Jack Swagger def. Alberto Del Rio
LONDON — The legendary Phenom competed on the blue brand for the first time in nearly three years, headlining a monumental night of main event showdown as he battled The Shield’s Dean Ambrose inside London’s O2 Arena. And while he ultimately made his treacherous foe tap out, “The Hounds of Justice” would execute a crippling post-match assault on The Demon of Death Valley.
One week after Alberto Del Rio triumphed over Jack Swagger in a grueling WrestleMania rematch, the dual–No. 1 contenders for Dolph Ziggler’s World Heavyweight Title once again squared off in a No Disqualification Match — utilizing every weapon in sight to gain a decisive advantage.
In the final moments of the knockdown, drag-out free-for-all, the scheming Zeb Colter fed his Superstar a Kendo stick, just as the “Real American” was trapped in the excruciating Cross Armbreaker. After using the tool of destruction to make a forceful escape, Swagger ripped into Del Rio with both it and a ladder before executing the Gut-wrench Powerbomb for the victory.
