The fevered encounter soon led to an altercation between Big E Langston and Del Rio, causing Ziggler’s heavy to be ejected from ringside by the official. Still, even that did not allow the titleholder to regain his equilibrium, as Del Rio again went to work on his Ziggler’s head, leveling him with a kick, then bouncing his skull off the canvas.

Nevertheless, as each excruciating moment passed, Ziggler would not give in, fighting back by locking on the Sleeper Hold. Del Rio countered by running backward and smashing Ziggler’s skull into the turnbuckle. When Del Rio went for the Cross Armbreaker, Ziggler countered with the heart of a true champion, yet he had no counter for the enemy within.

While the referee finally stepped in again to check on Ziggler, Del Rio attacked once more, targeting the champion’s head. Back in the ring, The Showoff wouldn’t go down, roaring back with the Zig Zag. But, rather than give him the win, it only served to hurt him further and set up the ruthless No. 1 contender to deliver one final kick to the head before pinning Ziggler and reclaiming the World Heavyweight Title.

Moments after the match, the new World Heavyweight Champion reemerged before the WWE Universe and faced a hostile Chicago crowd, still clearly in shock over what they has just seen from Del Rio.
