Alberto Del Rio def. Dolph Ziggler to become No. 1 Contender to the United States Championship
That Dolph Ziggler suffered a loss to his self-admitted favorite opponent, Alberto Del Rio, was probably of small consolation, as the loss A) was initiated by outside factors and B) cost Ziggler a chance to challenge for championship gold. The outside factor in question? Fandango, who – perhaps smarting over Dolph’s makeout session with Summer Rae – distracted the former World Heavyweight Champion right as Dolph hit a Famouser to stun Del Rio by gyrating atop the announce table, allowing The Essence of Excellence to superkick Ziggler into defeat. The gold in question? A United States Title opportunity against Sheamus, to be contested tomorrow night on Main Event.
