Despite Primo's extraordinary athleticism, it seemed as though "The All-American American" had his number from the get go with Swagger eventually scoring the pinfall. The Superstar hailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico did surprise the collegiate star by capitalizing on Swagger's overconfidence to open the door for his fast-paced offense. In the end, however, it was the "The All-American American" who picked up the win with a vicious Gutwrench Powerbomb.
After the match, Swagger revealed exactly what he has his sights set on now: Kofi Kingston's United States Championship. The Jamaican Superstar has his work cut out for him because the two-time All-American feels he was born to wear that gold, and will do anything in his power to make it happen.

Given Burchill's recent statements regarding both Gregory Helms and The Hurricane, the Chelsea, England, native must be elated after defeating ECW's favorite superhero in his "WWE Superstars" debut. Whether or not Burchill's theory that Helms and the green-clad Superstar are the same person is true, it is clear that The Ripper will aim to take both of them out if he has the opportunity. Thanks to an assist from his sister, Katie Lea Burchill, Paul was able to roll-up the superhero for the win, gaining retribution for the loss he was dealt last week on ECW.

So far, Dolph Ziggler has had two opportunities to vie for the Intercontinental Title and come up short both times, but with his win Thursday night, he will have a chance to see if the third time is the charm. Both Knox and Finlay dished out an exorbitant amount of punishment during the match, but it seemed as though whenever either man went for a pin, the Hollywood, Fla., native would dive in and ruin their hopes at championship gold.
When Finlay went for the Celtic Cross, it seemed a given that the victory was his, but Ziggler once again rushed the ring preventing The Irishman from getting the win. It just so happened that The Desert Destroyer was still prime for the picking, and the brash young Superstar capitalized on the opportunity to earn the Intercontinental Title Match at WWE Breaking Point. Now it's just a question of whether Dolph can make the most of it this time around.
