Orton compares himself to The Fiend and how he doesn’t need to wear a mask, and says when his time comes, he will stare the devil in the face and let him know that the most evil son of a b—h has come home. But in the meantime, he will be knocking on the door of the Firefly Fun House, waiting and wondering just exactly who is going to let him in. The Fun House music interrupts as we see Wyatt waving on the big screen.
Wyatt says it’s so nice of Orton to join him tonight. Bliss would’ve joined them tonight but she’s not here since Orton was so mean to her last week. Orton says he’s the last person Wyatt wants to play games with. Wyatt goes to a “Let’s Get Randy” game show parody. The prizes are a brand new Crucix, the one we’ve seen Wyatt and Bliss use as of late, and the carcass of Friendship Frog. The contestants are Mercy The Buzzard, Ramblin’ Rabbit and Huskus The Pig. The question is how should Orton be punished at WWE TLC.

Orton says he will play games if Wyatt wants to, but he wants a match tonight. Not with The Fiend because he will see him at TLC… Orton wants to face Wyatt tonight. Wyatt accepts. The Fun House music starts back up as Wyatt waves goodbye to Orton. Orton looks on and smirks in the ring.
