WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton joins his former Evolution partners in the ring and demands a No Disqualification match against Bryan to end the possibility of a Triple Threat main event at Wrestlemania 30. Batista demands that Triple H "fixes" the situation with Bryan before Triple H tells both of them that there will be a Triple Threat match in the main event should the WWE exec win his match against Bryan, with the WWE exec inserting himself into the Wrestlemania 30 main event. Batista then ate an RKO while distracted by Triple H, as the champion sent a message to his pay-per-view challenger.

The Funkadactyls vs WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee & Tamina

Bray Wyatt (w/ Luke Harper & Erick Rowan) vs Kofi Kingston

Winner: Bray Wyatt
Triple H ended the show, wanting a word with Daniel Bryan, telling him that despite everything he has put him through since the summer of 2013, he respects that he has survived the gaunlet set in front of him and is still standing strong. Stephanie McMahon stormed the ring, with police in tow, to arrest Bryan, yelling at her husband for not only taking the match but for inserting himself into the Wrestlemania 30 main event.

"The King of Kings" stomped down Bryan while he was hemmed up, with McMahon also helping slap Bryan around before her husband nailed Bryan with a Pedigree to end the show.
