Oct 30, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
TAMPA, Fla. – On the night before Halloween, the WWE Universe was in for an action-packed edition of WWE Main Event. Kofi Kingston did his best to survive against the monstrous Ryback, while Heath Slater tried to avoid the venomous bite of Santino Marella’s Cobra. Fandango came face-to-face with the Frankenstein-ish Great Khali and Los Matadores charged into action with the costumed El Torito by their side.
Ryback def. Kofi Kingston
Kofi Kingston didn’t have to worry about Freddy Krueger or Jason Voorhees chasing him down on the night before Halloween. He did, however, have a massive monster coming for him on WWE Main Event, in the form of Ryback.
Furious after back-to-back losses to CM Punk, The Big Guy was looking to get back in the win column Wednesday night. Kingston tried to use his rapid-fire kicks and speed to stick and move against his larger foe, but the monstrous Ryback was able to ground The Dreadlocked Dynamo.
After a series of kicks that wounded his lip, Ryback retreated to the floor. However, that might have been the worst place to go, as Kofi dove over the rope, crashing into his muscular foe.
Though The Wildcat staggered the beast with his stick and move offense, he never truly got a chance to get going. Ryback constantly cut him off, using his immense power to bulldoze the former Intercontinental Champion. He smiled as he brutalized Kingston, making it seem like it was easy.
It wasn’t a cakewalk for Ryback, though. Kingston spun over one of Ryback’s Meathook clotheslines, flooring the monster with devastating DDT. Ryback finally caught the speedy Kingston with a clubbing blow and Shell Shocked his foe to claim victory.
