Up next, we go a-Fandangoing!
In the ring with Jerry Lawler. King brings up Fandango's success at Mania and the overwhelming social media sensation of "Fandango-ing", from cheerleaders to PETA to fans on the street and on the subway. Lawler introduces Fandango, who dances his way to the ring with his lovely dancer lady. Fandango asks Lawler how his hips are doing and if he can move them. Lawler thinks twice about dancing and goes back to commentary.
Fandango asks the crowd who wants to go Fandangoing with him and gets a decent reaction. Fandango tries to get the crowd hype. Fandango wants the fans to pronounce his name correctly before they all start Fandangoing. Parts of the crowd try to get his theme going but it's nowhere close to last week. Fandango says it's obvious the fans can't pronounce his name correctly. He says they can all go Fandango themselves. Okayyyyyy.
Backstage with Matt Striker, John Cena says he isn't hard to find and will be in the ring waiting for Ryback to come and find him.
Swagger and Colter make their way to the ring as Jack faces the World Champ, NEXT!
According to Teddy Long, if Swagger picks up a win here, he is the #1 Contender for the World Championship. Methinks Booker's not gonna like Teddy going over his head here.
Dolph and Jack feel each other out to start to match. Dolph dodges and weaves out of Swagger's holds, before bitch-slapping Jack, which fires him up. Swagger chases Dolph out of and back into the ring, where Dolph beats down on Swagger. Jack comes back and drives Ziggler back into the corner and delivers knee strikes to Dolph. He nails a clothesline and a shot to the back. Swagger whips Ziggler hard to the corner, but Dolph gets an elbow up. He hits a neckbreaker for two, but Swagger surprises him with the Patriot Lock. Dolph finds the ropes. Swagger drops Ziggler on the ropes, and clothesline him hard to the floor.
Swagger misses a shoulder block into the ring post. Ziggler with a fist to the midsection and a roll up for 2. Swagger with a belly to belly suplex for another pin attempt. More back and forth.
