: Big Show’s music hit and the former World Heavyweight Champion made his way down. Show said that neither member of Team Hell No will win the Rumble match and this Sunday he would squash Alberto Del Rio like a bug.

Sheamus v. Wade Barrett (Intercontinental Champion)

: Sheamus tried to attempt a comeback but Wade knocked Sheamus over the top rope and began to celebrate. Barrett continued to punish Sheamus from the apron area.

Natalya w/ Great Khali & Hornswoggle v. Rosa Mendes

: Punk said only one thing can take away all of his hard work and being champion for over 432 days. The crowd began to chant ‘Rocky, Rocky!’ but Punk said No, The Rock was a man and he wasn’t afraid of him. It was The Shield that could destroy everything he has worked for.
: Punk called out The Shield, and out came Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. Punk told the members of The Shield to stay out of his way because he is the best in the world and he doesn’t need anyone’s help.
: The Rock’s music hit and out he came to confront CM Punk one more time before the Royal Rumble. Rock told Punk he is going to lock him and drop him from the Rock Bottom. Rock said Punk’s final thought would not be how he is the best in the world but it’s over.

: Bryan took down Sandow then tagged in Kane. Kane continued the work of his partner and eliminated Sandow. Big Show was in next. His aggrisivve attitude was helpful as he beat down Kane and knocked him over the top. Kane couldn’t return to the ring and was counted out being eliminated first.
