Drew says he is thankful for family and friends. He is thankful to his fans. He is thankful for Thunderdome. Drew asks who wants to see him Claymore Randy Orton's head off to regain the title? Drew says you have to work harder and then throw them up and tell you to read between the lines.

Drew says he gave the head of the table a visit on Friday. He wanted to let Roman know he shouldn't worry about Randy Orton at Survivor Series. Roman only cares about himself and he put himself so high on a pedestal, everyone looks like ants.

Drew says he will win tonight and then Claymore Roman back to Earth on Sunday.

Randy Orton is in the TitanTron and he says he hears Drew talking about what he is thankful for. Randy says he will talk about what he is thankful for. He says he is thankful for being a fourteen time WWE Champion. He is also thankful that fine for putting his hands on Adam Pearce did not faze him. Randy says he has been getting fined for 20 years.

Orton says he is still here and he is still the best because he is the greatest wrestler ever. I am going to win like I did at Hell in a Cell.

I will walk out of here tonight, still the WWE Champion.

Drew tells Randy he forgot to mention the three most dangerous letters in WWE. We have been doing it so long we are finishing our own sentences. Tonight, I will not be crashing off a cell, my foot will be crashing through your skull and I will become WWE Champion.

Miz says nothing is keepng them from cashing in a few favors to be ringside for the WWE Championship match.

Drew says he will not stop from doing to them what he has done so many times before.

Miz says Orton would accept the possibility of change is endless. The WWE Championship could change hands and the hands holding the title could be his. Miz asks Morrison why did Bray Wyatt hide in the Firefly Fun House last week? Bray is afraid of them. Miz says that Drew hasn't accepted the fact about how Miz can cash in at any time.

Drew says Randy can be a patient man but I cannot.

Woods tells them to take the bass out of their voices and stop using their outside voices. Kofi tells Porter that everything you said is a lie.
