Dolph Ziggler def. WWE Tag Team Champion Daniel Bryan


With Kane raging through the locker room in pursuit of CM Punk, Daniel Bryan was on his own for his one-on-one bout against Dolph Ziggler. And though the submission specialist acquitted himself formidably in a rare non–Team Hell No contest, he found himself sorely missing Kane’s company when AJ Lee and Big E Langston interfered to snatch victory from the “No!” man’s clutches and pilfer the bout for The Showoff.

To be fair, however, it would have taken divine intervention to decide the bout, as Ziggler matched Bryan’s preparation and efficiency note-for-note, countering each of “The Dazzler’s” byzantine holds with his own wild offensive style. The two Superstars know each other well at this point, having gone at it in a classic bout or two over the years, and the match remained on an even level until AJ distracted the referee and Langston helped Dolph escape Bryan’s “No!” Lock, giving The Showoff a window to seal the bout with a Zig Zag. A mere pinfall wouldn’t placate AJ, though, who avenged her embarrassment at Bryan’s hands on SmackDown (WATCH) by siccing Big E on the submission technician. The happy couple’s heavy gladly obliged, flattening the WWE Tag Team Champion as an exclamation point to Dolph’s marquee victory.
