Kofi sends him back in and Miz gets the advantage with a vicious DDT and Kofi stays alive. Miz stalks Kofi from behind as Kofi gets up for the Skull Crushing Finale but Kofi counters with an armdrag. Miz hits a boot to the face in the corner and puts his feet on the ropes but the ref catches him. Kofi rolls Miz up from behind as Miz argues with the ref. Miz rolls through but Kofi hits Trouble in Paradise to the head and hooks the far leg for the win.
Winner by pin and New WWE Intercontinental Champion: Kofi Kingston
Kofi celebrates in the ring with the title as Cole and JBL tout the match. Matt Striker congratulates Kofi in the ring and calls it an upset. Kofi says he told us it was time to let the beast out. He says this was one of the most grueling challenges in his career. He puts over the history of the Intercontinental Title and says this is for the entire WWE Universe. He says you can have fun and still win. He gives a Boom Boom Boom to Miz. We go to commercial.
We see a replay of what just happened and go to a close-up shot of a distraught Miz in the locker room. Josh Mathews approaches him and asks him how he feels. Miz says it feels like losing a heart or a liver. He says it was stolen from him and it's a nightmare. He says he wants a rematch and he will reclaim what's his.
Cole and JBL discuss things as Vickie interrupts with her never annoying self. She introduces Dolph Ziggler as we go to commercial.
Zack Ryder makes his entrance.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Zack Ryder
Ziggler starts off strong. Ziggler hits a boot in the corner and keeps his opponent down. Ziggler gyrates and drops an elbow to Vickie's approval but only gets 2. Ryder works up but falls victim to a nice standing dropkick from Ziggler. Ryder hits a vicious clothesline but is slow to capitalize. Ryder hits a double knee in the corner and a dropkick off the second turnbuckle. JBL tells Cole to stop saying Vickie is screeching in the corner because she knows Gloria Allread and she will sue him. Ryder hits the Broski Boot and hooks the far leg but Ziggler kicks out. Ziggler launches Ryder into the top turnbuckle and hits finisher for the win.
Winner by pin: Dolph Ziggler
Vickie gets on the mic in the ring and literally says, "Blah Blah Blah." She puts over Ziggler and says that he very well may cash-in his briefcase at Hell in a Cell. Ziggler says he deserves better than Ryder. He says he is the best thing going and he is the Main Event. He challenges any superstar in the back for next week's show. After a short pause and trash talking from Ziggler…"Feed Me More." Ziggler looks concerned. Ryback walks out on the stage and stares Ziggler down.
