Fallout from the Royal Rumble spilled over onto WWE Main Event. On an action-packed Wednesday night, Alberto Del Rio took on R-Truth. In a Divas match, Natalya clashed with AJ Lee’s bodyguard, Tamina Snuka. Also, Intercontinental Champion Big E Langston teamed with The Usos to take on 3MB.
Alberto Del Rio def. R-Truth
Though he was tossed out of the Royal Rumble Match, Alberto Del Rio is determined to bounce back and get revenge on Batista. First, he’d have to get through R-Truth on WWE Main Event. The rapping Superstar was out to show The Mexican Aristocrat “what’s up.”
R-Truth had a little too much fun at the beginning of the match, as Del Rio attacked him while he danced. The speedy Truth was able to rebound and send Del Rio over the top rope to the arena floor, before launching himself over the top rope onto his stunned opponent.
Back in the ring, Del Rio temporarily took control of the match with a dropkick to the head. The Mexican Aristocrat still had trouble containing his speedy opponent, until he caught him with a devastating kick to the ribs in the corner. Following up with a vicious clothesline, Del Rio thought he had sufficiently slowed down R-Truth.
Though R-Truth managed to mount a brief comeback, catching his opponent with a picture-perfect dropkick from the top rope and a series of aerial maneuvers, Del Rio could not be denied on Wednesday night. Del Rio landed his trademark Enzuigiri, rocking R-Truth on the top turnbuckle.
After catching the rapping Superstar in a precarious position on the ropes, Del Rio viciously caved in R-Truth’s chest with a brutal double stomp to claim the victory.
