Kane vs Zack Ryder

Zack shoves Kane and tells him to fight, then he ducks a punch and kicks him before running away. He slides out of the ring and Kane chases him, but Zack rolls back in and dropkicks him off the apron and slams him into the steps. Zack tells the ref to start a count, but Kane makes it back in and knocks him down before stomping him on the mat. Kane steps on Zack’s back before hitting a backbreaker for a two count, then he puts Zack in a bearhug and slams him into the turnbuckles.

Kane takes Zack down with a snapmare and dropkicks him in the face, then he puts him in a bodyscissors and continues to work on his lower back. Zack throws some elbows to break the hold, then he hits a neckbreaker for a two count. He runs at Kane and gets backdropped to the apron, but he lands on his feet then comes back in and fights off a chokeslam attempt. Zack knees Kane in the head then gets taken down with a side slam, then Kane climbs up top but Zack crotches him on the ropes and follows it with a Broski Boot. Zack covers him but Kane kicks out at one, then he calls for a Rough Ryder but Kane catches him in the air and chokeslams him for the win.
