WWE Champion Kofi Kingston def. Dolph Ziggler (Steel Cage Match)

WWE Champion Kofi Kingston def. Dolph Ziggler (Steel Cage Match)

TACOMA, Wash. — Dolph Ziggler demanded a Steel Cage Match against WWE Champion Kofi Kingston at Stomping Grounds to prevent interference from The New Day, but Kofi proved that all he’s ever needed is his heart and fighting spirit.

Surrounded by twisted steel with a chance to capture his first WWE Title, Ziggler used his “should have been me” mentality to nearly escape the cage twice within the first several minutes of the contest. Kingston also made a break for it before the two settled into an incredible back-and-forth matchup.

Dolph delivered on everything he promised, using the cage as a weapon every chance he got. With Kingston staggered, the relentless Showoff continued to brutalize the champion. Kofi answered by literally turning Dolph into the cage, much like Ziggler had done to him. Kofi’s title reign was in jeopardy when he had to survive several devastating leg locks and a Zig Zag, but he twice recovered just in time to prevent Ziggler’s feet from hitting the floor. 

In the critical moments, Ziggler created enough space from Kofi to make a clear path for himself to the door, the floor and the WWE Championship. However, with the cage door open and Ziggler mere inches away from certain victory, Kingston delivered one of the most spectacular conclusions to a Steel Cage Match in WWE history. The champion sacrificed his body with a fearless, head-first dive through the open door, landing on the floor before Dolph could make his exit and edging out an absolutely incredible victory.

Kingston rejoiced in his first Steel Cage Match victory alongside his New Day brethren, celebrating with his WWE Championship and definitively proving that it should have been him all along … and it was.
