BOSTON – With Christian out of action on WWE Main Event, Dolph Ziggler battled Intercontinental Champion Big E in a fierce title contest. Plus, ten of WWE’s battling beauties competed for momentum, en route to The Grandest Stage of Them All.

Despite winning the opportunity to battle Big E for the Intercontinental Championship on Raw, it was revealed on Main Event that Christian had sustained a slight concussion during the intense Raw Fatal 4-Way Match and could no longer compete.

As a result, Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler – Captain Charisma’s opponents on Monday night – faced-off in a Triple Threat Match to name a new No. 1 Contender. While all three Superstars left everything they had on the canvas in the subsequent free-for-all, the unbridled determination on Ziggler helped him hit the Zig Zag on Del Rio for the pin – just as The Mexican Aristocrat was executing a backstabber on Sheamus.

After the dust cleared, The Showoff lived up to his name, vowing to Renee Young that he would win the Intercontinental Championship later in the show as well as the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania. But as he shook hands with the calm and collected Big E, the WWE Universe was reminded that that would be no small task.
