Heath Slater def. Sin Cara

Looking to build upon his recent success in the ring, Sin Cara locked horns with the boastful Heath Slater. The International Sensation employed multiple counters and aerial maneuvers including his signature springboard arm drag to keep Slater off balance, creating the impression that The One-Man Band’s arsenal may still need some fine tuning.

However Cody Rhodes — who watched the action from ringside as Cole’s guest commentator — opted to chime in before the clash came to a conclusion. When the referee became distracted by Slater, the grandson of a plumber forcefully turned his masked rival’s cover backward, leaving Sin Cara unable to defend himself against The One-Man Band’s snap reverse DDT. The meddling resulted in a victory for Slater and a reason for The International Sensation to remain furious with the former two-time Intercontinental Champion, Rhodes.

If that wasn't enough, Rhodes opted to attack Sin Cara after the bell, just to make sure he saved face.
