Randy Orton beat King Sheamus and Wade Barrett in a Steel Cage Match tonight on Raw to become the No. 1 Contender to the WWE Championship. He will face The Miz at the Royal Rumble on January 30.
Due to Barrett’s loss in the match, he has been banished from The Nexus and CM Punk is officially the leader of the group. Earlier in the evening, Punk offered the Englishman his opportunity to compete in the Steel Cage Match. Were Barrett to win, he would remain leader of The Nexus. However, were he to lose, he would be banished from the group forever.
