4/29 WWE Monday Night Raw Results – The Shield Beats John Cena, Ladder Match Confirmed & More

Mike Killam

Champion vs. Champion
Dolph Ziggler vs. Kofi Kingston

Kingston takes down Ziggler with a massive kick to the face, and plants him with a springboard splash off the second rope. The World Champ kicks out and goes on the offensive, taking down Kofi with a side headlock, and working him down to the mat. They fight back to their feet and Kofi tries for an SOS, but Ziggler counters and throws him into the corner. Kingston goes high risk off the springboard, but gets dropkicked to the outside as we head to a commercial break. 

Zigglepuff is in control when we come back, but Kofi ducks out of the way and sends him flying into the top turnbuckle. The Boom Drop connects, and Kingston sets up for Trouble in Paradise. Ziggler ducks under it and catches him with a massive DDT; near-fall. They trade right hands, and Kofi catches him with the SOS for a close two-count. Ziggler tries for the Famasser out of nowhere, but Kingston dodges it and gets the Trouble in Paradise! 1…2…AJ puts Dolph's foot on the bottom rope, and the ref stops his count. 

Big E pulls Ziggler to the outside and tries to get him back into the match, but Kofi goes flying off the apron and takes them both out. He rolls Dolph back into the ring and goes up to the top rope, coming down with a huge crossbody. AJ Lee gets on the apron and distracts the referee, and Langston does the same. Kingston attacks Big E, but Dolph creeps up behind him with a Zig Zack attempt; Kofi shakes it off and sends the Champ into a turnbuckle. He heads to the top turnbuckle and tries for another splash, but Ziggler roles out of the way and hits the Zig Zag for the win. 

Winner: Dolph Ziggler

After the match, Big E Langston hits the Big Ending on Kofi Kingston. Dolph Ziggler celebrates with the World Title, but Langston hits the Big Ending a second time.
