Randy Orton’s music interrupts and the pants wearing streak is over at one show. Miz says it is good to see Randy and he welcomes Randy to MizTV. Randy says he was in the back and he heard Miz’ opening monologue and since it sounded like Miz was talking about him, he came out. Randy says Miz was wonderful on the mic and he showed that he is an expert at playing with himself. Miz says Randy is like the Blair Witch Project. He wants to know why Randy interrupted when he has a match in four weeks against Brock Lesnar. Randy reminds Miz he made a good living killing legends. He is going to Suplex City and it will be a long bumpy road. It will only take one RKO to send Brock’s ass to Viperville.
Miz says it is a shame that Randy accepted the match with Lesnar because SummerSlam will be his last. Randy says SummerSlam won’t be his last match, but it also doesn’t have to be his first match back. Why not have his first match back tonight? Why not have that return take place against the Intercontinental Champion? Miz asks everyone if they want to see that match and after they appear interested in the match, he says no. You don’t just get a chance at the Intercontinental Title. Randy says the title does not have to be on the line, so why not something between friends. Miz says they are friends since he beat Randy for the WWE Title. He says he is not falling for Randy’s tricks. Randy asks Miz if he is afraid of getting his ass whipped in front of Miz’ wife. Maryse tells Randy how dare you talk about her husband like that Her husband accept that challenge.

Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho interviewing Randy Orton
Big pop for Orton. He said for the last nine months, he’s been enjoying his time with his wife and his kids but returning to the ring made him realize what’s been missing – being out here in front of tghe people. He said that he’s enjoying it so much he doesn’t care that he has to share it with Chris Jericho. Jericho said he should be thanking him because Orton gets to make his return on the Highlight Reel with the best in the world at what he does. He said that just by being in the ring with Jericho, Orton’s being put on a different level. Orton said he’s in a good mood but that could change really quick. Jericho mocked the RKO out of nowhere and said that if Orton isn’t careful, he might get hit with a Codebreaker out of nowhere.
Jericho said he’s going to catch Orton up on what’s happened since he’s been gone. He reviewed the brand split and that Orton is going to Smackdown while he’s going to Raw, kissing up to Stephanie McMahon in the process. He said the WWE champion is a barbarian who put 69 tacks into his flesh. He started whining but said it wasn’t about him, but about Randy. He said he wanted to give Randy something that he needed to help him against Brock Lesnar at Summerslam – the gift of Jericho. Orton began knocking Jericho’s haircut, saying he thought for a second he was on the Ellen Degeneres show because of it. The fans chanted, “Ellen.” Jericho told the fans to shut up and warned Orton that Lesnar was a force of nature who was coming for Orton. He showed all sorts of footage of Lesnar. Jericho talked up what a badass Lesnar was. Orton said he asked for the match because what would it mean that after nine months, he came back and beat Fandango. That was a shot at Jericho, who once lost to Fandango at Wrestlemania.
Jericho said that was cute but Lesnar was going to kick Orton’s ass and take him to Suplex City. Orton said he’s well aware and he knows Lesnar is going to suplex him over and over to get to Suplex City but it only takes one RKO to get to Viperville “no enhancement needed.” Jericho said that something tells him Orton is going to pay for that little comment. Jericho said that Brock said that Orton has been avoiding him for 15 years, that he was a coward and was going to tear his shoulder apart. Jericho passed on that Lesnar said Orton was a stupid idiot. He mocked Orton and acted like Orton wasn’t going to do a “damn thing” to him. He told Orton to go worry about Lesnar and to stay out of his business. Orton teased a RKO but then acted like he was just kidding, then snapped it. Good segment. Orton looked the happiest he’d been on camera in a LOOOOOONG time.
WWE superstar Randy Orton’s next match will be against Ryan Phillippe on Shooter.
Orton, who is currently away from wrestling due to an injury, will guest-star on an episode of the new USA series. The former WWE Champion will play James Richards, an ex-Navy SEAL who now leads the militia group Tree of Liberty. An investigation by Bobby Lee Swagger (Phillippe) exposes Richards as something other than the patriot he appears to be.

#19 Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton — Fatal 4-Way WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match (WWE Payback)
For a match that had to juggle intra-Authority squabbling, personal rivalries reaching their, ahem, “Apex,” and the first official instance of The Shield against itself, it kept each ball in the air with a mix of intrigue (will Kane screw Seth over?), surprises (Dean vs. Roman!) and, ultimately, satisfaction (Seth retains!). Plus, we got a Shield mini-reunion, if only to Triple Powerbomb Orton through a table. Was it a tease for their eventual reformation way, way down the line? Hard to fathom. But for one night, we all believed again.
