Randy claimed that McIntyre may have to hand him the WWE Championship if he is not cleared before the PPV at the end of the month.
An ambulance pulled to the stage and Drew emerged. McIntyre made his way to the ring and hit Orton with the Claymore. McIntyre beat Orton down some more before WWE referees broke it up. Adam Pearce stopped McIntyre backstage and told Drew that he cannot have him on RAW while he is injured. McIntyre said he already accomplished what he wanted to and left. Pearce then told security to be prepared for other unwelcome guests tonight.
