Big E Langston def. Alberto Del Rio

After AJ Lee accidently cost Big E Langston his match against Alberto Del Rio on Raw, the powerful competitor returned to SmackDown to go head-to-head with World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler’s No. 1 contender for the fourth time.

Eager to make up for her Monday mistake, AJ engaged Del Rio outside the ring while the referee was distracted, shaking things up enough for Langston to hurl the Mexican Superstar into the unforgiving steel post. Moments later, Big E executed the “Big Ending” on Del Rio for the three-count, evening the recent matches between them at two wins apiece.
