Big Show def. Intercontinental Champion Ryback via Disqualification

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Miz displayed his feelings for the Intercontinental Champion and the No. 1 contender at WWE Money in the Bank by attacking both Superstars during the showdown – giving Big Show the win by disqualification, ultimately allowing Ryback to retain the title. 

Before the match began, The A-Lister made his way to the ring to join the announce team, first praising his home state of Ohio before berating the inhabitants.

The Miz interjected himself into the rivalry between Big Show and Ryback after hosting both competitors on Miz TV, where Ryback delivered Shell Shocked to The World’s Largest Athlete and built a great deal of anticipation for this colossal collision.

When the opening bell sounded in Columbus’ Nationwide Arena, Ryback immediately went on the offensive, taking Big Show down with a massive spinebuster and then delivering a crushing meathook. With the action spilling to the outside, The Big Guy didn’t fancy looking at The Miz during the bout and tossed the A-Lister into the timekeeper’s area.

Ryback’s brief shift in focus allowed Big Show to recalibrate and take control of the battle. Ryback tried to battle back, but Big Show caught him ready to deliver a huge chokeslam. To the shock of the WWE Universe, The Big Guy expertly applied an armbar that The World’s Largest Athlete narrowly escaped by grabbing the robes. Maintaining control, Ryback displayed his uncanny power with a massive suplex. Unfortunately for the Intercontinental Champion, it resulted in only a near-fall.

Big Show once again took control following a failed Shell Shocked attempt by hitting a chokeslam on the Intercontinental Champion. He then squared up and planted a KO Punch on Ryback’s jaw, with the force of the blow driving The Big Guy out of the ring. Ready to reclaim the Intercontinental Championship, Big Show threw Ryback back inside the ring, but before he could attempt a pinfall, The Miz attacked, forcing the referee to call for the bell. Because The Miz attacked Big Show first, The World’s Largest Athlete won the match, but the disqualification victory meant that Ryback retained the Intercontinental Championship.

Whether its jealousy or general frustration, The Miz has certainly let his true feelings about the state of Intercontinental Championship contention be known to the WWE Universe – not to mention the champion and challenger.
