Big E Langston def. Curtis Axel to become the new Intercontinental Champion

Curtis Axel has long come through in the clutch to retain his Intercontinental Championship, but the former Paul Heyman Guy’s luck finally ran dry on Raw Country when he was defeated by one of WWE’s fastest-rising Superstars: Big E Langston. Axel had initially been slated to face the former NXT Champion at the WWE Hell in a Cell Kickoff, but an injury to the titleholder put the match on the backburner. He had nowhere to hide on Raw, though, falling victim to Langstson’s smothering strength almost instantly.

Axel caught a break by bouncing Big E’s neck off the ropes and quickly pounced on his challenger to regain control of the match. For a moment, it looked as though the champion would prevail, as Axel kept the bout close by matching Langston’s power with his speed. Langston weathered Axel’s storm, though, countering his neckbreaker and sending the champion down to Earth with a Big Ending that was truly, utterly perfect.
