Randy Orton def. Dolph Ziggler

After Randy Orton’s surprise RKO ruined Dolph Ziggler’s chance at cashing in his Money in the Bank contract on Sheamus last week on SmackDown, The Showoff faced The Viper, looking for retribution.

The showdown that followed was a hard-fought match from start to finish. In the final moments, Ziggler showed incredible determination, kicking out of both a superplex and a hanging DDT. However, when Ziggler missed a Zig Zag, it ended up costing him big. Before The Showoff could regroup, he fell prey to the searing RKO, giving a huge win to WWE’s Apex Predator.

Before Lilian Garcia could declare Orton the winner, though, Vickie Guerrero grabbed a microphone and Ziggler’s Money in the Bank contract, reinforcing that her client was still The Showoff and still had that golden opportunity. But this battle and this night went to The Viper, Randy Orton.
