Triple H tells him that Daniel Bryan is injured and can't compete. He says he can't give him a shot at the title tonight. Triple H says that he would probably choke in the match anyways. Triple H apologizes to Batista, and says that things are a little stressful around here right now. Triple H asks Batista if this is how he wants to be remembered, as the man that couldn't beat The Shield. Triple H says it ends when The Shield are no more. He tells Batista that when that happens, he will get everything he wants. He says nobody is getting anything until that happens. Batista says that he understands, and he quits. Triple H tells Batista to get back in the ring, and asks him if he is gonna run back to Hollywood. Triple H says that he is finished, and he will never be brought back. Triple H tosses the mic down.
