Big Show vs. Jack Swagger
Swagger got a mic up on the stage to let everyone know he’s protesting the fact he had to defend his World Title in a Fatal Fourway. Swagger said it’s impossible for a natural-born champion like himself to come out victorious. Swagger said he was cheated and he’s invoked his rematch clause for Money in the Bank PPV. Swagger said “cheaters never win and winners never cheat.” Swagger vowed until he gets a rematch he’s going to make everyone suffer. Swagger told Big Show right now he’s going to make him suffer.
Swagger got dominated early by Show, including a massive Superplex from off the corner. Show stayed down on the mat while Swagger rolled around on the floor outside the ring.
Late in the match, Show had Swagger in a chokehold and was going to do the Chokeslam. Swagger countered and it looked like he was going to roll through for a pin. Instead, he put on an ankle lock. Show was screaming in pain but finally managed to grab the bottom rope. Swagger dropped to the mat and kept the hold on. The ref called for the DQ since Swagger wouldn’t respond to his orders. Swagger kept it on after the bell until finally two refs got him to stop.
Swagger was still down on the mat holding his ankle in pain as Swagger glared at him from the top of the stage. Finally, Show got himself up with the ropes to stare up at Swagger, then fell back down to the mat again for the refs to help him.
Winner: Big Show wins due to disqualification of Jack Swagger.
