The Viper spoke on the mic about how he does what he wants when he wants. However, something’s missing and he hasn’t been able to put a finger on it, until it hit him like a ton of bricks; he wants to become the WWE Champion once again.
He then spoke of McIntyre’s firing from the company and eventual redemption that culminated with the WWE title victory over Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania. However, he addressed the problem he had with McIntyre- The WWE Champion has what he wants.
He ended the segment with a challenge and a warning of an RKO he will never see coming before walking out.

The match has long been reported to be a possibility especially after Edge was put out of commission with an injury. The seeds of the clash have now been planted and it should only be a matter of time before the match is made official.
