"Yes, sir, we promised you a great main eventů"
WWE Bragging Rights Opener:
We open the show with a video package highlighting the 'battle of the brands' theme of tonight's PPV, and the main feuds heading into the event.
The pyro hits and Michael Cole welcomes us to the show. He's broadcasting tonight alongside Jerry the King Lawler and Matt Striker. Cole immediately begins hyping up the 'bragging rights' that will be won in tonight's elimination tag match. They also talk up the WWE Championship match between Wade Barrett and Randy Orton.
We also get a very melodramatic description of the buried alive match, along with somber music and lighting, and it's all interrupted by Vickie Guerrero, who asks the crowd to excuse her. She asks the crowd to welcome the Intercontinental Champion: Dolph Ziggler.
Champion vs. Champion Match
Dolph Ziggler vs. Daniel Bryan
The bell rings, and Bryan and Ziggler jockey for position before Ziggler is able to take Bryan down to the mat. Ziggler locks in a side headlock, but Bryan is able to flip it over and catch Ziggler with a leg grapevine. Ziggler fights to the ropes and rolls to the outside. Back in the ring, Ziggler and Bryan are tentative again before Ziggler sweeps Bryan's leg and is able to score a near fall. We get some more mat wrestling out of the two, and another submission attempt from Bryan leads to Dolph bailing from the ring again. Bryan follows out this time but Vickie blocks him, so Bryan climbs up to the apron and flies off with a huge knee.
Back in the ring, Bryan scores with a big dropkick, but Ziggler rolls back to the outside, catches Bryan with a cheap shot, and comes back in the ring to take advantage. Ziggler kicks away at Bryan before laying in some punches and choking him against the middle rope. Zigler goes for the pin but he only gets a two count. Ziggler locks in a crazy looking submission hold, but Bryan is able to fight up to his feet, and Ziggler modifies it to a rear chin lock. Ziggler tries to go for a neckbreaker, but Bryan counters into a series of near falls that are good for a couple of two counts. Ziggler catches Bryan unaware with an inverted bodyslam for a two count.
Ziggler locks in a rear chin lock, and grinds his forehead against Bryan's. Bryan is able to fight to his feet, and starts to fight out of the hold, but Ziggler pulls him back down to the mat by his hair, before hitting a running, flipping neckbreaker that's good for another near fall. Ziggler pulls Bryan to his feet and taunts him, and Bryan responds with a big right to Ziggler's side. Ziggler knocks him right back down before hitting a snapmare. Ziggler lays in a huge elbow drop but it's still not enough for a three count. Ziggler locks in another submission, with a body scissors, but Bryan still won't quit.
Bryan catches Ziggler with a big boot, but a flying kick attempt in the corner and Bryan eats nothing but turnbuckle, allowing for another near fall for Ziggler. Ziggler kicks at Bryan's head before picking him up to his feet. Ziggler hits a beautiful fireman's carry throw, but it's still not enough to keep Bryan down. Ziggler locks in a body scissors and tries to lock in another submission.
