World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio def. Zack Ryder
Zack Ryder’s gotten opportunities to show his stuff of late, but The Ultimate Broski received only heartbreak at the hands of Alberto Del Rio just six days before The Essence of Excellence defends the World Title at WWE Battleground. Despite a fast start for Long Island Iced-Z, a high-risk leap to the outside backfired when Del Rio scurried out of the way and left Ryder to eat the pavement. The former U.S. Champion fought back till the end and even landed a Broski Boot on Del Rio’s jaw, yet “Mexico’s Greatest Export” dodged the Rough Ryder and reclaimed the advantage, locking in the Cross Armbreaker for a submission victory.
