Alberto Del Rio def. Sami Zayn
With all this talk of the New Era, one might have expected that the old guard like Alberto Del Rio wouldn’t stand a chance against a hungry up-and-comer like Sami Zayn. It looks like this old perro has a few tricks up his sleeve, however. The Essence of Excellence held his fellow Money in the Bank participant back in a singles match on Raw, despite a heartfelt effort by The Underdog from the Underground.
Ring awareness and lack of scruples won the day, though. Zayn had been lined up on the turnbuckle for Del Rio’s big stomp, but he managed to haul Del Rio onto the mat. The Pride of Mexico pounced quickly, shoving Zayn face-first into the ring post and going for the move again. This time it hit home, and Zayn packed his bags for the night.
