Orton picked up the chair and hit Cena across the back. Cena screamed, and Orton had the referee ask him. Cena refused again. Orton went for a chairshot, but Cena ducked and Orton hit the ringpost. Cena backdropped Orton, then grabbed the key from around Orton's neck. Cena uncuffed himself from the connector, then cuffed himself to Orton.
Orton punched Orton and rammed him into the ringside tables over and over, then rolled him into the ring. Cena hit a back suplex and pounded Orton on the mat. Cena pulled Orton to his feet and went for an Attitude Adjustment, but Orton wriggled out and hit an RKO. Orton saw that the keys were on the mat, and dragged the unconscious Cena towards them. Cena woke up and pulled to keep Orton from reaching the key. Cena put Orton in an STF variation, using the handcuffs to pull Orton's own arm around his neck. Orton quickly said "I Quit" to end the match at the twenty minute mark. Cena got on the mic and proclaimed "I did not quit".
