World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio def. Kofi Kingston
Kofi Kingston flew once again in his triumphant return last week, but Alberto Del Rio brought The Boom Squad General crashing down to earth with a vicious victory over the former Intercontinental Champion. Kofi’s wave of confidence carried him through the first part of the bout; the multi-time champion easily dodged the opening wave from The Essence of Excellence and was only moments away from the win after countering a vicious kick into a roll-up attempt. Yet it was Del Rio, once again in touch with his inner cruelty after thrashing Ricardo Rodriguez last week, who got the last word by pulverizing Kofi with double knees to the gut as Kingston took flight, following up with a Cross Armbreaker that forced his valiant foe to submit.
