610 Screen captures | 12 DigitalsBackstage Orton surveyed the monitor, then Cena walked in and checked out the monitor. Cena said they’re not friends, but now is the time to beat on everyone here on Raw. He started to walk off, then Orton pulled him back and said they turn the tables on Hunter. Orton suggested they take a dive so none of them gets hurt before Mania. Cena said he loves the idea of Orton losing on purpose. He said he’s the WWE champion, so if anyone’s going to lay down tonight, then it should be Cena. Cena quietly said he’s not an idiot or a coward, so he’s not losing on purpose. Orton said maybe Cena didn’t hear him. Cena said he’s not about to listen to the guy who tore his pec, took his title, and kicked his pops in the head! Nice transition from Cena that the crowd cheered. Cena said Orton needs to man up and fight like a man.Suddenly, Hunter stepped in and casually placed his hands on their shoulders. Hunter said there are some new rules that Cena and Orton can only win the match by beating every single wrestler on the roster. Or, the match could end when Cena and Orton are physically unable to continue. Cena just had this great expressionless stare ahead like someone just told him his check didn’t clear the bank. Hunter smiled at both of them, then left.In-ring: Randy Orton came out first for the two-on-17 handicap match. Orton simply paused and stared into the ring before entering. Cena’s music hit and the high-pitched screams were in full effect. The generic Raw music hit, then all of the heels and some of the generic babyfaces came out to the ring. Hey, there’s Jim Duggan. Oh goodness.
