He appreciates the competition, but he thinks Regal has made a huge mistake. He’s a little messed up right now. He’s gearing up for SS. He’s gearing up for Hell In A Cell. He’s gearing up for Taker. He explains what Hell In A Cell is. He says he’s going to be locked in a 20 foot high cell with a guy he doesn’t like, who doesn’t like him. Weapons are not only allowed, they’re welcomed.

Orton has to state the rules again.
HBK says Orton got himself intentionally disqualified at CS.
Orton says he was defending himself.
HBK says the reason Orton got the super kick banned was because Orton knew number six would be at SS.
Orton says he knows it about revenge. Orton says he’s going to win because HBK is a hot head. It’s his instinct to use the super kick.
HBK says he likes that train of thought. Without the kick, what is HBK? If HBK can hit the kick, he can beat anybody. He’s not sure if that’s a compliment or a criticism. He’s not a one hit wonder with an axe to grind. Maybe everything he’s done has been a fluke. Maybe it’s all be luck. What a novel idea fro HBK to walk in to SS and win with a wrestling move, or better yet, as submission hold. He’s not sure he’s technically sound for that type of stuff. How’s it feel to loose the title to HBK when he didn’t have the option of using the super kick. He doesn’t need it. All hee needs is the memory of what Orton did six months ago when Orton tried to kick his head off. The memory of the tears in his wife’s eyes. The memory of Orton trying to end his livelihood. “HBK” chants.
Orton says he can tell his wife to have the same feelings after SS.
