PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Dunkin Donuts Center was treated to two major contests on the latest episode of WWE Main Event. With only days until the biggest match of his career, Ryback battled Dolph Ziggler with intentions of sending a clear message to WWE Champion CM Punk. Additionally, Alberto Del Rio squared off with Sin Cara in a fast-paced offensive bout that also saw the surprise appearances and WWE Main Event debuts of The Prime Time Players and WWE's Apex Predator.

After Dolph Ziggler defeated his longtime rival Zack Ryder last week on WWE Main Event, The Showoff issued an open challenge to any WWE Superstar. Mr. Money in the Bank immediately regretted the decision when the ring warrior who answered the call was none other than WWE Champion CM Punk's Hell in a Cell opponent, Ryback.

The monstrous competitor is undefeated and has been dominant each and every time he steps inside the squared circle, and that is more than enough to make Ziggler second guess his own arrogance. Since debuting earlier in October on ION Television, however, it's been proven that anything can happen on WWE Main Event, and with experience in his corner, Ziggler potentially could have scored a major upset.

Though The Showoff initially displayed his patented overconfidence, as he approached the ring and sized up his massive opponent, reality sunk in and Ziggler's trepidation about his daunting challenge was unmistakably clear. Also working against Mr. Money in the Bank was what transpired on Monday Night Raw. Typically, Ziggler has a shrieking insurance policy in the form of Vickie Guerrero in his corner. Due to Mr. McMahon naming her Managing Supervisor of Raw in light of AJ Lee's resignation as General Manger, however, there was a strange "silence" at ringside.

As the bout got underway, Ziggler seemed reluctant to engage his opponent, trying to duck in between the ropes. Fortune did not favor The Showoff in Providence as Ryback quickly became the aggressor. The Tale of the Tape for this contest spoke volumes as the near 300-pound Superstar from Sin City was twice the size and possessed more than double the strength of Ziggler.

The action spilled to the outside where Ryback delighted — and shocked — the WWE Universe by grabbing The Showoff by the legs and tossing him with ease into the ringside barricade. Ziggler was reeling early on and tried to mount any semblance of offense he could muster. Knowing he could never overpower his massive opponent, Mr. Money in the Bank attempted to cut his losses and flee to the locker room area, but his opponent pursued.

Moments later, Ryback marched back toward the ring with Ziggler hoisted on his shoulders. Eventually, the intimidation factor wore off and The Showoff's experience and agility finally kicked in as he began a course of shifting momentum in his favor. Alas, the raw power of the Sin City wrecking machine was too much and he caught Ziggler in mid-air and forcefully powerbombed him to the mat. There was no showing off as Mr. Money in the Bank staggered to his feet while the crowd chanted "Feed Me More" followed by a devastating clothesline. Ziggler's fate was sealed as Ryback executed his patented Shell Shocked maneuver to secure the win.
