Damien Sandow vs Kofi Kingston (c)

Sandow suplexes Kofi for a near fall, then he goes for a another suplex but Kofi floats over and kicks him outside while Wade Barrett watches from commentary. Sandow regains control and slams Kofi into the side of the ring as we go to a break, then we return to see Sandow whip him into the corner. He kicks Kofi and hits a side Russian legsweep, then he follows with the Elbow of Disdain and rubs Kofi’s face into the mat. Kofi comes back with some punches but Sandow chokes him on the ropes, then he hits a leg lariat for a near fall before putting him in a headlock.

Kofi makes it to his feet and so Sandow punches him in the head, then he pulls him to the apron and elbows him in the chest. Kofi comes back with a quick strike so Sandow slams him into the ring apron, then Kofi climbs on the apron and blocks a strike by Sandow. Kofi surprises him with a springboard crossbody for a near fall, then Kofi dropkicks him and hits a Boom Drop and Trouble In Paradise for the win. Wade stands up and says it was an impressive victory, but the next time Kofi defends his title will be his last. Wade says he’s taking the title from Kofi, and Kofi will become the next victim of the Barrett Barrage.

Winner – Kofi Kingston 

Dolph Ziggler vs Randy Orton

Orton whips Dolph into the corner and repeatedly punches him in the face, then Dolph kicks him a few times but Orton comes back with a dropkick. Orton sends him to the apron and suplexes him back in, then he hits Dolph a few times before throwing him out of the ring and sending him into the crowd. We get back from a break to see Dolph dropkick Orton on the floor, then he rolls back in and stomps Orton on the mat. Dolph hits an elbow drop for a near fall, then he puts him in a headlock but Orton breaks it so Dolph tries to hit a running dropkick. Orton avoids it and goes for a rollup, then Dolph comes back with a pin attempt of his own before putting Orton in a grounded choke and he tries to grapevine his legs.

Orton breaks free and gets a near fall, then Dolph hits a leaping DDT out of nowhere for a two count before heading up top. Orton cuts him off and punches him in the head, then he hits a superplex for a near fall before hitting some clotheslines. He keeps it going with a spinning powerslam and a hanging DDT, then he calls for a RKO but Dolph counters with a rollup and holds the tights to steal the win. Ricardo Rodriguez runs out but Orton knocks him out, then Alberto jumps on the apron but Orton dares him to get involved so Alberto retreats. John Cena runs out and hits Dolph from behind, then he locks in the STF and Dolph yells for help as a bunch of refs run out and try to break them up.
