We see Randy Orton gearing up backstage when Vince McMahon walks up to him. We can’t hear what they say to each other, but they share a nod and a handshake and Vince walks away.
We go to the Superstar Panel with Josh Mathews, Mick Foley, and Booker T. They talk about what happened on the pre-show between The Miz and Kofi Kingston, which is why The Miz isn’t with them right now. Booker says Miz vs. Kingston will happen in just a little while, and Foley says it will be a No Disqualification Match.
