Kofi went for the mile high again, but Ziggler was able to lock in a sleeper hold. Ziggler held it for awhile before Kofi was able to power out and lock Ziggler in a sleeper of his own. Ziggler was able to get out and Vickie went to slap Kofi, but Ziggler stopped her so he wouldn't get DQ'd. Kofi went for TIP again and missed, Ziggler hit the Zig Zag and got the three count.
Dolph Ziggler defeated Kofi Kingston via pinfall to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
After the match Vickie looked upset with Ziggler for not letting her slap Kofi during the match. Ziggler raised Vickie's hand and everything's all fine again.
