Rob Van Dam def. Alberto Del Rio to advance in the Intercontinental Championship No. 1 Contender’s Tournament

Well, it wasn’t for the World Heavyweight Championship, but Rob Van Dam still got an educated leg up over Alberto Del Rio six months after the two clashed over “Big Gold” at WWE Battleground and took a step towards the Intercontinental Title in the process. Van Dam started strong out of the gate by sending “Mexico’s Greatest Export” tumbling with a monkey flip, though Del Rio replied by chucking “Mr. Monday Night” shoulder-first into the barrier.

It was touch-and-go for The Whole Dam Show from then on out; Del Rio kicked him in the gut moments after Rolling Thunder put The Essence of Excellence on his heels, and clocked the former WWE Champion with an enziguiri moments before a potential Five-Star Frog Splash could end the night. He wasn’t so lucky a few moments later, though, when Van Dam showed a rare burst of outright aggression by sweeping Del Rio off the turnbuckle and swooping down with a mat-shaking Five-Star Frog Splash for the pinfall victory.
