|By Kian Terani | October 24, 2012 | Comments|
This week's show begins with the usual opening theme and pyro. Michael Cole welcomes us to Providence, RI. He is in the ring with the Miz. Tonight, Dolph Ziggler faces Ryback. We go to a Ryback video. Then we go to a Ziggler video. These videos are actually really well done every week. We go to Matt Striker in the back who is standing by with Ryback. He asks Ryback what he says to critics who say he is not ready for a title match. Ryback says to watch what he does to Ziggler tonight and that it is feeding time.
We go to Josh Mathews in the locker room who is standing by with Ziggler who has no comment. Josh keeps pressing him and he kicks Josh out.
We go to the ring for Ryback's entrance and then to commercial.
We're back as Ziggler makes his entrance.
Ryback vs. Dolph Ziggler
Lilian Garcia makes the formal ring introductions and the bell rings. Ziggler looks hesitant and he ducks in the ropes but Ryback grabs him and sends him flying across the ring into the opposite corner. Ryback brings Ziggler in the hard way from the apron but Ziggler escapes back out. Ryback goes out and Ziggler gets in a couple of kicks but Ryback shakes them off and catches him in mid-air and slams him down on the floor, then swings him like a bat into the security wall. Ryback sends Ziggler back in. Ziggler squirms his way off of Ryback's shoulders and runs out of the ring and up the ramp as Ryback gives chase. They go to the back as we go to commercial.
We're back as Ryback's music plays and he emerges from the back with Ziggler across his back. That's a lot of "backs." He throws Ziggler in the ring through the second ropes. Ziggler suddenly attacks with clotheslines but Ryback no-sells them. Ryback pounds his chest and catches Ziggler on the 3rd attempt and just drops him on the mat. Ryback puts Ziggler into a vicious bearhug. Ziggler works his way out and side-steps Ryback in the corner. Ziggler hits a double axe-handle from the top as Ryback shakes it off. Ziggler hits a dropkick but Ryback still stays on his feet. Ryback catches Ziggler and delivers a nasty powerbomb. The crowd starts chanting as Ryback goes into his finishing sequence. Ryback hits Shell Shock for the win.
Winner by pin: Ryback
We go to commercial.
Cole and Miz are back in the ring and Cole introduces Paul Heyman who is on the Titantron. Heyman says Ziggler is not in the same category as CM Punk so the punishment that Ryback just dished-out doesn't bother him. He says at least Miz took his beating like a man but Ziggler kept running away. Miz asks him if Ziggler losing is a sing for what happens to Punk. Heyman reiterates that there is no correlation between the two.
We go to Sin Cara's entrance and then a commercial.
Ricardo Rodriguez introduces Alberto Del Rio.
Alberto Del Rio vs. Sin Cara
They lock up and Del Rio takes control with kicks in the corner. Del Rio hits a suplex and floats over for a 1 count. Cara uses his signature agility to get in some shots. Del Rio side-steps and sends Cara shoulder-first into the steel post. Del Rio punts Cara out of the ring and goes out to bring him back in. Del Rio hooks the leg and gets 2. Cara sneaks in a near-fall but Del Rio resumes with a Tilt-A-Whirl backbreaker for 2. Del Rio hits a nasty kick to the head of a seated Cara. More kicks. Cara counters a reversal in the corner and jumps on the apron and leaps but Del Rio swats him to the floor, in a nice exchange. We go to commercial.
