PORTLAND – Days before WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs, Dolph Ziggler goes toe-to-toe with former Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel and Natalya prepares for her Divas Championship Match by battling Alicia Fox. Also, the rivalry between Xavier Woods & R-Truth and Tons of Funk continues to intensify.

In the WWE TLC Kickoff Match, former World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler goes one-on-one with dancing Superstar Fandango. However, on WWE Main Event, The Showoff had to focus on former Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel, with an eye locked at ringside on Axel’s tag team partner, Ryback.

Although he no longer holds the prestigious Intercontinental Title and has ditched Paul Heyman, Curtis Axel continues to make a name for himself and he entered Portland knowing that a victory against a former World Heavyweight Champion would provide a great deal of momentum going forward.

Well aware of Ziggler’s speed and amateur wrestling background, Axel displayed his own technical prowess in an effort to keep his opponent reeling. Both Superstars grappled back and forth with The Showoff taking control after following up a neckbreaker with a flurry of elbows.

Proving his resilience, Axel continued to battle back as Ziggler’s offensive was pushed into overdrive, finally getting time to regroup when the former World Heavyweight Champion crashed to the outside. The son of WWE Hall of Famer Mr. Perfect took advantage, methodically striking at his opponent and trying to dismantle The Showoff’s ability to compete.

Nevertheless, Ziggler and Axel traded momentum throughout the remainder of the contest, neither Superstar maintaining an advantage long enough to secure a pinfall. Frustration mounted for both Ziggler and Axel as nothing seemed to be enough. Watching the match from ringside, Ryback finally had enough and ascended to the ring apron only to be knocked down by Ziggler. However, the opening was all Axel needed to execute his patented neckbreaker for the win.
