|By Kian Terani | March 13, 2013 | Comments|
- The show begins this week with the opening theme then we go to pyro and span the crowd in Ft. Wayne, In. Michael Cole and The Miz are on commentary and welcome us to the show.
- We go to the stage as Ricardo introduces Alberto Del Rio. Del Rio grabs a mic in the ring in the midst of "Si!" chants. Del Rio cuts a promo on Jack Swagger about everyone across the country being "made in America." He sends to the same parody video we saw last week and again on Monday. Back in the ring Del Rio says it's time to get to business. He says he has a big opponent.
Big Show's music hits and he comes to the ring. The bell rings and here we go...
Alberto Del Rio vs. The Big Show
They lock up and Show tosses Del Rio to the mat. Del Rio hits a kick to the head by the ropes and snaps off a backstabber as Show goes out to get a breather. Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter joins us on the ramp as we take a break.
We're back as Zeb and Swagger continue to look-on. Show has taken over in the ring as he works the left arm of Del Rio. Show sends the world champion into the corner and follows but Del Rio gets both boots up and hits a hurricanrana out of the corner. Del Rio goes up top and connects with a seated Senton but Show kicks out with authority. Del Rio continues with a flurry of kicks but Show kicks out again.
Show lifts Del Rio with one arm to avoid the armbreaker but Del Rio hangs on and applies it in the ropes as he hangs upside down on the apron. Show lifts and drops him to the floor in a spot we saw during their recent feud also. Swagger runs to ringside and 'clips' Del Rio knee from behind and as the ref had turned to talk to Big Show in the ring. The ref restarts his count; Ricardo tries to get him back in but he is counted out.
Winner by count out: The Big Show
Swagger and Zeb leave as Del Rio is unable to stay on his feet on his way to the back but has Ricardo at his aid.
- We're back from a commercial as 3MB enters the ring. Drew McIntyre's ribs are heavily bandaged. The Uso brothers make their full entrance.
The Uso's vs. 3MB
Jinder Mahal is not competing again. Slater locks up with Jimmy and plays his air-guitar. The Uso's, looking more alike than ever, hit a double team and get 2. Mahal pulls the ropes down and Uso goes flying to the floor. Slater tags Drew who slams Uso on the apron and sends the Samoan back in. Drew hits a big boot to the head but only gets 2. Slater comes back in and hits measured shots to the face of Uso as he gloats and covers for 2. Slater runs up the ropes, looking for a bulldog, but Uso counters into a side suplex.
Uso makes the hot-tag to his brother and Drew tags in as well. Uso hits a Samoan Drop. Drew crawls to the corner to get himself ready to take the Running Stinkface. Slater breaks the cover and gets kicked in the face to the floor. The Uso's hit a Superfly Splash for the win.
