Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel faced a daunting challenge on WWE Main Event – former World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler. However, accompanying Axel to the ring were Ryback and Paul Heyman, no doubt adding an unpredictable variable to the battle. Early in the contest, both Superstars displayed their impressive technical prowess. Ultimately Ziggler took control using his quickness and took plenty of time to showoff and leave Axel frustrated.

Seeking counsel from Heyman, Axel re-engaged his opponent and relied on powerful strikes to shift momentum in his favor. The son of WWE Hall of Famer “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig began to methodically attack the former World Heavyweight Champion, knowing full well that Ziggler’s speed and resilience could spell certain doom. Although the WWE Universe was firmly in support of The Showoff, each time he mounted an offensive, Axel managed to counter and keep him at bay.

The Intercontinental Champion dominated throughout the contest, continuing to counter Ziggler’s attacks and trying to secure victory. But The Showoff was relentless in the struggle, displaying his spirit and staying in the match. Finally taking control after dodging Axel and forcing him into the steel ring post, Ziggler fully unleashed on the third-generation Superstar.

After a back and forth exchange, Ziggler tried ascending to the top rope only to be distracted by Ryback. Falling to the outside, Axel diverted the official’s attention as Heyman’s new associate drilled Ziggler with his Meathook Clothesline. The Intercontinental Champion pounced, pulling Ziggler back in the ring and executing his signature maneuver to secure the win.
