Alberto del Rio vs. Dolph Ziggler
Ricardo Rodriguez, AJ Lee and Big E. Langston all surround the ring for this match.
Del Rio takes down the champion with a side headlock to get this match started. Ziggler powers out of the hold but gets taken down with a shoulder tackle. Dolph ducks out of a second and throws del Rio into the corner, nailing him with a big running splash. He tries for another, but the challenger dodges and connects with a big step-up kick in the corner. Alberto hangs up the champ in the ropes and nails him with a dozen shots to the kidney, followed by the Backbreaker. He rolls to the outside of the ring, and Jack Swagger makes his way down to ringside and gets in Big E. Langston's face.
After a commercial break, it appears Zeb Colter has joined us for commentary. Ziggler is in control, dropping an elbow on del Rio half a dozen times. Dolph runs the ropes, and gets thrown on his face by the challenger. Alberto tries for the step-up kick for a second time, but Ziggler ducks under it. Cross Arm Breaker attempt, but Ziggler turns it into a neckbreaker. They battle up to the top rope, and del Rio ends up on the better end of a sick face-first suplex. A clothesline connects, followed by the tilt-the-whirl backbreaker. Superkick to the side of the head – 1…2…Dolph kicks out.
Cross Arm Breaker is locked in, but AJ Lee gets up on the apron and distracts the referee. Big E. Langston pulls del Rio out of the ring and throws him into the announce table as the ref calls for the bell.
Winner: No Contest
After the match, all hell breaks loose as all the three World title contenders brawl, along with Langston. Swagger takes down Langston and grabs a ladder, bashing the champion in the face with it, in the center of the ring. Alberto del Rio hits the ring again, but Swagger throws the ladder into his face, taking him out as well. Swagger stands tall with Zeb Colter on the entrance ramp to end the segment.
