Episode summary Edit

Dolph Ziggler vs Big E. Langston Edit

After being decimated by The Shield on Raw, Dolph Ziggler looked to take out some frustrations against his former heavy and Divas Champion AJ Lee’s “best friend,” Big E Langston, on SmackDown.

Langston assaulted The Showoff before the bell even rang, clocking Ziggler from behind. When Dolph assured the referee he was okay, the match officially started and Big E once again put his scary strength — and temper — on display.

Just when it looked like Ziggler was getting back on track, AJ inserted herself into the mix, delivering a fierce shot to her ex-boyfriend with the referee distracted. But when Big E went for the Big Ending, The Showoff countered with the Zig Zag out of nowhere, and picked up the big Friday night win without even taking off his t-shirt.

Results Edit

  • Singles Match: Dolph Ziggler defeated Big E. Langston (w/ AJ Lee)
