Axel managed to take control of the contest after an exchange outside of the ring. Heyman looked on approvingly from ringside as the Intercontinental Champion did his best to keep Rhodes grounded and off balance. However, Rhodes bounced back and the WWE Universe was on the edge of their seats as near-falls and counters kept the momentum swinging.

With the grandson of a plumber in control, Axel was desperate to find an opportunity. As Rhodes pulled him away from the edge of the squared circle, the Intercontinental Champion grabbed the ring apron forcing the official to make Rhodes back off. With his opponent momentarily distracted, Axel was able to execute his signature maneuver for the victory.
