Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston def. Michael McGillicutty

Having served The Miz a piping-hot helping of crow last week on WWE Main Event, new Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston stormed into Raw and did his championship proud with a hard-fought win over a very game Michael McGillicutty in IZOD Center.

McGillicutty, the irascible former WWE Tag Team Champion, came out swinging and looked dominant for the majority of the contest, using a series of brutish strikes to keep Kofi at bay, but the champion came up strong at exactly the right time. Using McGillicutty's own headstrong energy against him, Kofi dodged a turnbuckle attack by the son of WWE Hall of Famer Mr. Perfect and transitioned seamlessly into a lightning-fast Trouble in Paradise that put McGillicutty down for the count. With The Miz stewing at commentary and absorbing Kofi's strategy, however, it's safe for the WWE Universe to assume that Kingston will have his work cut out for him when he defends the championship at Hell in a Cell.
