Alberto Del Rio def. Dolph Ziggler

With Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter keeping a close eye from the back, World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio took on Dolph Ziggler — in an explosive contest made by the WWE Universe last week, via Twitter, during the highly successful Social Media SmackDown. And prior to the match, Mr. Money in the Bank promised to make history.

Early on, Big E Langston interfered in the action. But, when he chose to pursue an instigating Ricardo Rodriguez outside the ring, it was AJ Lee who ended up getting a bucket of water thrown on her. This made things go from bad to outright chaotic as the emotional Diva snapped, charging after Del Rio’s friend and eventually causing the referee to eject both her and Big E from ringside.

In the final moments of the knockdown, drag-out match that followed, Del Rio once again showed the guts and resilience of a true World Champion, fighting back from the impressive efforts of The Showoff to thwart his Zig Zag attempt and make him tap out to the Cross Armbreaker.

Shortly after the match, a still-soaked AJ Lee and ex-boyfriend Daniel Bryan rekindled their tremendous dislike for each other.
