Jack Swagger vs. Cesaro

Cesaro knocks down his former partner early with an uppercut, but Swagger dumps him over the top rope. Cesaro tries to get back in the ring, but gets blasted with an elbow. Jack measures him for a clotheslines, but is caught with a big uppercut, laying him out.

Cesaro swings Swagger into the barricade and fires away with four uppercut strikes. They roll back into the ring and a side headlock is applied for a few minutes. Swagger starts to power out of the hold and clips Cesaro's leg, planting him with a belly-to-belly suplex. Out of nowhere Cesaro springboards off the ropes with a corkscrew uppercut.

Both guys fight back and forth with right hands, and Swagger hits another suplex and the Swagger Bomb for a close two-count. Cesaro gets a boot to his opponent's face, and both guys crash to the floor as we cut to a commercial break. When they come back, both guys are on the top turnbuckle, and Cesaro sends Swagger to the floor with a big forearm shiver, following up with a top rope spinning uppercut for a count of two.

Swagger locks in the Patriot Lock off a counter, but Cesaro escapes. He hits another belly-to-belly suplex, but can't pick up the pin. Swagger motions for the finish, but Cesaro kicks him in the gut and hits a big gutwrench powerbomb. The Cesaro Swing does about 15 rotations – much to the fans delight – and Cesaro finishes off the match with a Neutralizer.

Winner: Cesaro
