Seth Rollins def. Baron Corbin in a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match to retain the Intercontinental Championship
With Heath Slater once again in the precarious position of referee, Baron Corbin challenged Seth Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship in a TLC Match, a contest where the match could only end when The Kingslayer or The Lone Wolf climb a ladder to retrieve the Intercontinental Title hanging above the ring.
Despite Rollins starting the match strong, Baron Corbin gained control and completely dismantled The Architect with a brutal assault that incorporated every destructive implement in reach. Still, the resilient Rollins clawed his way back into the bout and kept The Lone Wolf from ascending the ladder and seizing the Intercontinental Title.
Though Rollins roared back, Corbin caught him yet again and drove him through the table outside the ring. Fighting through the pain, Rollins rebounded and again prevented his opponent from climbing the ladder with the help of the chair. During his attack, however, Rollins accidently took down Slater with the steel.
Outside the ring, Rollins placed Corbin onto the table and drove him through the hardwood with an incredible Frog Splash.
Just when it looked like Rollins was going to reach his title, however, Slater suddenly reappeared and dumped the ladder from under him.
A reluctant Slater helped Corbin back into the ring and assisted him in climbing the ladder, but the tough-as-nails Rollins hit the ring like a bolt of lightning, grabbed the “General Manager-Elect” and hurled him through the table with a bucklebomb. Face-to-face with Slater, Rollins hit the reluctant official with a superkick before blasting Corbin with the stomp and climbing the rungs to claim his title.
As the dust cleared, Rollins stared up the ramp at the emerging Dean Ambrose as the two prepare to go to war this Sunday at WWE TLC.
