Randy’s music plays and he makes his way to the stage and then he goes at the Ortonly pace to the ring. Randy tells Bray the voices in his head, they are asking who the hell does this guy think he is. Bray thinks that Randy is damaged because he has staples in his head? Randy says he has been damaged for a long time and that gives him his charm. From one damaged man to another, he tells Bray he has his attention. Bray says that is what he wanted. That is the predator he wanted to see. That is the courage that he appreciates. You are no longer the predator in this situation. You are damaged. You are weak. Bray says that he is the predator now. You should know better than anyone what a predator does best. He kills. At Backlash, he will cut the serpent’s head off and put it on his mantle like the trophy you are.
Randy says he has played that game with many people before and he is still standing here. Randy mentions the scars from Cactus Jack and The Undertaker. Those are not the scars you have to worry about. They are the internal scars and the demons inside. Maybe that is why he half ass respects Bray. He knows Bray has demons too. So Bray Wyatt wants Randy Orton at Backlash. You got it. Randy says fear . . . he is not afraid of Bray. He is not afraid of a man who calls himself a God. Randy says he is not afraid of kicking Bray’s ass . . . right now. Orton goes into the ring and the lights go out.
Randy Orton makes his way to the ring. Randy says he bets people did not expect to see him here tonight, but here he is. He says if you couldn’t tell by the ten staples holding his head together, he was in one hell of a fight on Sunday night against Brock Lesnar. Randy says he knew what he was getting into, but he would have rather been carted out unconscious than what happened. Shane thought by intervening he did the right thing, but their paths will cross again.
Bray Wyatt’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring. Bray asks Randy how is his head. He says he saw what Brock did to him and he saw the look in your eyes change. It went blank. There is nothing like laying there with you head busted open to remember that you are just a man. You are a great man, but just a man. A man who hurts, a man who suffers. A man who dies. Bray says he is not just a man. He is a god. A God can never die. You will find all about it . . . in time.
