Raw results: Team Foley and Team Punk brawled
October 29, 2012
Alberto Del Rio def. Justin Gabriel
Alberto Del Rio may have failed to establish himself as WWE’s “new Apex Predator” against Randy Orton, but The Mexican Aristocrat had little trouble stopping Justin Gabriel. The highflier who nearly wrestled the United States Title away from Antonio Cesaro at WWE Hell in a Cell, Gabriel pushed the former WWE Champion to his limit. But the intense aristocrat was not to be denied as he grounded the acrobat with a stiff kick before polishing him off with a debilitating Cross Armbreaker.
CM Punk and Mick Foley revealed their Survivor Series teams
WWE Champion CM Punk barely escaped WWE Hell in a Cell with his coveted title, but the “WWE ‘13” cover boy was unabashed as he allowed his slimy associate, Paul Heyman, to reveal his squad for his Survivor Series bout against Mick Foley’s group. Taking a twisted pleasure in rattling off the roster, Heyman introduced The Miz, Team Rhodes Scholars and Alberto Del Rio with the confidence of a man with victory already in his grasps.
Undeterred, former WWE Champion Mick Foley hit the ring and introduced a squad that would not be intimidated by Punk’s rogues gallery. In short order, The Hardcore Legend welcomed Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston, WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No and the unpredictable Randy Orton into his company. As if that wasn’t enough, Mrs. Foley’s Baby Boy thrilled the WWE fans when he revealed the final member of his team — none other than the wrecking machine known as Ryback.
Clearly rattled, the WWE Champion headed for the hills as his Survivor Series squad got dismantled by Foley’s team. The Straight Edge Savior could run, but come Nov. 18, 2012, he can no longer hide.
