From there, we hear the familiar theme music of "The Viper."
The music cuts and Randy Orton is seen standing in the center of the ring holding a microphone, smiling as the crowd goes crazy. The crowd chanting, "Randy! Randy!" and he jumps on the turnbuckle and poses, then jumps down and grabs the mic again, welcoming all the fans to Monday Night Raw.
"I would like to invite a specific WWE Superstar out to this ring, right now. AJ Styles get yo ass out here!"
"I might as well hit him with the three letters in wrestling entertainment, R. K..." he's interrupted as the music sounds in the arena and AJ Styles is standing on the stage at the top of the ramp. Styles makes his way down the ramp, stopping outside of the ring to stare down Orton before entering the ring. The crowd boos.
Styles begins, "Why did you call me out here? To brag? You gonna pretend to have another knee injury?" Styles continues, "Maybe you didn't watch last week on RAW when I, AJ Styles, hit the sweetest RKO for the win! It was beautiful. Many people said it was probably the best RKO they've ever seen." The crowd laughs and boos again. Orton smirks at Styles.
Drew McIntyre interrupts AJ Styles in the middle of his rant about RKO's. McIntyre says he's looking for bigger and better now, and he's looking to have an RKO-measuring contest. Drew says his Claymore is bigger. Orton then drops the mic. Drew declares he will win the Rumble, and tonight he will prove it. He says they can talk all night, or everyone can shut up and have a Triple Threat Match.

Heyman's words can barely be heard over the booing.
Heyman continues on, "My client Brock Lesnar would win the Royal Rumble match. I told you it wasn't a prediction, it was a spoiler. My spoilers prove one thing, there's a streak going on in the WWE, probably the greatest streak of all time. But that streak was conquered at Wrestlemania 30 by Brock Lesnar. You know what the new streak is? My spoilers. My spoilers are about Brock Lesnar's matches."
Heyman continues bragging on Lesnar saying he will dominate and conquer the WWE universe ending by saying, "anyone that doubts my spoilers, only the truth flows from my mouth, and that truth..." he's interrupted by R-Truth's music sounding in the arena.
R-Truth makes his way down the ramp and into the ring, smiling at the fans, his face turning serious as soon as he steps foot in the ring. "I'm glad you called me out here Paul. I'm about to set it off. I saw something on TV about Royal Rumble. You may be the most favorite to win, but my childhood hero John Cena (does the "You Can't See Me" gesture) taught me to never give up. So for the first time ever, your 24/7 48/7 7-22 I-95 South and now Lexington, KY European TV champion is officially declaring the Royal Rumble."
Truth continues, "Now, with that being said, it ain't the size of the dog. It's the size of the fight in the dawg. You may be a big, biigg, biiigggg man, but I KNOW you will go flying over that top rope, Paul Heyman!" Even Brock Lesnar begins laughing in the ring. Heyman says, "Lookie here bong hit. I ain't in the Royal Rumble match. You step in the match, you are going in with Brock Lesnar!" Truth continues, "Wait a minute, so you not in it? OK, ok, my bad. For the first time ever, the 24 7 48/7 7-22 I-95 South and now Lexington, KY European TV champion is officially UN-declaring the Royal Rumble match."
Truth continues, "I wasn't listening, you talk a lot Paul. You keep going on and on and on... (fakes snoring)" the crowd cheering. Truth continues, "And you be giving away all the spoilers, I don't like spoilers. I don't want Brock to take me to Soup Falls City." Heyman says, "It's Suplex City! Su-Plex. You're not funny, nobody likes you!" Truth says, "I got one question for you Brock, What's up?!" Truth does a split and his music sounds.
Truth does a heel kick and is about to exit, Lesnar hits the F-5 on R-Truth. Heyman exits the ring. Lesnar grabs R-Truth's championship belt and throws it on Truth.
