SACRAMENTO, Calif. – With just two days before SummerSlam, a new Intercontinental Champion was crowned on SmackDown and World Heavyweight Champion Christian may very well have discovered the way to overcome Randy Orton at The Biggest Event of the Summer.

Alberto Del Rio def Daniel Bryan

For the first time ever, the current holders of the Raw and SmackDown Money in the Bank briefcases squared-off against each other. And in the pinnacle of the high-stakes encounter, Bryan missed his mark off the top rope, allowing Del Rio to lock in the cross armbreaker for the win.

After the match, Wade Barrett emerged, hitting the war torn Daniel Bryan with Wasteland.
