Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel def. R-Truth

While it looked as if the former United States Champion had gotten the gold-changing three-count, the referee quickly recanted that call because he saw that Axel was gripping the rope. The second-generation Intercontinental Champion then took advantage of the distraction, hitting his opponent with a vicious neckbreaker for the win, and the successful title defense.
