Kofi Kingston vs Wade Barrett (c)

Kofi ties Wade up in the corner and dares him to strike him, then they stand off before Kofi puts him in a standing waistlock. Wade breaks it and they stare each other down, then Kofi punches him a few times before going for a pin. Kofi hits a few jumping sidekicks before Wade bails outside, then Kofi goes right after him and throws him into the steps. He rolls Wade back in and hits a springboard forearm for a near fall, then he puts Wade in an inverted facelock and switches to an armbar. Wade punches him a few times before whipping him across the ring, then he kicks Kofi in the back and hits a few kidney punches and a clothesline.

Kofi tries to steal it with a backslide pin, then goes for a few more pin attempts before Wade kicks him in the stomach. Wade goes for a clothesline but Kofi dumps him outside, then Kofi connects with a flying crossbody and tries to bring Wade back inside. Wade slams him into the ring apron and rolls him in, then the ref starts a ten count and Wade tells him to keep counting while he waits outside. Kofi goes after him at the seven count and throws him inside, and Kofi beats the count as we go to a commercial break.

We get back to see Wade slam Kofi on the mat and follow it with a middle rope elbow drop for two, then Wade knees him in the face and kicks him in the face to knock him outside. Wade taunts the crowd while the ref makes a count, then Kofi makes it in at eight and Wade jumps in and elbows him in the back of the head. Wade hits Kofi in the corner and suplexes him onto the top turnbuckle, then he punches him in the head before setting up a superplex. Kofi blocks it and shoves him back, then he connects with a flying crossbody for two before slugging it out with Wade. Kofi slides through the ropes and kicks Wade in the head, then he ducks a punch and connects with the S.O.S. for a close fall. (Cont'd…)
