Big Show vs. Alberto Del Rio
Del Rio started heading to the ring first. Before he could get far, he got ambushed by Big Show on the ramp. Show beat Del Rio down to the ringside area and tossed him around. Show threw Del Rio in the ring, only to get attacked by Mark Henry. Henry threw Show into the announce table. He then got Show up and delivered the World’s Strongest Slam through the table! Henry looked like he was leaving, but came back and started ramming Show’s left leg into the table.
Del Rio is in the ring asking the referee to start the count. Show was having difficulty getting back to his feet outside of the ring. The referee started the count and Show got back in the ring at 7. Show is in the ring and the bells rings, so the match is just now officially underway.
Show starts off strong, but eventually the injured leg allows Del Rio to take the advantage. Del Rio punished Show’s leg, but ran into a chokeslam from Show, which hurt Show as well because of his leg. Del Rio rolled out of the ring as the referee started the count. Del Rio went to the top and tried to attack Show, but was met with another chokeslam attempt, but Del Rio kicked Show’s leg to escape.
Del Rio applies the cross arm-breaker on Show’s leg, and Show is writhing in pain. Show finally made it to the ropes, forcing Del Rio to break the hold. Show is having difficulty making it to his feet. He finally does, but collapses. The ref then calls the match and Del Rio celebrates.
Alberto Del Rio defeated The Big Show after Show could no longer continue in the match.
