- Kofi Kingston makes his entrance in the ring. Jack Swagger makes his return to the ring.
Kofi Kingston vs. Jack Swagger
Swagger hits a double-leg takedown and takes control of Kofi early. Kofi tries to come back with speed but Swagger keeps him grounded. Swagger kind of looks like a young Hulk Hogan right now. Kofi hits a crossbody out of the corner but Swagger kicks out and takes his head off with a clothesline. Kofi fights back with a monkey-flip and creates some space. Kofi hits a flurry and Swagger bumps around for him. Kofi drops the Boom but Swagger counters the Trouble in Paradise.
Kofi dropkicks Swagger to the floor and flies off the steel steps with a clothesline. Swagger moves at ringside and Kofi's shin connects with the announce booth as he attempts Trouble in Paradise. Swagger sends Kofi in and locks in the ankle lock as Kofi taps.
Winner by submission: Jack Swagger
- Security tries to get Del Rio to calm down in the parking lot. A bus appears in the distance, approaches and parks. Del Rio hides. We see Big Show's big head peaking out of the windshield to see if the coast is clear. He gets out and Del Rio runs at him with the bat. Show moves and Del Rio smashes a car. Show pulls out the driver in an attempt to escape but Del Rio smashes the driver window. Show actually stands on top of the car to avoid Del Rio. Del Rio takes his legs out from under him and mounts him for shots. Show pushes him off and begs off. They dance around the car and Show runs and gets into another one and speeds away as Del Rio yells. This is one of the more realistic 'fights' they have ever produced. Great performance by both, especially Big Show.
- We return to footage of Rock and Punk from RAW.
- Dolph Ziggler makes his way to the ring with Big E and AJ.
- Back from a commercial as Del Rio tells a neck-braced Ricardo that he needs to stay back tonight. He tells Ricardo to trust him. Lilian introduces Del Rio.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Alberto Del Rio
They lock up and trade armbars. Del Rio hits a slam in the corner but misses with the moonsault and lands on his feet. Del Rio launches Ziggler in the air and drops him on his face. Del Rio hits the post in the corner and Ziggler hits a big DDT and a neckbreaker. We get dueling 'Lets Go Ziggler' and 'Ziggler Sucks' chants. Del Rio hits a German Suplex to create some space. AJ distracts the ref from the apron and Big E pushes Del Rio off the top; Ziggler gets 2. Del Rio dropkicks Big E through the ropes and plants Ziggler's face on the mat.
Big E gets on the apron and the ref throws him out as we go to break.
- Ziggler hits a beautiful dropkick for a 2 as we return to action. Ziggler gets hung up in the corner and Del Rio brings him down in a suplex off the 2nd. They trade shots toe-to-toe. Del Rio turns it up as Ziggler bumps for him. Del Rio connects with a loud kick to the face of Ziggler for 2. Del Rio calls for the end as the crowd chants, 'Si.' Ziggler counters and hits his finisher but Del Rio kicks out. AJ looks on from ringside.
Del Rio riles-up the crowd again and goes up top but Ziggler meets him with a dropkick in mid-air. It's funny how they kick out of moves like that but get pinned from a so much less only seconds later. Del Rio counters the Zig Zag into the cross arm-breaker and Ziggler taps.
Winner by submission: Alberto Del Rio
Big Show appears on the screen and he has Ricardo hostage. He says if Del Rio doesn't stay put, he will snap Ricardo like a piece of straw. Ricardo begs as Show mocks him. Show says he's going to let him go and he hits the KO. I'm sure Ricardo has a concussion by now; this has got to be at least the 3rd time Show has knocked him out in 2 months.
Del Rio sprints to the back to check on Ricardo. Del Rio and a referee frantically call for a doctor over Ricardo's body as SmackDown goes off the air.
