grabs the ladder and he hits Orton with it.

They go back into the ring and Cena takes too long to get back in the ring and Orton hits Cena with a ladder. Orton hits Cena in the back with the chair. Orton drives the chair into Cena’s abdomen. Orton clears some superfluous items from the ring while he sets up a table.
