Luke Harper vs Dolph Ziggler (Ladder match for Intercontinental Championship)

  • Before the match starts, Ziggler, the hometown boy, gets a massive pop.
  • The two start with a brief scuffle, after which both leave the ring to grab some ladders. As they're outside, Harper kicks Ziggler and throws him into a ladder.
  • Harper drags Ziggler to and eventually throws him into the timekeeper's area. Harper tries to climb the ladder, but Ziggler catches up and pushes the ladder down. Unfortunately, Harper lands on his feet and boots the hell out of Ziggler.
  • Harper bridges a ladder between the ring and announce table and positions Ziggler for a powerbomb. Ziggler wiggles out and pushes Harper away. As Ziggler runs to Harper, Harper slams Ziggler HARD onto the floor. He then pushes Ziggler into another ladder for good measure.
  • Harper goes for the title again, but Ziggler is able to catch up again. He tries to get some offense in, but Harper overpowers him to the ground. After this, Harper pushes a ladder onto Ziggler.
  • Ziggler tries to mount and capsize a ladder onto Harper, but Harper is able to dropkick Ziggler off the top rope onto the floor. A moment later, Harper tosses the ladder onto Ziggler.
  • Ziggler starts to get up and brings a ladder up with him. As Ziggler gets up, Harper starts to attempt a suicide dive. However, as Harper goes through the ropes, he meets the ladder with his head. As Ziggler goes down, so does Harper and the ladder. That looked brutal.
  • Ziggler attempts to take advantage and get the IC Title, but Harper is able to catch up and tip over the ladder, sending Ziggler into the ropes.
  • Harper tries to set Ziggler up for another powerbomb attempt, but Ziggler is able to escape again and dropkick Harper, who lands on the ladder. Despite the counter, Harper is able to eventually powerbomb Ziggler on a ladder set up in the corner on the second rope.
  • Ziggler's battle scars are shown as the crowd tries to cheer him on. This does not faze Harper, who whiplashes Ziggler into the second rope while a ladder is positioned on him. This causes Ziggler to bleed from the forehead.
  • The ringside doctor tries to patch up Ziggler, but Ziggler pushes him away as he rushes to catch Harper, who was climbing for the title. The two brawl until the ladder gives way, causing both to crash down. Harper is now bleeding from the arm.
  • Harper attempts ANOTHER powerbomb on a flat ladder. However, Ziggler is able to counter this into a facebuster onto the ladder. Ziggler goes for the title, but Harper pulls him down. Despite this, Ziggler is able to quickly turn this into a huge DDT.
  • Harper puts a ladder on his head a-la Terry Funk and grazes Ziggler with it. Ziggler counters with a superkick. A scuffle later, and Ziggler is able to hit Harper with a ladder, which sends him crashing onto the bridged ladder.
  • Ziggler tries to get the title, but Harper miraculously catches up to him and pushes the ladder down. I can't tell if Ziggler hit his head, but it looked brutal. A "this is awesome" chant breaks out after this.
  • Ziggler rides a ladder to get from a corner to the set-up ladder. Harper tries to catch Ziggler by setting up a second ladder beside him. Despite this atttempt, Ziggler kicks Harper, sending him crashing to the ground. Ziggler is able to get the title for the win.

Result: Dolph Ziggler defeats Luke Harper to gain the Intercontinental Championship

Excellent showing that both men will definitely feel in the morning.


The Usos vs The Miz/Damien Mizdow (Tag Team Championship)

  • The Miz immediately takes control of Jimmy Uso as the crowd almost immediately starts chanting for Mizdow.
  • The Usos go for a double suplex on Miz, and Mizdow perfect mimics the suplex in the corner. It is clear why we are watching this match.
  • Miz takes control and asks the crowd if they want Mizdow, but Miz continues his selfish, A-list ways to the crowd's dismay. This pandering almost costs Miz the match.
  • An Uso gets a hot tag, and takes control of the match (Miz didn't even try to tag Mizdow). The Uso lines Miz up for the butt block in the corner as Mizdow assumes the position on the other side. A bit of comedy ensues until the Uso nails Miz.
  • Eventually, Miz hits an Uso with the Skull-Crushing Finale and tries to put the other into the Figure Four. However, the other is able to reverse into a modified half-crab, which Miz is only able to break by reaching the ropes.
  • The rest is a little chaotic, but the match ends when Miz nails an Uso with his Slammy, causing a DQ.

Result: The Usos defeat Miz/Mizdow by DQ; Miz/Mizdow retain the Tag Team Championship


Backstage, Byron Saxon interviews Seth Rollins. Rollins talks about his upcoming match, and promises to make Sting and John Cena pay for their actions. And what does Rollins have to do to make Cena pay? Simple: put him through a table. The future is here, and Rollins will not stop brutalizing Cena until The Authority is brought back.


Erick Rowan vs Big Show (Stairs match)

  • This is going to be interesting
  • I missed the first part of this due to me getting a drink to calm my coughing (damn sinuses). When I returned, Rowan was on the ground holding his arm.
  • Show tries to throw some stars at Rowan, but it backfires and Big Show eats the chairs. Rowan then tears the stair display up before setting up a wall of stairs (modern-day Stonehenge?)
  • As Rowan is constructing his masterpiece, Big Show grabs him and throws him into the corner post before rolling him into the ring.
  • After returning from another quick distraction, Rowan is hurled into some stairs by Show as the crowd chants "Big Show sucks"
  • Big Show hits Rowan with the bottom half of the stairs and jaws a bit with Michael Cole. The stairs and Rowan and inserted into the ring.

  • Big Show sets up for a chokeslam, but Rowan wiggles out and slams Show onto those stairs. It should be stated that the crowd is chanting "NXT"
  • Rowan ascends the turnbuckle with stairs in tow. He jumps off the buckle, but Show is able to dodge a good part of the bump, although his side is nailed by the stairs.
  • On the outside, Rowan is speared through Stair Stonehenge to no reaction. The crowd has given up on this one.
  • In the ring, Rowan is chokeslammed onto the stairs, then eats a subsequent KO Punch.
  • To be sure that Rowan is down, Show pins Rowan with the stairs on top of him.

  • As I go to take some NyQuil for my sinus infection, the entire crowd starts a "boring" chant...this is painful.
  • I return to Ryback ShellShocking Kane for the win.

Result: Ryback def Kane

Now I do apologize for my lackluster coverage here. My sinuses were getting the best of me, and I am near my breaking point with this show. The only reasons I'm still here are because of the main event and that I try not to leave a job half done no matter how dirty it can be.
