Rob Van Dam def. Alberto Del Rio in a Beat the Clock Challenge Match
The Whole Dam Show went international thanks to RVD’s Beat the Clock victory over Alberto Del Rio; not only did it give Mr. Monday Night a chance to beat on his on-and-off rival, but it also knocked off Big E’s earlier mark as the time to beat for prospective No. 1 contenders to the Intercontinental Championship. RVD was all over Del Rio from the start, attempting to dispatch him with a series of elaborate roll-ups before The Essence of Excellence found his (educated) footing. The former World Heavyweight Champion – a man who claims to have shouldered no less a burden than the future of the planet – would not be beaten so easily. Despite two Rolling Thunders from RVD, it took a reversion to Van Dam’s original game plan – a roll-up – to claim the win at 4:15.
