The Great Khali vs. Jack Swagger ended in Double Count-out
In addition to describing The Great Khali, Natalya and Hornswoggle as “multiculturalism gone awry,” Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter remarked that breaking Ricardo Rodriguez’s ankle was simply “breaking a bone to bind a country.”
When the succeeding match moved outside the ring, the “Real American” cinched in the Patriot Lock on Khali — refusing to release it even after the referee counted both Superstars out. Then, when ’Swoggle got involved, Swagger attacked him as well.
The voice of an emerging Rodriguez finally ended the abuse. As the injured announcer distracted Swagger, World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio came at his WrestleMania No. 1 contender from behind, locking him into the Cross Armbreaker. When Zeb Colter got involved, Rodriguez clocked him with his crutch before throwing it to his friend. Del Rio nearly took Swagger’s head off before the scrambling competitor could escape.
