In front of the WWE Universe at a packed Toyota Center – and watching live around the world on WWE.com, the WWE App, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Google+, Samsung Smart TVs, Xbox, Sony PS3, Pinterest and Pheed – Fandango, accompanied by the stunning Summer Rae, had some choice words for the WWE fans in attendance and the famed Texas Line Dance before the bell rung and the two Superstars tore into each other.

WWE’s ballroom dancing aficionado took the early advantage, withstanding a high-impact dropkick from The Showoff to keep the pressure on. Tossing the two-time World Heavyweight Champion over the top rope, Fandango and his show stealing opponent began trading offensive maneuvers and pin attempts. Ziggler used Billy Gunn’s renowned Famouser to come with nanoseconds of the victory.

Fandango, however, endured everything Ziggler threw at him, moving like Gene Kelly and grappling like Gene LeBell. When the back-and-forth fight went to the top rope, a well-timed distraction from Summer Rae gave her leading man the window he needed, as Fandango hit Ziggler with a crushing leg drop for the win.

While it was an impressive showing in defeat, Ziggler heads back to the drawing board. The graceful Fandango and his beautiful dance partner, meanwhile, pick up a huge win in the Kickoff Match of WWE’s final pay-per-view of the year and look primed for big things in 2014.
