(1) Intercontinental Championship Match: Dolph Ziggler (c) with Vicki Guerrero vs Kofi Kingston. Vicki try’s to cut a promo before the match but the fans won’t let her. Kofi looks to have new gear tonight. Kofi tosses Dolph to the floor and goes for a suicide dive but Vicki pulls Ziggler out of the way and Kofi crashes and burns into the security wall. Ziggler try’s to lock in the sleeper hold but Kingston makes it to the ropes. Dolph keeps the hold on but breaks at five so that he does not get disqualified. Stryker is talking up Vicki’s looks. He said she looks like Joan Jett was stung by bees. She does seem to be a bit thinner than usual. Kofi hits a Thez Press but the official pulls him off as he try’s to use closed right hands. Kingston nails the Boom Drop for a near fall. Kofi goes for a top rope cross body but Dolph reverses it for a near fall. Kofi misses Trouble in Paradise and Ziggler locks on the sleeper hold. Nexus has hit the ring and are attacking both men.Ãƒâ€š Dolph and Vicki flee the scene. Nexus has Kingston surrounded 7 on 1. Young and Barrett both give Kofi their finishing moves. Wade has the microphone now. He said that was just a taste of what they have in store for later tonight. He says team WWE is searching for a seventh member but that doesn’t not matter. He said the roster is so split and divided that none of them will be able to stay on the same page long enough to beat them tonight. He says NEXUS is the most dominate force in WWE history and You are Either Nexus or Against Us.
