Alberto Del Rio def. U.S. Champion Santino Marella in a Non-Title Match
Alberto Del Rio was the aggressor early on, but Santino mounted a comeback and sent his opponent looking to regroup on the outside. The Mexican Aristocrat didn’t fall for Santino’s usual tricks, however. After the U.S. Champion attempted a split-legged dodge, Del Rio caught him with a stinging kick to the midsection, and then planted his knees into Santino’s arm when he tried to strike with The Cobra. With The Milan Miracle in pain, Del Rio slapped on the Cross Armbreaker and quickly forced him to tap out.
As the No. 1 contender to the World Heavyweight Title, Del Rio declared after the match that he would not compete again until his bout against Sheamus at SummerSlam.
