Dolph Ziggler def. King Barrett by Disqualification
OTTAWA, Ontario —With WWE Payback only 10 days away,The Architect built his own brand of chaos on the foundation of the upcoming WWE World Heavyweight Championship Fatal 4-Way Match. Plus, royal disorder, dominant Divas action and the fierce rumblings of a Russian Tank.
