Dolph Ziggler def. Alberto Del Rio

Ain’t this a kick in the head? Dolph Ziggler, who has suffered at the hands of Alberto Del Rio’s vicious kicks for months on end, finally got one over on “Mexico’s Greatest Export” when he showed up – as only he can – the opulent Del Rio in a one-on-one match on Raw. With “Need For Speed” star Aaron Paul acting as his corner man, The Showoff was in fine form in The Windy City, one-upping Del Rio’s classic entrance by riding Paul’s “Need For Speed” ride into the arena and hanging tough against a particularly vicious tilt-a-whirl backbreaker.

Riding the WWE Universe’s enthusiasm, Dolph planted Del Rio with a leaping DDT, though a superkick to The Showoff’s chin seemed to spell the end. Paul – who had been perched at commentary – took that as his cue and distracted Del Rio long enough for The Showoff to find his bearings. Ziggler wiggled free of an attempted Cross Armbreaker to plant Del Rio with a Zig Zag, and that, as they say, was that.
