R-Truth vs. Fandango
Fandango jumps Truth as he starts and dances a bit before putting on a cravate. Truth comes back with the front suplex and ax kick to send Fandango to the floor. Some splits from R-Truth combine for a score of 62/30. Supposed to be 30/30, but Brodus botched holding up a 10, I guess. Fandango walks out of the match...uh, okay.
Winner: R-Truth (Countout)
We look back at Smackdown with Bryan losing to Ryback and then being attacked by Shield later in the night.
Bryan says he's fine physically. Make that fine period. He talks about how Shield is supposedly all about justice, but no one believes them. He's going to prove what justice is all about, which means he's going to challenge Ryback to a rematch. Ryback pops up immediately and says no to the challenge to "spare" Bryan, saying he's not even half a man if he were 100%. Kane pops up, asks if he's only half a man and says Ryback can fight him if he wants and I think the challenge is accepted.
Ricardo is out, ruins his vocal cords some more in announcing Del Rio, and after the break, it's the former World Champ versus the man who cashed in on him, the Show-Off!
As Ziggler and his entourage make their entrance, we see highlights of last Friday, where Del Rio made the World Champion tap out...not like that should be a big deal or anything given how Ziggler's been been the top man on the totem pole in this triple threat debacle.
Side headlock takedown by Del Rio. Ziggler back to his feet. Irish whip and shoulderblock by Del Rio. Hiptoss by Del Rio. Dropkick by Ziggler. Clothesline in the corner by Ziggler. Kick to the arm by Del Rio. Suplex blocked by Ziggler. Ziggler delivers one of his own. Punches to the kidneys by Del Rio and the backstabber. Swagger and Colter then come out to ringside.
Back with Ziggler holding a chinlock, but Del Rio fighting up into a sunset flip for two. Dolph hits a dropkick for two of his own before dropping a bunch of elbows. Off to a rear naked choke by Ziggler but Alberto escapes and launches the champion into the air. Del Rio misses the running kick to the head in the corner but lands on Dolph, seeming to injure the champ's head in the process.
Ziggler goes up for something and Del Rio looks like he tries the running enziguri again, only to hit a running fist instead. A reverse superplex to Ziggler puts both guys down and a hard kick to Ziggler's face get a close near fall. The cross arm breaker goes on but an AJ distraction lets Langston break up the hold. He tosses Del Rio into Swagger, but the refs spots this and DQs Ziggler.
Winner: Alberto Del Rio (DQ)
Post-match, Swagger destroys everyone, ramming Langston into a post, driving a ladder into Ricardo into the barricade, and smacking both Del Rio and Ziggler upside the head with said ladder. Colter applauds him and the two men stand tall in the ring.
We're reminded that the Last Man Standing match between Cena and Ryback is a-go. Ryback takes on Kane later tonight.
More still photos of Lesnar and Heyman's WWE "office invasion", the full story still to come.
We see footage of WWE making some new multimedia deal with Yahoo!
Kaitlyn and the Funkadactyls are backstage, discussing her admirer/stalker, and the dancers warn her to watch out for this guy, who texts her and claims to understand her and quotes Ralph Wiggum with "Choo-choo-choose me." Ah, back when the Simpsons were funny and the Treehouse of Horror specials were actually scary. Nattie suggest Khali go undercover to snoop this guy out...uh, *snicker* what? As they leave, the Bellas emerge from behind a curtain with oh so devilish smiles...damn that's hot.
The Shield's music hits and the mood changes as the Hounds of Justice make their way through the crowd for six-man tag action NEXT!
The Shield vs. US Champion Kofi Kingston & The Usos
Ambrose starts out with one of the Usos. Usos take control a bit and in comes Rollins. Rollins tags in Reigns and they keep Uso down in their corner. Ambrose comes in for some double teaming with Rollins. 2 count on Uso. Rollins with a submission now.
Uso trades rights with
