Intermittent reign

February 21, 2011

FRESNO, Calif. - One night after the WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, aftershocks continued to reverberate throughout northern California. This time, the WWE Universe was shaken by the return of two legendary Superstars and the betrayal of a third.

Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston vs. Alberto Del Rio ended in a No Contest

Twenty-four hours after Alberto Del Rio defeated him in a non-title match at WWE Elimination Chamber, Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston couldn’t wait for retaliation. Before the bell even rang, The Dreadlocked Dynamo pummeled the Mexican elitist. As Kofi rained down blows, Del Rio’s personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez, punched him from behind. The distraction allowed Del Rio the upper hand until referees could step in and halt the ruthless assault.
