Kofi Kingston def. Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel via Disqualification

Kofi Kingston grounded Curtis Axel on SmackDown with an upset victory, and with Paul Heyman’s Intercontinental Champion heading into a do-or-die situation at Night of Champions, the disheveled and unshaven mad scientist needed a strong showing from his prodigy. What he got instead was another potential preview of the disaster that may await him on Sunday.

Though Axel had been hanging tough with The Dreadlocked Dynamo, the champion ultimately got a little carried away when he forced Kofi into the turnbuckle and started whooping him relentlessy, earning Axel a disqualification loss. This sent Heyman into a panic, and he quickly expressed the importance of Axel avoiding elimination of any kind on Sunday to keep CM Punk from fulfilling his infamous promise. But no sooner had the champ absorbed his lecture than Kofi regained his strength, bashing Axel with a Trouble in Paradise when Heyman’s disciple attempted to cheap-shot him some more. In other words, not the most perfect night for Heyman and his champion.
