tearing Del Rio apart, Ziggler would not have cashed in and won the World Title. Swagger is a Real American and a Real Champion, not ZIggler, and Del Rio certainly doesn't deserve a second chance. Del Rio initially fights off Swagger when he hits the ring. Langston puts himself between an eager Del Rio and Ziggler. Swagger drags Del Rio to the post, however, and bashes his leg before putting Del Rio in the Patriot Lock. Officials pull Swagger off, but the damage looks to be done as Ziggler and company simply look on.
The tag champs, Kane and "El Beardo Magnifico" Daniel Bryan, are WALKING to the ring, as they are in action, NEXT!
Swagger's assault on Del Rio is recapped, and we see Del Rio being worked on in the Trainer's Room.

As Team Hell No celebrates, we find out next Ryback's reasoning for shell-shocking John Cena NEXT!
We're given a recap of Ryback shell-shocking Cena. We go to Ryback, who starts out by bringing up WM 29, how Cena was at the top of his career, finding redemption and the WWE Championship by beating the Rock, and Ryback finding himself at his lowest point. That being said, each of them only have one way to go, Cena down, Ryback up. Ryback says Cena must be wondering why. Ryback said he had no choice after everything he's been through. Ryback says he found himself staring up from the bottom of the ladder again and that wasn't going to happen. Ryback talks about Cena bring a friend to him last year and even giving him his title shot when injured. Ryback says he isn't a sidekick. If Cena is Superman, say hello to the kryptonite. Ryback asks Cena where he was when he was attacked by The Shield and robbed of the WWE Title, when he backed Cena up against the Shield every time. Ryback says Cena got lucky at the Royal Rumble when he eliminated him to get the WrestleMania spot. Ryback says he is the biggest threat to Cena's title reign, ever. Ryback...rules.
Despite being a little long-winded and the small "Boring" chants I heard, this is Ryback's best promo thus far. Cuts straight to the heart of the matter and brings up Cena's tunnel-vision going into WrestleMania.
